Registration for the 2016/17 Season
For the 2016/17 season we have implemented a new online registration and membership management tool, PaySubsOnline. New and existing members are asked to register on the system using the link below, following which payment will be requested.
EVERY Player age 18 and under as of 1st September 2016 must have an online registration form completed by a parent or guardian. A parent or guardian must also register. Registration and consent is a requirement of England Hockey to whom we are affiliated and is also necessary for insurance purposes.
See full information here on our Club Information Section of the Website:
Thank you in advance.
How to pay
PaySubsOnline will deliver a membership database and a convenient and secure payment mechanism for an additional 3% charge. It is GHC's preferred payment method as it minimises the time Club Volunteers spend on administration and maximises their efforts on the delivery of GHC Social and Coaching activities - please use online payment through PSO.
If members are unable or unwilling to use the online payment facility, it is possible to pay by electronic fund transfers using BACS (details below). Please use your name as a reference and notify by email Mark Lenel (Treasurer) to allow him to record your payment. Cheques are longer be accepted.

Junior Subscription and Match Fees
Junior Member Subscription Fees
Please note a necessary condition of GHC Junior Membership is that at least one parent/guardian is required to be a GHC Adult Member (Social or Playing). Playing Membership information is above; Social Membership is £20.
- £160 for a player in the U12+ junior player in a family (includes age 11 -18)
- £150 for a player in the U10 age group (includes age 9 and 10)
- £90 for a player in the U8 age group
Junior Match Fees
Match fees are payable only for EH Cup and Premier League matches (both competitions' rules require a match tea and the match fee is to cover the cost). The teams affected are the top team of the Under 14, 16 and 18 squads.
We have reviewed the overall cost, including the £0 match fee for the large majority of the Junior Section, as compared to other local hockey clubs and to other organised sport that children play. Your child has access to about 30 training sessions during the season and most players will play in between 10 and 30 matches. On a per session basis, it is difficult to offer better value.
For any subscription or match fee related questions, please email our treasurer,
or phone 07790 023570.
Juniors Training and Playing with Adult Teams
Club policy is for Junior Players to play in their age group. Some of our older Junior players will benefit from and enjoy the challenge of playing with our various Men's and Ladies' teams. England Hockey policy (and therefore Club policy) requires a Junior player to be at least 13 years old to play in adult matches (15 for England Hockey Leagues).
It is important for parents to be aware of the differences between Junior and Adult hockey. We therefore require parents of all Junior players who would like to participate in Adult training sessions and matches to read the information about Juniors playing adult hockey and to consent to their playing taking part.
The necessary consent is now part of the online member registration process in PSO. A member's details are a live record can be updated by parents during the season as required to give consent.

England Hockey and the Girls and Boys Leagues all work to a system of two year age groups. We prefer to keep players in their correct age group. There are exceptional circumstances, particularly in the very young squads as players are learning and developing at different rates.
There are strict rules, however, in League and Cup competitions that require players to stick to their age groups. When players are ready and it will help their development, they can play with our adult teams (more information below).
Please note that the England Hockey Single System (JDC, JAC, JRPC, NAGS) runs on calendar year birthdates. Players with a birthdate between 1 Sep and 31 Dec will be in a different age group for the Single System (County, Regional, National selection) than for the Club/League system.
