Streatham Ice Hockey Club (formerly Streatham Redskins) is a British ice hockey club based in Streatham, London, England. Amongst the oldest British ice hockey teams still in existence, they were 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.

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, placed 5th in 10/11, 9th in 11/12, 7th in 12/13, 5th in 13/14, 3rd in 14/15 and 5th in 15/16.

The club was forced to move from the ice rink on Streatham High Road (which was demolished) and into a temporary rink in Brixton before establishing itself in a brand new ice arena back on the High Road.

During the 2015/16 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.

During the closed season, fans, players and management voted on a new name for the club and it was decided that the club would be known as Streatham Ice Hockey Club, keeping it simple and staying true to the roots of the club. However a nick name was to be added and therefore a second vote was carried out over the summer with the public being able to choose from the four most popular suggestions from the original vote.
