Leiden Islanders ice hockey team looking for expats


As a team of the official ice hockey club ‘Leiden Lions’ we participate in the “recreational” division of the “Dutch Hockey League”.

Our team

Our team consists of former students between the age of 20 to 50. A healthy mix of lawyers, economists, engineers and foreign expats from companies like Shell, Europol, Ernst & Young and many more.

We are looking for new members, locals and expats who enjoy playing semi competitive ice hockey and enjoy having a beer after the game.

Our season runs from October to March:

  • Practice, once a week on Wednesday in Leiden at 20.30 p.m.
  • Games, once a week on weekends in Leiden or away games in Amsterdam, Zoetermeer or Utrecht.
  • Social events, such as yearly BBQ’s and tournaments.

Our home base is located at the Leiden Ice Hockey Rink, Vondellaan in Leiden (just behind Central Station) which provides us with a nice bar to enjoy drinks after games and practice.


Those of you who are interested are more than welcome to attend a practice or just come and take a look to one of our games without any obligations.

Feel free to contact Pascal van Roosmalen for more information at pascalvanroosmalen@gmail.com or sign up through our sign-up form.
