Miami Streaming in the Narrows Bar

PLEASE NOTE UPDATED TIMES FOR GAMES.

The team are in Miami and training hard for the tournament that starts on Wednesday 14th.

We are very lucky to have support again from Sure and the Narrows Bar to host the streaming of our games in Miami at the LATAM Cup and Amerigol ROTW Cup.

We have 4 teams playing:

The Caribbean U12 team features a number of our U12 players, they kindly offered to send a joint team to the tournament.
The Falkland Islands U16 is a team of all local players playing in the Amerigol ROTW cup
Stanley U20 is mostly local talent with a few loaner players from our friends in Miami to make up the numbers
ROTW D2 is our team of adult players from the Falkland Islands and friends of the Hockey Association who have helped us raise hockey to the level that we now enjoy here.

Here are the full current fixtures for the Falkland Islands teams.  With some dedication and grit we will get into some final games on Saturday and Sunday

2022 Season Sign up

hockey is back!

Its that time of year again.

If you want to take part in the 2022 season of inline and dek hockey please get signed up.

There are a few ways to sign up this year.

  1. Take a paper form at training evenings, or from one of the committee. Committee Details and return it to us.
  2. Head over to our Facebook group Falkland Islands Hockey and request a form there and we will get one to you.
  3. Download the forms from this site HERE, fill them in and return to either the committee in person, or email to media@hockey.co.fk

Due to popular demand we are considering a ladies dek hockey league for the first time, if you enjoyed paying ladies ball hockey, then this is very similar, and if you are interested please register your interest by signing up.

We will continue to play a mixed inline league with 5 levels (Peewee, Junior, Rookie, Elite, and Senior) and encourage all abilities, ages, and levels of experience to give it a try.  If you need help with equipment or learning to skate or play hockey then we can and want to help.

We look forward to hearing from you all!

Please try to get forms in by MONDAY 14th FEBRUARY

We are now a Charity!

Great news for Hockey!

The Falkland Islands Hockey Association is now a limited charity.  This will not impact the games that you all love to play or the general interaction players have with the Association.

It does allow us to now have better access to funding for kit, equipment, tournaments etc. It also means the AGM will need to change slightly, which is the only major difference.

Now you will have to become a member of the charity before being able to attend or vote at the AGM.  Whereas before you could attend as a player or guardian of a player.  Becoming a member is free, and you do not need to be a player, a parent of a player, or even have played before to be a member, however some connection to the association is a requirement.

Membership is free, although you will be liable to a members guarantee of £1 if we go into receivership (this is a technical requirement for charitable status)

If you wish to become a member please get in touch with us via media@hockey.co.fk, or via Falkland Islands Hockey.

 

FITV Highlights

Good news!

FITV are going to be covering the senior league with weekly highlights on their Facebook page and on their weekly news round up.  Check out this weeks highlights here: Video on FITV Facebook

We will post the link on the game stats for each game that gets highlights, and also share on our Facebook page HERE.

 

International Tournaments

To all FIHA members,
Unfortunately due to the ongoing challenges related to Coronavirus the committee has decided that we can’t commit to travelling to Miami for the Latam Cup 2021 at this time. If the situation dramatically improves we may reconsider, but at the moment we don’t think that this is likely.
We are all extremely disappointed that it has come to this, and there are two main reasons: travel complications and coronavirus risks.
– Flights – With the situation worsening in Latin America any flight option through there is not a realistic option. Which would mean flying via the UK with all the extra costs and complications associated with that.
– Coronavirus – We are not currently content that the risks to our members (especially junior players) are low enough to attend any international tournament. We had been looking to take three teams including youth and junior teams to Miami for this tournament, and would still like to in future years, however at the moment we do not feel that it is reasonable to ask anyone to travel.
We know this will be disappointing to everyone, but we will continue to play our season here, and dedicate ourselves to making it as enjoyable as possible.
We will also continue to work on other options to play ice hockey internationally in the future – and may be able to arrange something based in the UK – especially with our new links to Okanagan in Swindon, as well as future Latam Cup tournaments.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch.

but hey its not all bad news, FITV have put up a video of the opening night here: FITV launch party coverage

Wheels in Stock!

We have two types, the higher spec tachyon, and the club level pulsar.  Both excellent wheels and come with great bearings too.

KONIXX Tachyon

“A high end wheel can change your game… but it can also put a strain on your wallet. That’s why we created the Tachyon: a dual pour construction wheel that won’t cost 1/2 as much as your skates. With just the right combination of formula and additives, Konixx is proud to bring a you a wheel that grips so well you’d say it feels tachy!”

£61.00 per set which come with free Helo Swiss Bearings

KONIXX PULSAR

“The NEW Pulsar from Konixx takes the performance and durability you’ve come to expect from Konixx and delivers them onto a single pour wheel. Our proven U-Base3™ formula is married to the new Konixx K-Core™ hub to give you the best balance of rigidity and firmness, without compromising the wear of the wheel.”

£48.00 per set which come with free Helo ABEC 9 Bearings

Black tape £5White tape £7 (longer roll)

You can ask Sam or Grant for tape and we can sort it out.

 

 

League starting to heat up.

Lets go!

With every team having played a couple of games now, some of the league tables are starting to take shape.

In Peewees and Juniors its a game a piece to each team. The top three players are really making marks in the player tables, with Ethan Elsby and his younger brother Tyler Elsby topping the Peewee league with 23 and 15 points respectively in two games, with Rosie Piek close behind with 10 points in just one game!  In the Junior league, Perry Clifton leads with 12 points, then Ethan Borroye Ross with 9 and Alfonso Fajardo comes in third with 6.

In the rookie league the Phoenix have taken an early 6 points with two wins, but the Titans and Banshees holding 3 with a win each, leaving Monsters looking for their first win.  Top three players in this league are Kingsley Chipunza with a dominant 18 points, followed by Louis Francis with 9 and Hayden Stamworth with 5

In the Elite league its all very close with Knights topping with 6 points and the Dragons, Bombers, and Wolverines all having 3.  Ethan Fowler currently tops the player table with 10 points, followed closely Jacob Smith with 7 and James Hartley coming in strong with 6 in just two games compared to Jacob and Ethan having played 3.

The Senior League sees the Ducks in top spot with 6 points, Venom following with 3, and Scorpions and Beasts having a point each.  Top of the players is currently Joseph Murphy, but as he is going back to UK it remains to be seen if his 10 points will keep him in the top spot for long. Fernando Seguel and Danny Ross share second place with 4 points each.

In the Dek league the Sharks are riding high with 6, Flyers and Panthers both have 3, with the Oilers also looking for their first win.  Top players currently are Marco Leyton with 9 points, Kyran Evans with 7 and Mark Dodd with 6.

Great effort across all the leagues, and we are all really impressed with the dedication and ability right across the board.
