A very warm welcome to Alderley Edge Hockey Club!
Hockey is a high-energy sport that improves players' pace, agility and lower body strength. As it requires constant movement, you can burn approximately 560 calories per game.
As a vigorous form of cardiovascular exercise it increases lung capacity, allowing more oxygen to be delivered to the organs in the body.
The effort of using a hockey stick strengthens the triceps, forearm and shoulder muscles, while the dynamic movement required to get across the pitch boosts the hamstring and calfs.
As hockey is a team game, it is an excellent way to develop communication skills and learn to work effectively with other people.
As a leading North West Hockey club we also offer a variety of social events beyond simply playing the sport.
