Individual Registration/Player Insurance

While we know most participants in these competitions also partake in the winter season and therefore are covered for insurance under the Hockey Australia Levy, there are a number of new participants who will be looking to sign up for the summer season.

New players will need to register through our club website and choose the relevant Summer/Indoor category to pay the appropriate levy fee. ($27.50 for seniors/$22.50 for juniors : https://www.freohockey.com/registration/ choose the appropriate new or returning button)

Please note: If members are registering for a summer/indoor competition that starts before 31/12/23, you will be covered for the remainder of that competition. If the summer/indoor competition starts in 2024, you will have to pay the full HA Levy fee for 2024. Remembering that it will cover you for a full calendar year, so you will have access to other competitions and services in that time (i.e. 2024 Winter season, 2024 Summer/Indoor season).
