Membership Options 2019-20

Wrist Bands


The Club has approved the new membership rates for the 2019/20 season.  This year sees a 2% increase all membership categories except the Junior Academy and U18 Membership which see a £1 increase to £200 after the substantial rise last season to reflect the new Academy structure.

Key highlights:

  • we have retained the Special Offers for new Senior Members over the age of 22 years and players over 30 years old (male and female) coming 'Back to Hockey.'
  • we have included the option to play Senior Hockey for those aged 13 and over within the new Junior Academy fee.
  • students who pay in full before 1 Oct will receive a 15% discount.
  • we are continuing with the Final Year Student rate to encourage student members in their final year to keep playing for us while getting ready for their final exams - the membership rate reflects the fact they may need to miss some matches.
  • we are continuing with the special membership rates for Goalkeepers playing Senior Hockey to reflect the additional cost of goalkeeping kit.  (Junior Academy Goalkeepers in the U14 through U18 age groups will receive a discount on their membership fees). 


In August each year, current members will receive an automated email asking them if they want to re-register for the new season.  You can either re-register or de-register by clicking a link.  If you re-register but wish to be in a different membership category to last season, please make sure you change your 'Preferred Membership Category' and contact your Membership Secretary, or you will be charged for the same membership category as last season.  All returning members must re-register by 25 September annually. 


Once you have re-registered, you must ensure that you set up payment instructions on your My Account.

Full details about how to pay are here: How to Pay.  

You must set up your direct debit payment instructions by 1 Oct annually (or 15 Sep for Junior Academy) OR paid in full by 31 Oct annually (or 15 Sep for Junior Academy - for JA members, both deadlines are the same) or you will be charged a higher fee and / or be barred from playing.
