Match fees

Match fees are collected by the captain after the match, please make every effort to pay your captain on time especially if you are leaving immediately after the match.  If for some reason you end up playing more than one game per day, then you are only due to pay one set of match fees, please inform the captain of your second match that this is the case.

Match levy (Adult, Associate) £12
Match levy (Young Adult) £8
Match levy (Junior playing adult hockey) £8

How and When do I pay my annual subs?

Membership registration is online.  New members can refer to a registration e-mail they will have been sent and new members can click on the ‘Sign Up’ button at the top right of the website homepage.  Once signed up members can re-access their registration details by clicking on ‘Log On’.  The registration process will give details on how to pay.  Annual subscriptions are due at the start of the season – 1st September – or, for new members, upon election.  Subscriptions can be paid up to the end of December, but for each month past September the fee will increase.  Late payment of annual subscriptions will result in the member being barred from playing until the arrears are cleared or, in some cases, expulsion from the Club.

If anyone has any difficulty with paying the fees due to unemployment or other circumstances they can discuss this in confidence with the club Treasurer who will try to come to some arrangement, sometimes in return for some volunteering time at the club.  You can also pay your subscriptions through direct debit, to do this please complete the attached form (in Forms) and give it to either your team captain or the relevant membership secretary.  There is a slight premium for paying by direct debit.
