To promote junior ice hockey across the south-east of England while developing
and encouraging respect, team, 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 this continues with a junior development programme 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, coordination and agility. And 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 a 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’).

Invicta Junior Ice Hockey Club members 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 Bison in the Community, a charitable company responsible for the operation of Gillingham Ice Rink.


Membership fees paid cover the cost of ice time, official EIHA referee costs for games and the successful running of the club.


IJIHC is administered by a committee of volunteers, whose collective aims are the successful management of the Club and the achievement of the its mission statement.

The Committee is made up of several key positions along with the team managers of each of our junior ice hockey teams. 


If you would like to step up and volunteer to help the Club in a specific role and join the IJIHC Committee, please speak to your Team Manager or email invictajuniors@gmail.com.
