Streatham (formerly Streatham Redskins) are a British ice hockey club based in Streatham, London, England. Amongst the oldest British ice hockey teams still in existence, they were oginally founded in 1932 as Streatham, and added the name Redskins in 1974. During the 1980s, the club were one of the leading teams in the British Hockey League, their biggest rivals being the Nottingham Panthers. By the end of the 1980s, however, the club's fortunes were in decline and they were relegated from the Premier Division in 1989.

In modern times, the club competes in the developmental NIHL South Division 1, where they finished runners-up to the Invicta Dynamos in the 2006/07 & 2007/2008 season. In the 9/10 season the team were 7th, in 10/11 5th, 11/12 9th, 12/13 7th, 13/14 5th, 14/15 3rd and 15/16 5th.

In more recent years the club was forced to move from the iconic ice rink on Streatham High Road, which was demolished, to a temporary rink in Brixton before moving back to a brand new ice arena on the High Road.

During the 15/16 season the club formalised a decision that had been on the cards for some time by deciding to drop the Redskins part of the name. This tricky decision was met with enormous support from the ice hockey community and many fans who rallied behind the club in search of a new name, the press release making the national newspapers and sporting press. The name will be decided during the off season during the summer of 2016.
