Introduction Edit

The Eagles were formed in 2003 and are an Ice hockey club that caters primarily to university players. They accept players from any higher education institution in Scotland.

They have two University teams; with the A teams competing in the Division 1 Northern Conference of the BUIHA, and the B team (known as the Beagles) competing in challenge matches throughout the season. Both teams enter the annual BUIHA National Championships, with the Eagles entering Div 1 and the Beagles Div 3. The Eagles are also the sister club of the Edinburgh Phoenix who play and compete as part of the Scottish Ice Hockey Recreational Conference.
