HEAR FROM OUR CLUB MEMBERS...
"After 9 years at my previous club, I was looking to play a better standard. Initially I was unsure about joining SHC, but felt welcomed and comfortable from the first training session. We have lots of banter and laugh through our mistakes - but when it comes to match time, everyone's on the same page. Most Saturday evenings, I've ended up at the club house for a social or just drinks. Ive felt welcomed by everyone in my first season and look forward to many more."
"My son started playing here with the men's development squad, rising through into the men's first team within a couple of seasons. I was communicated with at every stage of his development, feeling confident he was in safe hands. It's an incredibly welcoming club and one of the best decisions he's made in his 16 years of life." - Jen Conway

"I couldn't recommend Sittingbourne HC enough. They are the most welcoming and friendly club we have ever been to. My son has enjoyed the junior club so much that we both started walking hockey together and love it. The classes are fun, non-judgemental and have really helped build my son's confidence. My only regret is that we didn't join sooner."
"This club isn't just hockey, it's a family of hockey lovers. Everyone is friendly and kind - all there to cheer each other on as we strive for success in the league. SHC is great! It's not just hockey, it's fun. I have made friends for life from the juniors and women's training. I am proud to be a member of such a great group of people".
"Sitiingbounre HC is a very sociable club. This goes from games on a Saturday (with the social aspect after in the clubhouse) to walking hockey - with drinks in the clubhouse afterwards. SHC are an all-round club. It welcomes anyone with all abilities and creates a great family environment."
"Sittingbourne HC is a friendly, welcoming club with a great family environment. It is extremely sociable and epitomises everything a good club is by catering from youngsters through to the older generations, for example with its walking hockey. Proud to be part of a fantastic club and look forward to seeing what the future brings."
"Ciaran has progressed from mini's training on a Sunday morning to making his 1st XI debut at the age of 17. Ciaran has enjoyed the structured training sessions, with coaches encouraging his progression. It's been a great journey for Ciaran and for us parents watching." - Colin Higgins
"At 13, Jacob decided to give hockey a go and made his 4th team debut this season. Being invited to 1s squad training was the turning point. By the end of his season, he was holding the 2nd team spot as his own. With the Fortitude training offered by the club, he is now GK obsessed."- Ed Carter
"I joined SHC 6 years ago and have loved every moment. After getting together with a member, I was drawn into the social side and then a women's training session. I hadn't played since I was in secondary school. From the start, everyone showed great patience and great encouragement. I have felt welcomed and have made friends for a lifetime."
"So far at Sittingbourne Hockey Club I have made lots of new friends and built my confidence through the two years of being there. Everyone is inspiring and that's the main reseaon why I decided to become a goal keeper. In General, I think Sittingbourne HC is a perfect club for everyone. Everybody makes you feel welcome and happy."
