We are UEA Ice: home of ice hockey team UEA Avalanche, ice skating and figure skating:


If you are interested in Ice Hockey, Figure Skating or just standard Ice Skating, then we are the club for you!

Whether you want to casually skate for fun, practice your slapshot, or polish your triple axel, we can help you. We are a development club for figure skaters and hockey players alike. We take part in figure skating competitions as well as challenge/friendly games and National competitions for ice hockey.

We cater for beginners who have never skated before all the way up to advanced skaters. If you enjoy being a part of a close community of people that enjoy socialising and skating together, please give us a visit at Sports Fayre or get in touch with any of our committee. Please ask us any questions you may have! No equipment or previous experience is required.

Come visit us and have some fun!

UEA Avalanche:

UEA Avalanche is the one and only ice hockey team at UEA! Made up of mixed aged, gendered and ability staff, students and alumni, the team plays non-checking games in the British University Ice Hockey Association, currently part of BUIHA Division 2 South league tournament after being promoted in 2019 from Division 3 South. The team takes on skaters of every ability and there is a space for everyone - no tryouts required! In additition to league games, the team also takes part in friendly games with other BUIHA and rec teams and at the end of the year, have their own 'All Star' game featuring alumni members and team VIPs. While league games are an essential part of the year for the team, the most eagerly anticipated games are those at Nationals which takes place in Sheffield during the April break. As of last year, the team also has a dedicated development team which plays their own games throughout the year. Known affectionately as the 'aBs', UEA Avalanche B team made their debut last year at the BUIHA National Tournament in Tier VI.

Anyone wishing to join the team is welcome to contact us. Brand new players/skaters are advised to take part in rec skates and off ice trainings before taking part in 'on ice' training.

For anyone wishing to join the team and play games, BUIHA Registration must be bought first. Please contact our secretary for this. If you already have EIHA or a similar hockey insurance, you will still need BUIHA. Again, contact our secretary for more details/information.
