The Leiden Blues Team was founded in 2012 as the Rusty Blades 2 and became the Leiden Blues in 2013. The blues are mostly and entry level ( beginner) team composed by a great mixture of skill level, age, gender and nationalities. Players age varies from 20 years old to 60 years old including more than 10 different nationalities, both male and female.
We believe that it is never too late to start playing ice hockey and that is why we have members who have played the game ever since their childhood while others just started out this season. Even though no one is exceptionally skilled, we do thoroughly enjoy the game and are always up for a beer in the 4th period.
The Blue started as a recreational ice hockey team and is now the biggest team training at the Schaatshal Leiden. Due to this to exceptional success, a competition team was created on season 2019/2020.
While the competition team (Blues) are representing Leiden on the 5th Division league, the recreational team (Baby Blues) regularly play friendly games against similar teams.
Our practices are on Thursday evenings from 22:00 until 23:00 (Blues) and on Saturday evenings from 20:15 until 21:15 (Baby Blues) in Schaatshal Leiden.
Teamleider: Cas Neuman & Melitza Hesseling
Trainer: Johan van den Haak & Bas Gerritsen
