Seahorses Youth Registration and Covid Procedures

Registration and Payment Process

This season we are introducing an online automated registration and payment system which will make the process of registering and paying much simpler. Only electronic payments will be accepted. We have also decided to bring our rates into line with other hockey clubs and still be delivering outstanding value for 30 weeks of coaching through the year. The rates are attached in a spreadsheet. Covid continues to cast its shadow over all our activities and the new registration system will make keeping track of kids, coaches and parents for the purpose of contact tracing easier and more robust.

DUE TO COVID PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR CHILD CANNOT PLAY UNTIL HE/SHE IS REGISTERED

The new rates are split by age category. You will notice that you can now pay either upfront or by a monthly payment. Please note that if you want your child to have a trial for a few weeks you must still register and sign up to a monthly payment. We can cancel this monthly payment should you not wish to continue.

We are also offering a sibling discount which you can choose for any additional children you choose to register.

THERE ARE LIKELY TO BE LIMITED PLACES AVAILABLE ON THE PITCH DUE TO COVID SO PLEASE REGISTER EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT

You can register your child by using the following link to our Team Fee Pay account

Covid will be putting a strain on our coaching and administration resources. We therefore need your help, parents, with tasks such as Covid-checking the players on a check-list before each session. When registering you will also notice that there is a question “Would you like to volunteer with CLUB? Yes or NO?” If you would like to volunteer then choose YES.

As well as registering for the season, before each session, we will require each attendee to register their is attendance on the https://covid.oqlist.co.uk/register/intro app. This applies to parents who wish to attend and watch in a socially distanced manner from the terraces as well as players.

Coaching Team

On the brighter side of things, there are several important developments this year. GB International star Mark Gleghorne is taking up an appointment as Director of Hockey at RBAI which will bring inspiration and know-how into school hockey. We are hopeful that Mark will be able to help out with Instonians Youth Coaching through the season. We will also be recruiting a paid technical coach to work with older age-groups to advance their development.

 

Team KIT

We have decided to stay with the same Kit as last year. The link to buy shirts, shorts and rain tops can be found on the Instonians website or you can go directly to the Teamwear website via the following link:

https://www.teamwearireland.com/instonians-hockey-youth-academy-2019-1354-c.asp

As we have to bulk buy the skorts and the socks please contact Andrew Agnew on 07801672566. Socks are £6 per pair and a skort costs £20.

 

Tour Trip

Over the last 2 years we have been able to arrange a day trip to Dublin and last year a full tour to Barcelona. It is our intention to arrange another tour this year if at all possible. We will be looking at taking a few teams on an overnight trip to Dublin or even UK at the end of the season. This is obviously very dependent on what the Covid regulations allow us to do.

New Membership Payment System

A number of members have been asking about an email that they have received from Instonians < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it > regarding an invite for them to join a particular Instonians membership catagory.  If you recall in your annual membership letter sent out by David Rainey in July, the club is transitioning from a BACS payment system to a more modern electronic payment system.  This invite is just asking for you to click on a link in order to confirm your details on the gocardless payments platform.  IT IS SAFE TO DO SO.  Can you please do this at your earliest convenience.

If you are a member and you have not received your email, can you please check your junk mail folders as we have heard reports of some email clients rejecting the emails as junk.  It would also then be prudent for you to add the email address above or better still gocardless.com domain to your safe senders list.

Should you have any problems please contact the membership secretary Sharon Crossan

 
PRE SEASON PITCH/TERRACING TIDY UP

In preparation for the forthcoming season we are having a pitch tidy up on Monday evening.
This is necessary work to remove the weeds etc on the pitch tarmac and terrace area.
The more club volunteers we have the easier the job will be.
Please don't leave it to the old hands lets have as many players as possible involved.
If you have a spade, shovel, hoe and a garden brush then please bring them with you, a blower may also be of help.
So 7.00pm on Monday evening please give us your support.
