Membership

Over the past few years Hockey Burleigh has lost a significant amount of money as a result of players failing to pay their fees. This failure to pay by a small minority of mostly transient players is adversely affecting those who do pay fees on time.

This year we will be enforcing a strict NO PAY NO PLAY policy.

 

NO PAY NO PLAY

SO SIGN ON TODAY!

 

We have set the fees early to allow you as much time as possible to prepare, we have also made Payment Plans available to assist members where necessary. For details about Payment Plans click here.

 

This NO PAY NO PLAY policy has been put in place to ensure all players are paying their way. Please understand, due to our financial commitments to pay for Turf Hire and Match Fees we cannot allow unfinancial players to play.

 

Thank you for your understanding in this regard.

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 online payments

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.

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

Financial Assistance

 

Hockey Burleigh Fee Payment Plans

 

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 so we have introduced Payment Plans to help where necessary.

Unfortunately due to limitations in the registration system HQ/HA fees cannot be added to a payment plan and must be paid at time of registration.

Hockey Burleigh Payment Plans will enable members to pay off their Hockey Burleigh fees over three equal monthly payments.
 

  • Payment Plans need to be entered into with the first payment being made prior to selection of teams for the first round of the season.

  • Second Instalment to be paid prior to 5th April.

  • Final Instalment to be paid prior to 5th May.

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 Payment Plans past the above dates.

If you would like to enter into a Payment Plan 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.

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.
