Glebe Men in 2017

Welcome to returning members, new members and prospective members to the Glebe District Hockey Club Men's page.

Although we pride ourselves on the support and nurturing of players at club level, many have gone on to higher state & national honours including representing Australia at the Olympic Games.
 
Glebe is one of the oldest hockey clubs in Sydney and will be celebrating its 87th year in 2017. Last year, the club fielded 5 Senior Men's teams. The club caters for players of all abilites, skill level and has always welcomed the addition of new players. The Club has an excellent social scene with many functions held thoughout the year.

Glebe DHC - Playing Fee's 2017

Full Playing Fees

 $560

Student Fees

$390 

Goal Keeper Fees

 $200

Junior Fees

 $290

Note: Fees must be paid in full by 30th June 2017. As always anyone having trouble paying their fees on time please discuss you situation with any member of the Management Committee or the Club Captains.

The above new fee structure represents a small increase on last year and still includes $20 for the club end of year 200 club fundraiser raffle. This fundraiser will again be conducted over the last 5-6 weeks of the competition with the major prizes drawn on presentation night.

Why are the fees the way they are?
It costs a lot to play hockey in Sydney, with turf costs, insurance and umpiring fees. The Glebe District Hockey Club have made a conscious effort to keep the fees as low as possible in light of the current economic climate. Glebe Hockey has found that these numbers are the lowest possible figures the club could ask from its players.

Glebe Hockey also have a policy that junior players (U/11, U/13 and U/15) do not pay fees. Junior costs are covered by the senior members of the club (via fund raisers, 200 club raffle, bar takings and sponsorship etc). This is a part of Glebe Hockeys commitment to juniors and junior development.

How does it compare to other clubs?
One of our closest clubs is charging their players close to $850 for the season, so we feel the Glebe prices are very good, especially considering we support the juniors. Glebe is the only club in Sydney that allows its juniors to play for free. Glebe remains one of the cheapest clubs to play for, Men and women in Sydney

Do I have to pay all at once?
No, you do not need to pay all at once. You must however pay a $200 deposit before even setting foot on the field this season. No pay = No play. You can work out a payment plan with the Club Captain at any training or trial games. In saying that, you save money if you pay all at once, so it can be good to get it out of the way! We ask, as per previous years, that you please pay your fees by Electronic/Direct Deposit to the club bank account:

National Australia Bank
BSB: 082356
Account: 466231070
Account Name: Glebe District Hockey Club

Please ensure you record your name in the transaction details, so that we know who has paid.

Cheques are to be made out to 'Glebe District Hockey Club'

For those who coached a junior side in 2016, please note you are eligible for a discount on your fees, but please refer this to the attention of the Mens or Womens Club Captain. Do not assume you will receive, please have the courtesy to enquire first about what amount we can subsidise you.

THE GLEBE TEAM SONG

(Written by Colin Rochester)

 

1, 2, 3 The Glebe Boys are we

4, 5, 6 We'll hit 'em with our sticks

7, 8, 9 We'll do it all the time

10, 11, 12 We'll win the comp as well.

If you believe, what I believe, the copper said to me

If you're one of the Glebe Boys, you better come with me

He grabbed me by the collar, he tried to run me in

I put up my fists, and knocked him stiff,

And that was the end of him, HEY!

And that was the end of him, HEY!

And that was the end of him HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
