Canteen & Umpiring Levy

The canteen raises funds which subsidise your fees. A $50 Canteen Levy has been added on every member’s fees who play U12-U18, seniors & masters competitions. To receive the $50 Levy back, complete a canteen duty and see Karen Johnstone or Sally Walsh.

If you are playing seniors or masters and are 18 years of age or over, FHC membership requires you to pay an umpiring levy (Senior $40, Masters $20) which is already included in your fees. You can earn this money back by umpiring during the season.

Club Song

Sons of the Scray’s (Girls of the West)
Red, white and blue
We’ll come out snarling
Bulldogs through and through
Bulldogs bite and bulldogs roar
We give our very best
Because you can’t beat the boys of the Bulldog breed (girls)
The team of the mighty West

At Footscray Hockey Club we will meet government regulations for sporting clubs and ensure that people who work or engage with children under the age of 18 have a current Working With Children Card.

The following personnel in the Men’s, Women’s & Junior sections require a Working With Children Card (note: the senior section personnel also required a WWCC due to members who are U18 playing seniors).
