Important note for 2021 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 Gold Coast Hockey Management Group have had to make the tough decision to significantly increase the fees we pay to play and train on our world class facility.
Without boring you with the full breakdown, this increase being charged to Hockey Burleigh for us to play and train equates to $45 per player for the season. We understand and accept that the GCHMG need to run the facility in a manner that is sustainable and as they have not had an increase in two seasons they need to increase the fees more than they or anyone else would like.
The club are not in a position to absorb this increase and will need to pass it onto our members by way of fee increases but we feel that a $45 increase in one year is not something we want to impose on our members.
The committees primary concern is with our members and we feel that a $45 increase is too great to pass on to you in one year.
We have decided not to pass on the full $45 increase this season but will stager the increase over the 2021 and 2022 seasons.
Fees will increase by $30 across all membership categories (excluding Joeys) in 2021 and we will need to again unfortunately increase fees in the 2022 season to make up the shortfall along with any further increases the GCHMG may or may not impose in 2022
To assist members accommodate this fee increase we have changed the way fees are due to be paid in 2021 and introduced a 50% deferred payment option. Please see details in "Step1 Registration & Payment" below for further details.
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 online payments
How to Become a Member
Follow these steps to become a Hockey Burleigh member.
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.
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Other registration enquiries
If you are unsure what category to register in or, have any questions please email our registrar Maureen Fleming on: email@example.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.
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.
Get Started Assistance Program
Get Started 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. Get Started 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.
NOTE: When you receive your getting started voucher please email it to our registrar on

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
