LOCKDOWN REDUCTIONS

Although the lock down came close to the end of the season, Juniors in 19-20 missed out on their Summer Term of Sunday morning hockey. This term is relatively short but nevertheless an important part of our hockey year. In recognition of this and understanding that these times are difficult for many, the Management Committee have agreed that the Juniors will able to apply a 10% reduction on their Junior Fees when renewing their membership this season, 20-21. We hope this offer is well received but also we hope you do not mind us suggesting that, to those who can, please consider donating the reduction back to the Club by paying the full Subs in the normal way. This will allow for funds to be built up and invested for the future of Southgate Hockey Club.

Question: What do I pay if I am playing regularly in an adult teams?

Pay your adult fees which will cover membership, adult & junior games and training.

Question: What do I pay if I am playing occasionally in adult teams?

Pay your junior membership and fees and individual match fees will be collected for adult games.

Equipment

We recommend everyone wears shin pads and a gum shield. We have these available to buy in our shop which is open on some Sundays, advertised in advance. Most players have their own sticks, but we have a supply for those that don’t. Players should wear comfortable sports gear and trainers, not studs.

We have a coaching team working under John, looking after the individual squads and an army of helpers and junior coaches.
