Type: Team sports
In cooperation with SIJVA Thor the USC offers ice hockey. SIJVA Thor means: Students IJshockey Club Amsterdam Thor. There is a reason they call ice hockey the fastest team sport in the world. It is intensity is so high, during games, players only stand on the ice for a maximum of two minutes at a time and changes are made in high frequency. It is a sport that requires you to not only have a good condition, but also balls.
Training sessions are twice a week and take place at the Jaap Eden Ice rink in Amsterdam. During these hours you follow a program on your own level in which you can improve your condition and techniques.
If you would like to join the team, it’s best to come and take a look at our training. If you are enthusiastic you can join us for a training afterwards. The first times you can borrow gear from Thor, after that you will have to buy your own set. As a beginning ice hockey player you have to do a fair investment to get yourself the necessary equipment.
