Want to play for the Lions?

The closure of the Lee Valley Ice Centre isn’t stopping the Lions! We would welcome new players to the team, so if you’re interested in joining us for the 2021/22 season, please give Eddie Joseph a call on 07958 743680. 

Lee Valley Ice Centre closes its doors

After the best part of 40 years, Lee Valley Ice Centre closes its doors for the final time this weekend.  The rink will be demolished and rebuilt into a much larger venue, featuring two ice pads, cafe, gym, exercise studios and community spaces.  It is anticipated that the new centre will be completed by October 2022.  You can find out more about the plans here and you can keep updated with news on their Twitter page.

The Lions are currently looking at options for continuing with a team while that happens and any updates on this will be posted here.

In the meantime, we say a very fond farewell to the Den and the countless amazing memories it has created for so many people.

Interested in playing for the Lions this season?

*EDIT: As London is currently under Tier 4 restrictions the ice rink is closed and no training sessions can go ahead.  This position will remain unchanged until London is moved into a lower tier that allows ice rinks to operate.*

Lee Valley Ice Centre has re-opened and we are running sessions on Tuesday evenings from 8.15pm, with a £10 charge towards ice time.  If you are interested in playing for the Lions this season then you need to first call Eddie Joseph on 07958 743680 to book your place.  

IMPORTANT: For you to be allowed to go on the ice you must bring a completed Hockey Health Declaration Seniors form to each session you attend.  This is a requirement of the rink management, so if you don’t bring your form you won’t be able to skate.
