I should then register as a dual member at senior Club Z $0
I play seniors at Club Y and masters at Club Z
I should register as an adult at senior club Y and select the $65 membership
I should then register as a dual member at masters Club Z $0
- HV 2017 Non-Playing Membership $0 For coaches, team managers, umpires etc. who are not playing.

2. FOOTSCRAY HOCKEY CLUB REGISTRATION & FEE PAYMENT
Every person who wishes to participate in any competition run by the Footscray Hockey Club, including the U6’s, U8’s and U10’s Intra Club programs must register via the FHC online registration process. It is important that every person is registered separately as there are no linked options within this system.
Throughout this form, members will be asked questions about contact information, emergency contacts, canteen allocations and the type of club registration being selected.
Your online registration will not be recorded until after your fee payment via debit or credit card at the end.
Click here for information on Club Fees.
Throughout the year the canteen raises funds, which help to subsidise every member’s fees. FHC membership requires you (or your parents) to undertake a canteen duty OR pay the required opt out of canteen duty fee of $100 per player. In the FHC Registration form you can select the opt out option and it will add the $100 fee to your fees to pay at the end of registration.
If you selected to complete your canteen duty, please click here to nominate your preferred date and time on our online Canteen Roster System “Sign Up”. If you do not select a time on “Sign Up”, the Canteen Manager will send you a reminder or roster you in to an available timeslot. Failure nominate a time on Volunteer Spot by season end will automatically incur a $150 charge to be paid prior to your next game. Failure to turn up without notice you will automatically incur a $150 charge to be paid prior to your next game.
If you are playing seniors and are 18 years of age or over, FHC membership requires you to pay an umpiring levy of $40 when you register, this has been included in the relevant fees. The Men’s & Women’s Umpire Coordinators have been instructed to arrange paid umpires for EVERY senior game for EVERY grade. If you’d like to earn your $40 back (or more if you umpire more games), then please tick the relevant box in the registration form and the Umpire Coordinators will be in touch with you.
