Cardiff Medics Ladies’ Hockey Club is an ambitious and sociable club for Cardiff students studying any course, and of any hockey ability.
Our ethos allows students to participate in a team sport alongside their course and other commitments. We acknowledge that these are sometimes your main priority, and will not penalise you for that!
We currently have 3 teams and a development squad, all competing in a variety of leagues:
- On Wednesdays, BUCS league Western 1a, alongside UWE 1s and Cardiff Uni 2s, top of the league at the end of the 19/20 season
- On Saturdays, South Wales Women’s Hockey (SWWL) Premier league 1, competing against teams across South Wales such as Gwent 1s, Cardiff Uni 1s & 2s and Cardiff & Met 1s
- Semi-finalists in BUCS Cup
- On Wednesdays, BUCS league Western 3b, alongside Swansea 2s, Aberystwyth 2s and Cardiff Met 3s
- On Saturdays, SWWL Division 2 after a promotion at the end of 19/20 season
- Quarter finalists in BUCS Cup
- On Saturdays, SWWL Division 4
The development squad is set up to encourage those that have never played hockey or haven't played in a long time to come and join us and improve their skills and build confidence. Most of our games are friendlies against other local clubs.
Training is on at Talybont Astro
- 1’s and 2’s are on Sunday’s 4-6pm
- 3’s and Dev squad are on Sunday’s 9.30-11am
- Fitness sessions on Monday’s
Everyone is expected to attend these sessions (hungover or otherwise), but we understand that events clash and work piles up, just let your captains know (especially if you’re aiming for a team place!)
We have regular mixed NAMS matches with our male counterpart Cardiff Medics Men’s Hockey. In November we head off to Southampton for TITS (Tournament in the South) for a night to (not) remember! This is followed up with a NAMS weekend tournament, last year held in Birmingham, and in the summer we head to Sonning Hockey Festival.
Socials are great fun with CMLHC, they're a very popular aspect of membership and a great way to become closer with everyone in the club. Wednesday evenings start off at Cathays Sports and Social with all the medics sports teams. After we have all caught up with each other we make our way down to the Student Union for #YOLO. We have themed nights throughout the year such as toga night, ABBA and Halloween social. The Christmas social and Hockey Ball are two socials we hold jointly with the boys and are a great way to celebrate both individual and team successes throughout the year.
Full membership – £60 for the whole year (reductions are made for people who join in January)
Social membership – £10 (this is purely for attending socials, no hockey is included here!)
Club Refund Policy – Refunds of up to 80% the full value of annual membership fees will be given for 30 days after membership has been paid. If you would like to remain as a social member only, an additional £10 (social member fee) will be deducted from your refund.
