Club Support Program
Club Support Package Overview
Local Athlete Member - $10
Local Coach Member - $30
- Local Athlete and Coach Members do not have the ability to participate or coach in any USA Field Hockey Regional or National Events or Programs
- If an athlete or coach wants to participate in a National or Regional Event or Program, he/she will need a U-12, U-19, Adult, Coach or Umpire Membership
Club Support Package Benefits for Clubs
- Lower cost for athletes to participate reduces the barrier to entry
- This will help clubs grow and help grow the game
- USA Field Hockey has a new incentive program for clubs to help decrease the cost of the memberships even more
- For every Local Athlete Member that becomes a U-12, U-19, Adult (National) or Local Coach that becomes a National Coach Member will receive the money back that they paid for these members. (i.e., $10.00 per athlete and $30.00 per coach)
- Club Owners will have the peace of mind knowing that their athletes and coaches are covered under Participant Accident Insurance and that their club is covered under General Liability Insurance
- Also, by only requiring that athletes sign a waiver prior to going through a trial or participating in a practice for the first time, USA Field Hockey is also reducing the barrier to entry once again. This will allow athletes to be covered by insurance without having to have a National Membership.
Fees Associated with Local Membership for Clubs
- USA Field Hockey Clubs will pay $10.00 per athlete and $30.00 per coach for the local membership
- USA Field Hockey Clubs will still pay the $295.00 club fee - this covers their General Liability Insurance
- Club Owner/Administrator must be a National Level Coach Member
