Introduction:
Philly Hockey Club is passionate about indoor hockey and many of our coaches have coached and played at the highest level of the indoor game. Indoor is as an ideal opportunity to develop high levels of skill, dexterity, game awareness, speed, and fitness.

We will base our indoor training programs at Philly Sport Center, Newtown PA, the clubs new facility. The facility boast one indoor court, lobby and mezzanine area for spectator viewing, bathrooms and office space. Our members will have year-round exclusive access to a brand-new, high quality indoor hockey facility.

We will run:
Travel team programs
Individual and small group lessons
Club Clinics
University Showcases
Indoor Team Tournaments

Travel Squads:
Teams are competitive and training is challenging. We require a high level of commitment regarding attendance, personal fitness levels, and skill training on your own. Teams will be assigned a coach, train together weekly and compete in various tournaments through the indoor season.
Players in U10 to U19 age groups will register for our indoor travel team try-outs.
U08 players are encouraged to register for our upcoming clinics. Dates will be posted soon.

Private Lessons:
Individual and small group lessons will be run prior to our scheduled training sessions. Lessons are designed to develop players skills and fitness, and are recommended for players aspiring to be the best player possible.

All of our programs follow FIH rules.
