Cardiff Comets train at The Viola Arena on Ice Pad 1 (Formerly known as Ice Arena Wales) every Wednesday at 8:30pm (for 1 hour). There is free entry if you would like to come down to the rink and see a training session in action.
Join us, Get involved!
We encourage any Girls/ Women that are interested in playing ice hockey to come down and give training a go with us (1st Lesson is FREE!) however basic skating ability is advised before trying the fast-paced and sometimes physical game of hockey. Training equipment is not essential and can be provided for you given notice to the club beforehand – Contact us HERE and we’ll get things arranged ready for the session you plan to attend. Your own skates will be required however should you not own your own pair of skates all is not lost, the team does have some spare skates (size depending).
What to expect at Training
The team all aim to arrive for 7:15pm for a quick 15/30 min off ice warm up (stretching & cardio) followed by kitting up ready for on ice training at 8:30pm (For new players we recommend allowing 30 mins before the start of on ice training to get kitted up). The on ice training session consists of a quick warm up followed by free time practice elements and then the practice drills run by the Coaches – These are normally split between the different coaches depending on Player skill level so that everyone gets the most out of training.
