TO PROMOTE JUNIOR ICE HOCKEY ACROSS THE SOUTH EAST OF ENGLAND AND TO DEVELOP AND ENCOURAGE RESPECT, TEAMWORK, DISCIPLINE AND HARD WORK IN ALL OF ITS PLAYERS
Ice hockey has been played and watched at Planet Ice Gillingham (or 'The Ice Bowl' for our more mature readers) for over 30 years.
Invicta Junior Ice Hockey Club's aim is to ensure that this continues by ensuring a junior development programme is in place that offers children an opportunity not just to play ice hockey, but to grow as individuals.
There are numerous benefits for children who play ice hockey. Improvements in fitness, strength, co-ordination and agility, as well as development in confidence, sportsmanship and self-esteem.
Above all else, we want to ensure children have fun in a positive, healthy and safe environment.
Invicta Junior Ice Hockey Club (‘IJIHC’ or ‘the Club’) is voluntary organisation established to administer, manage and promote junior ice hockey based at Gillingham Ice Rink.
Invicta Junior Ice Hockey Club is a member of the English Ice Hockey Association (the ‘EIHA’).
Members of Invicta Junior Ice Hockey Club are registered with the EIHA to enable the insured participation in ice hockey training and games.
Invicta Junior Ice Hockey Club members pay fees directly to Gillingham Winter Sports Club, a charitable company responsible for the operation of Gillingham Ice Rink.
Membership fees paid by cover the cost of ice time, official EIHA referee costs for games and other costs.
