NEW UNIFORMS

Monash Hockey is rolling out new uniforms for the 2019 season (please see piccy for a refresher).

Women’s 1s and 2s, and Men’s 1s, 2s, and 3s – GOOD NEWS – we have your uniform ready to go. Bring $25 (cash or card) to training and see a Committee member to collect and pay for your gear. You will be wearing these on the pitch for Round 1.

Lower grades – you are sticking with the fun ol’ blue uniforms until the next shipment of uniforms arrives.

If you HAVEN’T tried on a uniform, please see a Committee member at training ASAP so we can get you in the funky new silver/blue get-up. You will then need to pop your details in this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/…/1NvFSGiE4zMQtuGhqEP-hSjX2qs…/edit…

REGISTRATION FOR ROUND 1 (i.e. this Saturday!)

NO PAY, NO PLAY policy. If you are not registered, that means you are not insured, so we’re just not going to let you get on the pitch. If you don’t have the money right now, just click the ‘Payment Plan Option’ and email our Treasurers (treasurer@monashhockey.org.au) to pay later.

Step 1: The Hockey Australia Portal – pay a Hockey Australia/Victoria registration fee (2 separate fees totalling $97) AND a Monash University Hockey club membership fee (see flow-chart).

Step 2: The Monash University Portal – This is brand new and super important. It ensures we have access to accurate information and are able to better respond in an emergency. It also ensures that you are fully covered by the Monash Sport insurance.
