Hi, I’m Becky & I’m the 1st XI captain for the 2020/21 season.
The 1st team is a really friendly, fun group of girls who all share a passion for hockey. We play on Saturdays against local teams in Warwickshire hockey leagues, as well as on Wednesdays against other universities in BUCS. Although BUCS won’t be starting until January this year, we still have the Saturday games planned (COVID permitting) & we are only even more determined to smash Warwickshire Division 1.
We train on the pitch twice a week and have fitness sessions with a strength and conditioning coach. And whilst we work hard on the pitch, we always find time for socials. You can catch us at full club socials (including Circle, bar crawls and film nights) as well as at our own team events, such as team meals.
Having played 2 seasons on the 1st team, I can honestly say the girls I have played with at the UWLHC will be friends for life. Playing for this team has been such a fundamental part of my university experience and I could not imagine coming back from my year abroad without returning to these fantastic girls.
Please feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions about playing at the UWLHC, or just about university life in general!
