Our club is passionate about value for money and making sure you understand why we charge what we do. We are a non-profit organisation, a Community Interest Company (CiC) that aims to deliver quality and increase participation in hockey. Any profits made from any activity, is put back into the club to support our activities.
Over the past few years we have seen a significant increase in our pitch and coaching costs, mainly due an increase in participant numbers. Our endeavour to support coaches with qualifications, the right equipment and enough pitch space has led to an increase across the board.
It important to remember services we have brought to the club for the First team are also available to all our members and that includes the Physiotherapy service which players can book to use on a Wednesday evening.
From August 2017, all subscriptions will include all training, match shirts and match fees, so there will be no more additional payments for players, unless there is an organised trip abroad, a club dinner or special club event or a hotel is required for a competition final.
Based on our market research across clubs in other parts of the country, we still rank as excellent value for money. All our squads, have qualified coaches, first aiders and managers present for what we do and we play and train on some of the best facilities in the county.
We have opportunities for players to offset costs by supporting as a junior coach or umpire and this enables players to commit to hockey activities with no financial burden, providing they can support the club elsewhere.
Players can also obtain sponsorship from outside companies, this will also offset their costs.
