Waterford Hockey Club are running a dedicated ‘Membership Registration’ evening on Friday 13th September 2019, 6:30pm to 8:30pm, at Newtown School hockey pitch.
We encourage all academy, youth and senior members to register on the night to facilitate administration. Registration forms will be emailed to all existing members in advance. Forms will also be available for completion on the night or are available to download on the ‘About WHC / Forms’ page.
* Please ensure all sections of the registration form are completed. Forms will not be accepted if they are not signed by all relevant parties. While membership payment will be accepted on the night, the primary focus is data collection.
* Hockey Ireland have recently introduced a National Membership Registration Programme. All existing club members throughout Ireland were issued with a Hockey Ireland member registration number. You may have received this by email from Hockey Ireland in early 2019. If you do not know your member registration number we can provide this to you at the ‘Membership Registration’ evening.
* So Hockey, our hockey sportwear and equipment partner, will also be present on the night should you want to purchase any hockey items.
All membership fees are strictly due by Thursday 31st October 2019.
A strict ‘no pay no play’ policy will apply after this date.
