Summary of the Club
The Old Silhillians
(or "Sils") is a hockey club based in Solihull, consisting of 6 Men's teams (including a mid-week Veterans team), 3 Ladies' teams and a flourishing juniors section with several representative age group sides and development teams for the transition into adult hockey. We were the first Hockey Club in the country to be awarded the Sport England Clubmark accreditation (known as Club's First
within the hockey world), and are one of the leading clubs in the Warwickshire area to support the Single System
We have a great history of hockey within the Midlands, and in recent times have begun to re-emerge as one of the major forces within grass-roots hockey. Information about Awards and Honours that the club has won recently can be found by clicking here, or using the relevant link on the left hand side.
We currently benefit from using the facilities at our very own astroturf, where currently all our training and home matches take place, which is immediately outside the Silhillians Clubhouse itself and hence is the envy of many local clubs. The Silhillians, situated on the road between Solihull and Knowle, has 2 bars, complete changing and showering facilities, catering on-site, and also the associated facilities for the other sportsclubs (Rugby, Squash, Rifle Shooting, Football, and Croquet). The "Silz" festival, which is hosted at the Silhillians grounds over the August Bank Holiday weekend every year, is the envy of the surrounding area, with over 500 hockey revellers descending upon the site every year, and attendees regularly praising it as the best festival in the country.

OSHC in the Local Community
As a club, we also support hockey within the local community, with every effort made to provide coaches to local schools and host JDC sessions, and we are also the Home of Warwickshire JAC (County) activity, with several of the County managers being members of the club, 3 of the 5 County Boys' squads' coaching being delivered at the Sils.
We also support local schools - if you are from a local school and wish to get in contact to see what we can offer, please click here or use the relevant link on the left.
