Slough Jets are an ice hockey team from Slough, Berkshire, England. They were the English Premier Ice Hockey League (EPIHL) Cup champions for the 2011–12 season. The team was founded in 1986 after the construction of the Slough Ice Arena in Montem Lane in Slough. With the help of Gary Stefan who had previously been with Streatham Redskins the Slough Jets were formed. The Slough Jets are one of the few clubs in the UK who from their foundation have continued to play to the present day without interruption or a change of name. They currently play in the English National Ice Hockey League (NIHL), which is the third tier of UK hockey.[1] The Slough Jets' home rink is the Slough Ice Arena, which is also known as the "Hangar". The Slough Jets also have a thriving junior programme (Slough Junior Jets Academy or SJJA) with under 10s, 12s, 14s (A & B), 16s and 18s teams. Future Oscar winner Gareth Unwin, who produced The King's Speech, once played for the team.

For the season 2011–12 Slough were coached by Doug Sheppard who had joined the club a season earlier as a player.

Slough Jets also run a Slough Jets ENL team which competes ENL League 2, coached by current Jet Adam Greener
