Fees 2018

PLEASE NOTE: Hockey Australia are increasing their 2018 affiliation fees between $15-25 to assist with growth of our sport. We also expect increases from NSW and FNC so total increases will be greater than those figures. We will advertise 2018 fees asap but prepare for the increase and start budgeting for it now.

What you get for your fees

Annual registration fees

Ballina Hockey Club attempts to keep fees as low as possible.

  • Hockey NSW levy covers the governance of hockey across NSW, organisation and running of state championships (junior, seniors and masters) and most importantly, your sports insurance cover.
  • Far North Coast Hockey Association’s levy covers governance and running of the far north coast hockey competition.
  • Ballina Hockey Club’s levy covers turf training costs, support of representative players, junior development, end of season trophies, first aid supplies, equipment, advertising and everything else in between to keep the Club running.

Game fees

  • In addition to annual registration fees, players (seniors and juniors) are also required to play turf game fees at each match – around $10 or less per game (depending on the number of players in your team).
  • Levies raised from game fees go towards the running and maintenance costs of the Ballina Hockey and Sports Complex (a separate entity to Ballina Hockey Club) which includes the turf, canteen, club house, bar, water, floodlights, ground maintenance and security.

Fees policy

Fees are to be paid prior to the first game of the season. If no funds received, a player can not take the field and may be withdrawn from registration.

Explanatory notes *

associate (non playing officials) – covers our non playing officials such as coaches, team managers, umpires and others involved with the Club. This enables non playing officials an entitlement to a voice and a vote at Club meetings and covers you for insurance around the turf. Fees are kept to a nominal fee as our non playing officials give their time and commitment to the Club.
