Membership

Hockey Burleigh Incorporated has been established since 1967. Hockey Burleigh is a member of Queensland Hockey and Gold Coast Hockey Association. We have long been established as a community driven club with much of our work being performed by dedicated volunteers. We welcome all members to our club regardless of whether they are hockey veterans or amateurs wanting to just have a bit of fun. So please don't hesitate to drop by and join the club.

We play all of our games at the Gold Coast Hockey Association playing felds at Musgrave Ave Labrador. 

At Hockey Burleigh we cater for all ages and experience levels, Cubs, Joeys, U11, U14, Open Juniors and senior grades.

From first timers to Australian representatives, everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the family fun and cameraderie at Hockey Burleigh. 

As well as learning the sport itself, playing hockey is a great way to teach children skills for life, including teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership, along with making a host of friends along the way. 

Hockey Burleigh have many current representative players in Gold Coast, QLD and Australian teams. So why not come down and join one of the most successful, friendly family oriented clubs on the coast.

 

How to Become a Member

Follow these steps to become a Hockey Burleigh member.

 

1. Registration and Payment
2. Deferred Fee Payment

STEP 1 : Registration & Payment

 

Registration with Hockey Queensland (HQ)/Hockey Australia (HA) via the below link registers you with HQ/HA with HB as your nominated club.

 

Payment:

There are two payment options for each membership category.

1. 100% HB Fees (Full Payment)

Includes HQ/HA fees and 100% of your HB membership fee.

If you select the 100% fee option you will be required to pay the HQ/HA and 100% of your HB membership fee at time of checkout via credit card. There will be no further payments required and you will be fully registered with HQ/HA and a fully paid member of Hockey Burleigh.

2. 50% HB Fees (Deferred Payment)

Includes HQ/HA fees and 50% of your HB membership fee and allows deferred payment of 50% of your HB Membership fee 30th April.
If you select the 50% fee option you will be required to pay the HQ/HA and 50% of your HB membership fee at time of checkout via credit card. An invoice for the remaining 50% of your Hockey Burleigh fees will be sent to you once you have registered with HQ/HA. (This may take up to one day to arrive as our treasurer needs to produce it). Note: The 50% balance of your HB membership fee will be due to be paid by 30th April. Of course if members are in a position to pay their fees earlier it would be greatly appreciated. 50% Fee option is not available for Joeys or 10 Game Men=mbership.

Joeys Note:

Joeys also need to register with HQ/HA using the below portal. Unfortunately due to complications in the system we cannot offer 50% deferred payments for Joeys. When you decide to participate in the Saturdays program you will be upgraded to this membership category and invoiced additionally for this.

Dual Club Registrations

If you are a member with another club and want to play with Burleigh as a secondary club you will need to register again with HQ/HA through the Hockey Burleigh registration portal below. The HQ/HA fees will appear in ‘Registration cost’ however the system will realise at checkout that you have already paid with another club and this cost will be cancelled out at the checkout but you will be required to pay the HB membership fee.

Club Transfers

If you have played for another club within the past two years and want to play with Hockey Burleigh you will require a letter of clearance from your previous club. Please email your clearance to our registrar Maureen Fleming registrar@hockeyburleigh.com

Other registration enquiries

If you are unsure what category to register in or, have any questions please email our registrar Maureen Fleming on: registrar@hockeyburleigh.com

 

STEP 2: Deferred Fee Payment

 

If you have chosen the 100% Full Fee Payment option thank you. There is nothing more for you to do than enjoy your season.

If you select the 50% Deferred Payment fee option in 'Step 1' above an invoice for the remaining 50% of your Hockey Burleigh fees will be emailed to you. (This may take up to one day to arrive as our treasurer needs to produce it). Note: The 50% balance of your HB membership fee will be due to be paid by 30th April.

Of course if members are in a position to pay their fees earlier it would be greatly appreciated.

 
 

Important note for 2022 Fees

As we approach the new season the committee have been working behind the scenes to prepare us for another successful season.

 

Unfortunately we have been advised the GCHMG and Gold Coast Hockey Association have had to make the tough decision to significantly increase the fees we pay to register teams, play and train on our world class facility.

 

We understand and accept that the GCHMG and GCHA need to run the facility in a manner that is sustainable and we and all other clubs are in constant talks with them on how we can reduce fees but unfortunately there is no getting around the costs involved in playing hockey on such expensive facilities. 

 

As you may recall we were hit with increases last season which we did not pass on to our members. This season the club are not in a position to absorb these increase and will need to pass them onto our members by way of membership fee increases.

Fees

Seniors: are defined as being 18 and over as at 1st Jan in the year of competition.

Juniors: are 17 or under as at 1st Jan in the year of competition. Even if you are only playing seniors but are under 18 you will register as a junior.

Please note: There is transaction fee of 2% + $1.60 transaction fee applicable to all payments

 

Financial Assistance

Deferred Fee Payment Assistance

 

Hockey Burleigh are aware that some players and families may require financial assistance to pay their fees. We exist as a club for the benefit of our members and in the past we offered Payment Plans over two months to help where necessary.

 

In 2021 we have introduced a new system where 50% of your HB fee is payable at time of registering with the balance being deferred until 30th April.

Whilst we endeavour to help all our members where possible, please understand due to our financial commitments to pay for Turf Hire and Match Fees we cannot extend fee payments past the due date.

If you would like further information please contact our Treasurer Tracey Matthews via email.

Fair Play Assistance Program

 

Fair Play is one of three funding programs that comprise the Queensland Government’s Get in the Game initiative to support sport and recreation at the grassroots level. Fair Play assists children and young people who can least afford, or may otherwise benefit from, joining a sport or recreation club.

Eligible children and young people are provided with a voucher of up to $150 to help pay for club membership and/or participation fees.

The parent, guardian / carer will need to register for a QGrants account through the website and create a user name and password.

If the parent, guardian / carer have a Centrelink card they can complete the application form online without the need to do anything else. If they do not have a Centrelink card they can still apply, but they will need to get two referrals which can be the child’s teacher and principal.

Young Athletes Travel Subsidy (Queensland Government)

The Young Athletes Travel Subsidy (travel subsidy) aims to foster the development of young athletes and support elite athlete pathways by providing financial assistance to help alleviate the costs associated with attending championship events. The travel subsidy provides financial assistance through three event tiers and supports attendance at specific state, national and international events.

Officials (such as coaches, referees and scorers) officiating at eligible events can also apply for assistance if they meet the eligibility criteria.

Who is eligible?

Applicants eligible to apply for support after attending the event are those who:

  • competed or officiated (as a coach, referee or scorer) at an eligible Queensland state or state school event, Australian national or national school event or international event in the past 6 months

  • have been residents of Queensland for at least 12 months preceding the event

  • were under the age of 18 at the start of the event

  • travelled a road distance of at least 250km (one-way) from their place of residence to the event location (check road distances using RACQ’s trip planner)

  • flew or travelled by rail a radial distance of at least 250km (one-way) from their place of residence to the event location (check radial distances)

  • have participation at the event confirmed by the regional/state/national coach or manager.
     

Applications must be correctly submitted within six months of attending the event to be eligible. 

What funding is available?

The travel subsidy will allow up to a maximum of $1,200 in financial assistance over the three event tiers, once every two calendar years. Eligible athletes and officials can apply for one event per tier once every two calendar years.

For example, if an applicant attends a state and international event in 2016, they do not need to wait two years to apply for a national event. Or, if the applicant applies for all three event tiers in 2016 they must wait until 2018 before being eligible again.

The following travel subsidy amounts are available under the three event tiers:

  • state or state school event—$200

  • national or national school event—$400

  • international event—$600.
