Last night we hosted an amazing Learn to Sledge session in conjunction with our sponsors, Irwin Mitchell and friends.
Irwin Mitchell are passionate about helping us spread the amazing sport of para ice hockey and we are very grateful for their ongoing support.
We have more photos to follow on our facebook page but we had to share this one first!
An amazing night with amazing people. Thank you to everyone involved. We hope you had as much fun as we did
As you are probably aware, your Sheffield Steelkings were finalists in the best sport category of the National Lottery Awards.
Last Friday Coach Jake Oakley and Captain David Scivill took some of the team down to the BBC studios in London for the awards ceremony.
We have had an amazing time and met some wonderful people over the last 4 years and are extremely excited and proud to have been chosen as the best National Lottery funded sports project for 2018.
We’d like to thank all of our supporters and sponsors who have helped us to become the club we are today and continue to help us as we strive to reach the potential we know we have.
You can watch the awards on BBC One at 22:45 tonight.
As a thank you we are having a “Fire and Ice” exhibition game at IceSheffield on the 5th October starting at 17:50, and with free entry we hope to see you there.
For anyone who hasn’t seen our social media accounts lately, your Sheffield Steelkings are in the finals of the National Lottery Awards 2018!
