Volunteering is a fantastic way to be involved in the sport, even if you don’t fancy picking up a stick. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the sport and help keep clubs and England Ice Hockey running.

From treasurers to timekeepers, off-ice officials and club volunteers are integral to the smooth running of clubs and match days. All volunteers must register with their club and England Ice Hockey and complete any requisite training as per the England Ice Hockey Rule Book.

If you’re working with U18s, you may also be required to undertake a DBS check (free of charge) and additional safeguarding training.

For a full list of club opportunities, please see section 1 of England Ice Hockey Rule Book.

England Ice Hockey also offer a number of ways to get involved directly with the governing body, including roles in Event Management, our various committees or even as part of the England National Team Programme. Check out our volunteering opportunities here: EIH Recruitment.

How to join

All individuals must follow their affiliated club’s membership process and then register with England Ice Hockey via their club. Registration will be accepted following the submission of any required documents, such as ID, and approval from England Ice Hockey and its affiliated club.

Clubs are accessible and friendly environments providing a range of ice hockey opportunities to meet your needs, from junior and senior hockey, to recreational (casual) opportunities and clubs dedicated to meeting the needs of Para and SEND participants.

Whether you’re interested in pursuing ice hockey semi-professionally, want to play for fun, or want to volunteer as a coach or off-ice official, our opportunities and variety of clubs aim to make sure ice hockey is accessible to all.

As every club is unique and has its own fees, rules and regulations, we recommend contacting them directly to see how they can meet your needs.
