Whether you have played before, or not, our club has everything to offer.
Please come and visit our stall at the Bunfight on Wednesday 24th September to meet some of the team and find out more (If you can’t visit the Bunfight, please express interest using the ‘contact us’ section of this website). You will get the opportunity to speak with existing players, and we will provide you with information about our initial ‘taster’ sessions.
We provide all the kit to begin with, so if you’ve never played before our qualified coaches will get you playing like a pro in no time at all.
We have 4 Ice hockey teams, and 2 Inline Hockey teams, so regardless of your experience you will get the opportunity to play in a team that matches your individual ability.
Our Ice Hockey A team is the best in the country!, so if you’ve been playing at a high level before getting to university you will get the chance to play amongst the very best.
Off the rink, our Socials are some of the best of all the university sports clubs. Check out the ‘Socials’ section of this website to find out more.
See you at the Bunfight!!
The Southampton Spitfires have truly stepped it up a gear this 2013/14 season. The club entered 4 Ice hockey teams into the BUIHA Nationals and now has 2 Inline hockey teams.
The club has also overhauled it’s image this season. Our logo has evolved to match the progress made on the rink, and the club colours have been slightly altered to match the wider ‘Team Southampton’ branding. This evolution in the design of the legendary Spitfires kit has meant taking delivery of brand new jerseys, socks and inline trousers.
Our New Website celebrates this success, and provides an outward-facing platform for the team to showcase our achievements to the world. We also hope to influence current Ice and Inline hockey players who are in the process of selecting a university, to choose the University of Southampton!
Nearly every player on the Inline B Team started this season without ever having played inline hockey. Some of the team had never roller skated before! Their 17-6 win last night against local beginner’s team, the Solent Geckos, was a true testament to how far the team, and the players, have come. The scoreline was fantastic, with the points being distributed across the team, top goal scorer was team captain Andrew Betts. But more impressive than the scoreline, was the quality displayed in every aspect of the game, the positioning, passing, receiving, stick handling and of course shooting.
It is quite possible that this years inline beginners/freshers have been the best the club has ever seen?! Many of the Inline B Team also play in the Ice C Team, which means they are able to train, and have been training, as much as 3-4 times a week! It is this dedication and commitment which has allowed them to progress at such speed.
The Southampton Spitfires Ice A Team regained their number one spot at the top of university ice hockey this weekend. In an impressive display of form the team beat the Edinburgh Eagles 5-2 in the BUIHA Tier I final.
With the best Ice team, the equal most number of ice teams, one of the best Inline teams, and the equal most number of inline teams, does this make the Spitfires the best university Ice & Inline Hockey club in the country?!
The Ice A Team regain their crown as best University team in the UK!!
