Hockey (Ladies & Men's)
Hockey is an extremely popular field game at Belfield with all levels catered for in both clubs.
The Ladies Hockey Club has eight competitive teams as well as having launched social hockey in the 2021/22 season. The club is proud to have created a fantastic environment for students to enjoy their ‘collidge’ hockey while also maintaining a high standard of coaching including it’s high performance programme which has benefited many past and current senior international players. The clubs competitive programme includes the Leinster League, Irish Senior and Junior Cups, Irish Hockey League, Leinster Cup, Intervarsities and Colours competitions. There are teams in various divisions of the Leinster League for players who are looking for a social way to keep fit while also competing. Anyone interested in joining should attend at pre-season which is the best opportunity to be seen by the coaches and to get a spot on a team. Pre-season begins mid-August and details are posted on the clubs social media platforms.
UCD Men’s Hockey club fields three teams, each competing in an official Leinster League. Highlight of recent years was the first teams success in gaining promotion to the EYHL in 2018/19 and reaching the Irish Senior Cup final in 2020. The club teams train twice a week. As well and EYHL2 and Leinster League, the club also competes in many cup competitions such as the Irish Senior & Junior Cups, the Intervarsities and the annual Colours match.
All levels of ability are provided for, with beginners as welcome as full international players. Although the focus in the clubs is primarily hockey-orientated, emphasis is also placed on social activities.
