The Rileys IHC is an inline hockey club based in Dublin, Ireland. Since 2013, we have been involved in organising and running training (pickup hockey) sessions in various locations around Dublin. We have always focused on providing an environment where any inline player is welcome to come and have a scrimmage. Around 2017, we formed a team to compete in the Inline Hockey Ireland (IHI) league.
We don't take things too seriously. Most of what we do is create an outlet where players can enjoy a scrimmage, no refs, no one keeping score, just pickup hockey. The purpose of the club is to create and foster a good, relaxed and friendly environment, where players can really enjoy the game. We work to carry this ethos into our IHI games.
We have been unable to train for most of 2021, due to COVID-19. We resumed training in September; since then we've trained 28 times, with an average attendence of 10.29 players and 1.68 goalies. We run our training as pick-up hockey open sessions.
This graph shows the number of times that we've trained each month, in the past year.
Players from all over the shop come to our training sessions!
