Part Two: Grange Royals – subscription fees are to be paid directly to the club to avoid an additional percentage charge through the online portal.

 

The Management Committee is mindful of cost increases and have minimised the increase of club fees charges for 2019. Senior players have until April 30th to make payment at the reduced rate. Junior players have until May 31st to make payment at the reduced rate. Club fees not paid prior June 30th will attract a late payment fee of $60.00. Members are not eligible to play after July 31st if payment has not been receipted or an agreed arrangement is in place prior.

 

Sports Discount Vouchers (one per child) are accepted for children up to Year Seven. Return your completed voucher to your team manager to submit for processing and the fees are discounted up to $100 or to the value of the fees.

Members are encouraged to pay their fees by the method which is most convenient to them. The options available are;

  • Direct Transfer - Commonwealth Bank: BSB:065-008; Account Number:10035492; Reference:Surname, Initial, Grade
  • Cash: the Office letterbox slot
  • EFTPOS: at the Club
  • Cheques: made out to Grange Royals Hockey Club Inc.  

Each game day managers collect a match fee to cover the charge for use of the ground where you play. This varies at each location due to the type of turf and ranges from $10-$15 per player. U11 is a lesser charge and U9 there is no charge.

 

Training Levy

As was the case last year, there is a training levy for players this year. This was introduced to cover increasing costs in a more equitable way across our players. There is a long history associated with this concept, with this levy being a part of overall player costs on and off over a number of years. Dave Edwards, our President, would be very happy to share these details with anyone who has any queries.

 

The levy is due for all players with the exception of Under 9. The Premier League players training levy is $100.00. The remaining players’ levy is $50.00. Please note players are only required to pay 1 levy; that being for the highest grade they play & this levy is not payable at the start of the season. Details regarding payment timeline and process will be shared at a later date.

 

Grange Royals Holiday Raffle – Training Levy Offset Option

We acknowledge the training levy is an additional expense incurred by players. To offset this, offering an alternative to paying the levy, the club will run a travel raffle that provides the option of selling raffle books instead. A book contains 20 tickets @ $3.00 each.

 

Premier League players will have two books each. Metro 2, 3, 4, 5, Masters and junior players will have one book each.

 

Distribution of raffle books takes into consideration players playing in multiple teams. Where families have a significant number of family members playing, if you have concerns regarding the manageability of raffle book numbers please discuss these with Dave Edwards, our President.

Uniforms

Kaye is our Uniform Coordinator. For any uniform queries or orders please email the completed form (located on the website) to: uniforms@grangeroyals.org.au

 

Club Duty Obligations

Each team are allocated duties (bar, kitchen, umpiring) throughout the season. The team manager will advise the dates applicable to your team(s). Bar and kitchen duty are generally twice a season on a Saturday evening and once midweek a season. These club evenings assist with fund raising for club expenses. They are also an integral part of the great atmosphere and club spirit at Grange Royals.

 

Umpiring is generally a once off scheduled duty or pay someone to do your duty for you. Failure to fulfill the allocated umpiring duty will attract a penalty.

 

Communications

With the 2019 hockey season upon us, what better way to keep up with what is going on with fixtures, results, club information and upcoming events than with Team App. Download Team App to get the Weekly Newsletter that includes the weekend game wrap up, member profile and special events or announcements. Please note that you will need to make sure the App has updated from last year to enable you to access this year’s information.

 

We also encourage Players and Supporters to follow us on Facebook and look to our webpage for specific information.

 

Club Saturday Nights

The club is open most Saturday nights during the season. The first night we will be open for meals and drinks this year is Saturday 5th April.

 

Our weekly raffles, team dinners and Supporters Club Draw will continue to be a key part of Saturday nights.

All the best for a great season ahead,

GRHC Committee
