Indoor hockey differs from the outdoor game in size of playing area, playing surface, number of players, equipment and skills used. We, at Philly Hockey Club, are passionate about indoor hockey. Many of our coaches have played at the highest level of the indoor game. Indoor is as an ideal opportunity to develop high levels of skill aqusition, game awareness, speed, dexterity and fitness.

Travel Squads:
For age groups from U12 to U19.
Players wishing to participate on U12 U14, U16 or U19 travel squads must tryout in August (program details below). Teams are competitive and training is challenging. We require a high level of commitment regarding attendance, personal fitness levels, and skill training in your own. Teams will be assigned a coach, train together weekly and compete in various tournaments through the indoor season.

Skill Sessions:
For age groups U10 to U16 run Saturday mornings. No team or tournament commitments with this program.
We offer two block of 5 sessions. Either register for 1 or both blocks. Its a great opportunity to maintain or improve hockey skills or to test out the indoor game. Skill Session program details here >.

All of our programs follow FIH rules.
