UMPIRE DEVELOPMENT
This season we hope to really move ahead with our development of umpires (children and adults) for our junior section. All umpires will be receiving a Fox 40 whistle, rule book, warning cards, score book and pen from the Club, and we will have mentors attending games to give advice and support.

Umpiring is a fantastic skill to develop, and we encourage all players and parents to consider “giving it a go”. We’ll get you well trained and moving along the path towards formal qualifications. Please contact Mel Sanders if you are interested at juniors@footscrayhockey.com.au

MOUTHGUARDS
Mouthguards are compulsory at our Club, both during matches and all training sessions. There are a variety of guards available through HOCKEY HQ. We also partner with Dentaguard to provide professionally moulded mouthguards.

Dentaguard Mouthguard Fitting Dates at Footscray Hockey Club:

  • Tuesday 17th March 2020 5pm – 7pm onwards

Starting from $65 (for smaller children) and starting from $85 (for larger children – adults), you pay EFT or cash on the night of the fitting. 

Also all children under 18 years will need to have a consent form signed before the impression is taken. There is a 10-14 day turn around and mouthguards will be available for pick up at the club from Kate de la Mere at your training session

Receipts can also be provided for health insurance claims. Most health insurance companies provide between 60-100% return for Dentaguard products. 

Please note there is no booking system this year, names will be taken in order of arrival.

 

CLUB CULTURE
We take creating a positive and encouraging culture seriously. We have a member protection officer, who has the job of making sure any issues dealt with by an independent official.

https://footscrayhockey.com.au/members-info/ under MEMBER PROTECTION

This year, we will be rewarding teams (the players, officials and supporters) that create positive environments.
