Skating is a great way to keep fit and have fun, but with Irish weather being so unpredictable (four seasons in the one day) it can be difficult to find time or a safe place to practice.

 

Mayo Bulls hosts Scrimmages in a dry, safe environment free from roads, traffic and doggy doo doo.

 

Our Scrimmage sessions allow our members to jump straight into a game of hockey with friends and other members. Sessions are under qualified coaches.
