(*) Family membership is defined as – One or more parents, of whom at least one should be a senior playing member, plus any children under 18 in the household.
Subscriptions are due on 1 September 2023 and MUST be paid by 31 October 2023. Members, except those in the Minor or Youth categories, whose subscriptions are unpaid by 31 October 2023 will be suspended and not selected until payment has been made. Where more than one minor or youth member is from the same immediate family, a reduction in subscription rate of £10.00 will apply.
ALL playing members, including occasional players (see below), must register on the Hockey Ireland website, under MEMBERSHIP, and pay an annual fee of £9 stg. This is particularly important for new members joining who were not on the Hockey Ireland database last season and do not have a HI membership number. This number is essential for Ulster Hockey registrations. Hockey Ireland registration also includes insurance cover.
Subscriptions to North Down may be paid by:
Electronically directly into our bank account. Sort code 98-04-45, a/c 64788082. Please ensure that your payment can be identified to you. Three or four payments between July – September will spread the load at the discounted rate.
Standing Order. The form is available as a download on this website.
Cash or Cheque. Make your cheque payable to ‘NORTH DOWN HOCKEY CLUB’ and pass the payment to either your team captain or Kathryn Rogers Honorary Treasurer.
We do not operate a ‘pay and play’ system as an alternative to paying a full sub! However. we will consider this option for a senior member who is only able to play occasionally, in which case the match fee payable on the day is £15.00.
There’s a change to the arrangements for youth coaches who must now pay their subscriptions at the start of the season as normal. Each youth category now has a costs budget and appropriate retrospective refunds will be made at the end of the season.
