Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the role of the Team Coordinator?
A: The Team Coordinator should act as the single point of contact with the competition organisers e.g. they will disseminate information about game times to their team members. Having contact details of all team members handy is highly recommended. They should also collect money and pay the registration fee on behalf of the team.

Q: When and where should I pay the registration fees?
A: Registration fees should be paid at the Warwick Hockey Centre canteen by the Team Coordinator. Teams have the option of paying on the day of each game or all up front (cash or EFTPOS accepted).

  • Pre-Juniors – $400 total or $45 per week
  • Families – $400 total or $45 per week
  • Open Mixed Juniors – $450 total or $50 per week
  • Open Mixed Seniors – $450 total or $50 per week
  • Masters – $900 total or $100 per week

Q: Can I change members of my team during the course of the competition?
A: Of course. Fees are charged by team and any particular payment arrangements between team members are the responsibility of the team (and not the club).

Q: What if I can’t arrange for an Umpire for our scheduled slot? (Applies only to Families, Open Mixed Juniors and Seniors)
A: We will publish a list of available standby umpires whom you will need to contact directly to umpire for you. All umpires will be paid $20 per game.

Q: Do we have to pay for Umpires separately?
A: No. The cost of Umpires is included in the Team Registration fees.

Q: We’ve got a range of ages and playing abilities in our team. Can you provide any additional guidance on what category we should enter?
A: The age restrictions in the different playing categories should be used as general guidance however as the overriding intent is for all players to have fun and to be able to play socially with friends and family, it is expected that there will be exceptions to the rule e.g. older/more capable juniors may consider playing in Mixed Seniors. Dangerous or aggressive play particularly towards younger players will not be tolerated.

Q: The flyer states that games in the various playing categories will be played over multiple days/times. Can we nominate to play only on a particular day/time?
The exact days and times of all the games will only be known once registrations have closed and we know how many teams we have to schedule. If you have a particular preference or limitation please note this in the comments section of the registration form and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

Q: What facilities are available in the event of a medical emergency?
A: The Warwick Hockey Centre carries only very basic emergency response equipment e.g. first aid-kit, stretcher, defibrillator. Players should ensure that they have any necessary prescription medicines with them at all times.

Q: Will I be covered by insurance in case of any accidents?
The Whitford Hockey Club pays insurance premiums for winter season junior and senior players registered with the club on Sports TG as part of a wider Hockey WA policy. This covers those players for the whole year for any hockey activity, however it is very limited as it doesn’t cover any costs where a Medicare refund is available.

Note that because Pre-Junior (Hin2H) participants don’t need to register on SportsTG they will not be covered for injury under the Hockey WA policy.

Other Hockey Clubs may have similar arrangements for its members so it is recommended that you check what they are if this situation applies to you.

If someone plays Summer Hockey only then they would not be registered for insurance purposes, and should either ensure that they have private medical insurance or else be prepared to rely on the Medicare system.

Team Coordinators will be responsible for maintaining emergency contact details for their players in the event of an accident.

Q: What happens in the event that my game gets cancelled due to bad weather?
A: The organisers will endeavor to reschedule the game however it should be recognized that this may not be possible in every situation. Refunds will only be considered in extraordinary circumstances.

Q: What happens in the event that a team forfeits?
A: The organisers will endeavor to reschedule individual games that cannot be played however it should be recognized that this may not be possible in every situation. In the event that a team can no longer participate, the overall schedule may have to be amended, however care will be taken to minimize any disruption to the other teams. Refunds will only be considered in extraordinary circumstances.
