Al Ain has its very own ice hockey team, the Al Ain Vipers. They run youth teams and a men’s team and provide training from absolute beginner upwards.
They are now taking applications for new members from boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 18 to play what they call “the coolest game in town”.
All players welcome regardless of experience – they provide training from beginning to advanced level players. Equipment is available from the club.
Weekly training takes place on Saturday mornings at the Hili Ice Rink. Additionally players participate in weekly Viper League games, tournaments in the UAE and around the Gulf, and occasional hockey camps run by professional players and coaches.
Players between 12 and 18 practice Saturdays 9-10.30am; Sundays 6-7pm; Mondays 5.30-6.30pm
Players over 9 under 12 practice Saturdays 10:30 am -12 pm; Tuesdays 6.45 pm – 7.45 pm
Players under 9 practice at Al Ain Mall Tuesdays 5.30 pm – 6.30 pm
