2019 - 2020 Summer Hockey

It’s the time of the year again! NIHC will be running a 2019 - 2020 summer hockey season.

As an estimate we expect to start the week commencing MONDAY, 14 OCTOBER 2019 and will run to FRIDAY, 13 DECEMBER 2019. 

Due to planned developments during this time, we cannot guarantee a total number of games played.

We will be running the following competitions:

  1. Mixed;

  2. Womens;

  3. Juniors;

Now is the time to start putting in your team nomination forms.  A nomination form obtained by requesting one from the canteen staff, downloading one from our website, or one can be emailed to you if request one. A team nomination form must be filled out for your team, including: every player’s Date of Birth and if they played during the 2019 winter competition.

 

We also take individual nominations – if you wish to play but do not have a team please submit your details and we will contact teams that are looking for players on your behalf.

TEAM NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

 

Game Fees and Charges

Teams will get billed for turf fees only.  Individual players are responsible for paying their registration fees and each team is responsible for paying an umpire each game they play. In case of washed out games or legitimate forfeits (a team has given 48 hours notice that they are unable to play) then turf fees will not be charged.  These will be taken off the last installment's invoice or refunded if the money has already been paid.

 

These are the estimate fees for the 2019–2020 season:

TURF FEES                               108.00 per team per game

UMPIRE FEES                          $25.00 per team per game

A deposit fee of $108.00 is required to be paid by each team when entering their registration form.  This fee will be taken off the last game for the season.

 

Team Game Costs

Deposit paid (last round game fee) with Team Nomination             $108.00

Season fees (approximately 9 games minus last game deposit)     $864.00

 

We cannot guarantee an exact number of games during the competition due to the planned redevelopments of our Centre during the summer period.

Our aim is for fifteen games and follows the general schedule mentioned below.

This may change by the subtraction of one or two games or the extension of the competition into early March.

This is also why we would ideally like Team Managers to pay the game fees in monthly increments (as per our invoices) as to guarantee the total number of games played.

Competition Schedule

October          3 games

November      4 games

December    2 game

 

Player Fees and Charges

REGISTRATION FEES - 2019 winter competition player       

$25.00 per player

REGISTRATION FEES – non 2019 winter competition players

$25.00 per player + $60.31 (Adult) or 39.90 (Under 18) to Hockey NSW (online)*

*Registration through Hockey NSW is not available yet for players who did not play during the winter season.

 

 

Competitions

All competitions are running from 6:00pm on the night of your competition.

 

WOMENS

This competition will run on Mondays and Tuesdays.  You must be 13 years of age to play in this competition.

Please note:

Please request your day preference first, and then your grade. We will split the nominated teams into grades which we believe are the most appropriate, so there may be two or three grades per night.

 

MIXED

This competition will run on Thursdays and Fridays.  You must be 15 years of age to play in this competition.

Please note:

Please request your day preference first, and then your grade. We will split the nominated teams into grades which we believe are the most appropriate, so there may be two or three grades per night.

 

JUNIORS

These competitions will run on Wednesday afternoons. 

Although it will largely depend on numbers, we hope to run a full competition plus training classes for kids which may want to be doing Hookin2Hockey over the summer period.

Umpires for the Summer Season

Every year the same fantastic people put their hands up to help everyone out to umpire games throughout the week.  

However we are always on the lookout for more umpires to help cover games.

Womens and mixed competition umpires are paid $25.00 per game while those umpiring juniors are paid $15.00 per game.

If you are interested in umpiring in this upcoming summer season for womens, mixed or juniors then we would love to hear from you. 

Please contact the office on 4952 8899 or nihcduty@newcastlehockey.com.au.
