Our 
Story

The Youth Division was founded in January 2008 and was the first youth club in the UK. It originally started for Reception school age (4-5) children and then expanded to other ages when parents asked if siblings could play. The Ealing Eagles Youth Division started playing on the Drayton Manor Estate in West Ealing and then moved to Elthorne Sports Centre in 2013. In 2012, the Ealing Eagles worked together with Ball Hockey UK to create the first BHUK Junior Nationals at with our 9 and under team became the first ever Champions in that age category. Since then we have competed all years except for one. 

 

The club was set up to provide a fun, safe physical activity which:

  • Teaches respect, sportsmanship and consideration of others 

  • Provides an inexpensive, affordable energetic activity 

  • Provides an activity covering a wide age range thus enabling all your children from a family to join in 

  • Introduces children to a new sport that is very popular in Canada and Eastern Europe. 

 

While the club is open to all including beginners, they club has had the following accomplishments:
