Our U18s Team is for players born between 2007 and 2006.


This is hockey with games geared to prepare our players for their next senior hockey steps. Whether that is playing recreational hockey for the love of the game or, for the talented few, senior hockey with the Widnes Wild Senior Team



Our U18s played in the North league for 2022/2023 season and came mid table against some tough opposition.


Games consist of 3 x 20 minute stopping clock periods, lines change on the fly and full body contact.
