When places become available, we’ll contact you to invite your child for some taster sessions. You can then decide together whether they’d like to join Inverleith.

For training:

Shin pads and a well fitting gum shield, hockey can be dangerous!

Any sports clothing. Sticks can be provided.

A full water bottle.

Please wear very warm clothes in the winter months, including hat and gloves. Don’t forget to name all belongings.

For matches:

It helps to look and feel like a team if players all wear purple socks and purple tops. These do not have to be official club kit.

Should you wish to buy official club kit, PSL Team Sports supplies this for us via their online store. More about Club Shop

See our Club Shop page for details on what kit to order and how to order it.
