Coventry Phoenix are a Coventry's female ice hockey team. The team was established in 2003, and currently competes in Division One (North) of the British Women's Leagues.[1] They play out of the SkyDome Arena, in city centre Coventry, the same venue as the Coventry Blaze men's professional ice hockey teams.

History[edit]

The Phoenix had their best season ever in 2013/14 finishing runners up to Whitley Bay. They made their first appearance at the women's playoffs in Sheffield losing 1-0 to the eventual winner, Swindon Top Cats, in the Semi Final. They then beat Cardiff to finish on 3rd place overall.

The Club ran a series of free "Learn to Play" sessions, providing loanable kits, in the summer of 2014.
