Ice Hockey


Founded in 2001, the Birmingham Lions Ice Hockey Club is a British University Ice Hockey Association (BUIHA) affiliated club based at the University of Birmingham, representing Higher Education institutions in Birmingham (University of Birmingham, University College Birmingham, Birmingham City University, Newman University, Aston University).


We have sessions for both beginners and experienced players and also run regular socials where members can get to know each other and bond as a team. No matter your hockey or skating ability, anyone will be welcomed to our club, even if you just want to join us for the socials!


We compete at all levels and cater for all abilities from those that have never skated before to those that have played for years! We pride ourselves on being inclusive club that has experienced great success in previous years. 48% of our registered players were female in the 2019/20 season, despite traditionally being a male dominated sport. We also have many players who are openly part of the LGBTQ+ community as well as having a large proportion of international players. These strides we have made as a club to create a diverse and inclusive team has led to us being nominated for the UBSport ‘Pride Award’ for 2 years running.


Training is at Planet Ice Solihull Ice which is a 20-minute drive from The Guild of Students.
