WELCOME TO MILTON KEYNES STORM
Ice hockey is one of the most exciting sports around for players as well as spectators. Taking part can provide benefits that go far beyond the ice rink: improved health and physical fitness, social skills, team-building capabilities and enhanced confidence, to name a few of the long-term benefits.
Milton Keynes Junior Ice Hockey Club, the MK Storm, was formed over 20 years ago and now has over 120 members. The mission of the club is to promote, govern and improve organised ice hockey in Milton Keynes and the surrounding area.
Our Director of Junior Development is MK Lightning legend Nick Poole, who is responsible for overseeing the development programme of MK Storm, helping members improve all the way from beginners to match-winners. Under Nick’s watchful eye, MK Lightning stars Jordan Hedley, Ross Green, Ross Bowers and Leigh Jamieson all progressed from MK Storm up to the English Premier League, some earning international call-ups along the way.
We play under the jurisdiction of the English Ice Hockey Association, and have teams at U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 levels, as well as a very busy and successful ‘Learn to Play’ programme, to help even absolute beginners get involved.
All coaching staff involved with the Storm have undergone stringent CRB checks, and we operate within a comprehensive child protection policy, to ensure the welfare of everyone involved and for parents’ peace of mind. We hope that our players will learn the skills and drills that the game requires, in an atmosphere of fun combined with the discipline that a team sport requires.
A warm welcome at the Planet Ice Arena in Milton Keynes awaits all players and members old and new – whether you are taking your first tentative steps with MK Storm, or have your sights set on progressing to a higher level!
