Club History

image415

The Basingstoke Barracudas Ice Hockey Club with founded in June of 2015 following a meeting of like minded amateur hockey players from the local area who had answered the call of two people who wanted to change the face of recreational hockey in Basingstoke. 


Despite a strong hockey culture in the town already Liam Concannon and Mark Austen saw a gap in the market for a new team to come to fruition, born from peoples desire to find a club that was genuinely welcoming to all-comers regardless of experience or training; a good attitude and a willingness to work hard were all that was required. A club with no internal politics; purely a desire to play as a team and grow as one.


The clubs first year comprised largely of developing core skills, working on communication and finding our identity as a club. Numbers grew steadily and moral was high. 


Year two saw the club enter its first tournament, the Keen Cup. Out manoeuvred and out gunned, the season proved to be a real learning curve for the team as a whole. We were dealt some heavy blows but we always walked away with our heads held high and received a raft of compliments from our opponents on both our effort for such a young club and our attitude to the game. The end of the season saw the departure of Mark from the club as he set about other adventures but we continued to better ourselves into the summer.


Year three saw much improvement and development throughout the club. A new year and a new challenge as we found an opportunity in a new competition specifically set up for development clubs such as ours. We were pitted against clubs of varying talents but also found ourselves beginning to develop our own style of play. The addition of experienced coach Paul Standing sparked a transformation in the teams thinking and turned the clubs performances on the ice around.

Finishing 3rd in the league by a goal difference of just 2 on the last day of the season, the club were spurred on to do even better this year. 


With silverware in our sights for 2018/19 we continue to grow and develop as a club with bright plans for the future.
