Dear players and parents,

As you know we are joining the French speaking Belgian league as of the 2018-2019 season (except Minis). This is a new important milestone for the club enabled by the strong foundations on which we have grown over the last years.

Joining the attractive Belgian league will be a big step forward for us. With no doubt we will develop our competitiveness and strongly strengthen our team and club spirit. It will of course require commitments from all of us.

The Belgian league plays outdoor and the season is divided in two phases: from September to November and from March to June, with +/- 10 matches during each phase. 

Matches will take place on Saturdays. Each team will play one week out of two in Luxembourg. This means that foreign clubs will visit our pitch regularly, helping to develop the club life and the sporty atmosphere. One week out of two we will play away against clubs such as Arlon, Namur, Huy, Liège, Brussels.

Like for many sports, outdoor trainings will thus be moved from weekends to weekdays (on Tuesdays and Thursdays), which involves a different commitment and organization from all of us.

The winter indoor training season will remain unchanged with trainings on Thursdays and Saturdays.

More details will follow as soon as available. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate in the meantime to contact your team manager, Ivan (youth coordinator;youth@hockey.lu) or Nacho (head of coaches; nacho.gomezacebo@gmail.com).
