On the rocks 2022 was a massive hit

Wild Lions took part in 2022 On the Rock tournament and had a blast.

This event took place on Saturday and Sunday.

This year we teamed up with Misfits players Fiona, Nicola, and Jess. We would like to thank all 3 for joining Wild Lions this year and they brought a great attitude and fun to the bench all weekend.

We then had 2 players Sammy & Danny who have been playing inline hockey for just over 12 months, both of them showed improvement from when they played in the tournament last October and some moments of coming close to scoring and making some important plays in the game.

We also had a beginner to inline hockey Claire, who started playing 6 weeks ago but she did not look out of place making some good tackles and passes as well as managed to get a breakaway and put the shot on target but was saved by the keeper.

We also had Abbie from White Lions and Hannah from Cayotes completing the final 2 players for the weekend and bringing some experience, energy and leadership to the team.

In goal, we had kate who has also been playing for just over 12 months, and again put on another great performance and finished runner-up in star player of the tournament.

Scores for the weekend were as follows:

Saturday

12 – 4 to Lycans

2 – 1 to Angles

6 – 0 to Sirens

5 – 0 to London Lions

4 – 0 to Pucklings

Sunday

2 – 0 to Angles

7 – 0 to Sirens

2 – 0 to London Lions

2 – 1 to Lycans

4 – 0 Pucklins

Even though we did not get a win over the 2 days the scores were much improved from last year and every team made a comment on how much improvement the players had made in the last 12 months. All of our players left with their heads held high in how far they have come in such a short time.

Wild lions then played in the 6th vs 5th spot final against Angels in which we had already seen 2 close games between the 2 teams.

This game was to be another close game and even though Angles made a 2 – 0 lead our players pulled it back to 2 – 2 and took the game into penalties but unfortunately lost out on the shootout 1 -0.

We would also like to thank all the teams for being supportive of all of our players throughout the tournament and making them feel welcome even with the less experience we had.

Big thanks to everyone involved in making the tournament happen as without Holimae, Clint, the 2 refs, the timekeeper, Photographer & the rink itself this tournament would not have gone ahead and the players would have never had the chance to gain the experience they have gained this weekend.

Wild Lions would also like to give a special thank you to Rachel Wells who was also down to play with us this tournament but had to isolate due to covid the day before the tournament started. We hope you are feeling better soon we see you join us for another tournament soon.

Wild Lions would also like to congratulate Sirens on winning the tournament this year. You were defiantly deserved winners over the weekend but we could see the other teams around pushing to get to the final.

If anyone in the Manchester area is looking for a female inline hockey team to join or even try inline hockey for the 1st time then come and join our Wild Lions inline hockey training session on a Monday evening at Ardwick Sports center 7:30pm until 9pm.

Black Lions & Under 16s Lions secure BRHA Nationals

Saturday saw the Lions Under 16s team secure a Nationals sport by winning both of their games in the Junior North West League.

On Sunday Lions Black secured 1st place in the West B senior league and a B senior nationals place this season has seen a very equal footing between all teams taking part and there is still the 2nd Nationals sport to play for in the final game weekend.

This has definitely been one of the most challenging session’s we have had as a club after getting to normal after the lockdowns, but it’s been great to see our Senior players coming together and pushing on from where we were before lockdown.

We would like to also give a special thank you to Nicola Gotts who has been the main driving force with our North West Junior teams this year. Without you this would have been an impossible task to complete and seeing the under 16s make nationals is iceing on the cake.

For anyone asking about next season we will be announcing our plans on what the 2022/23 season will be like once Nationals are done as we still have Wild Lions & White Lions game days to complete.

Full Everyone Inline Hockey Class videos

We had a great turn out this week with a very good mix of age groups.

We started off with a horseshoe then a Puck handling drill and then had a big game at the end.

We split the group up into under 8s and over 10s.

This worked out really well and the kids and adults had a great time.

Wild Lions Inline Hockey training Full Videos from 13/06/22

This week we had another new player try Inline Hockey for the 1st time and apart from a few falls had a great time and showed improvement throughout the training session.

We also had improvements from everyone else including Nat in goal who is now starting to grasp skating and covering the ground, Claire who has now been to 3 sessions but showing great progression and we think will be ready to be thrown in to the deep end of playing games & Joyce who is in her early 70s but you would not think this with the Improvement she has made over the last 2 weeks she has been coming.

This week we worked on basic skills and skating but added some more complex movements in for the players who are a little more experienced in the sport.
