New member information

To make sure you are going to love being part of our club we invite you to come along to three training sessions without the need to pay a membership fee. Once you have attended these training sessions and are ready to join we will help you with the joining process: it’s really simple and can be done online. You will also benefit from a reduced fee in your first year. So for £55 (for an adult) you can attend weekly training sessions free of charge between late August and March (that’s about 30 training sessions – so not a bad price of £1.84 per week to keep fit and have fun!). We hope you will love hockey and Felixstowe Hockey Club as much as we do!

Matches: Our matches take place on a Saturday either at home on the astro pitch at Maidstone Campus, or away. Our teams play at a range of levels so even if you’re new, we can fit you into a team. We pay match subs on the day, you’ll be provided with a playing shirt, and on home games players take turns to cook match teas (drinks and light snacks).

Kit: You don’t need a lot to start off with. A hockey stick (we can lend you one until you start playing in matches), shin pads, mouth guard, trainers (astro shoes if you decide to keep going) and either a skort or shorts. We have a club shop where you can buy branded training clothing should you wish to.

Still interested: Come along to training on one of the nights above and introduce yourself and we’ll give you a very warm FHC welcome! So whether you’ve never played  before, attended the back to hockey sessions or just want to get fit and make friends or want to return to the game after not playing for years, you’re very welcome at FHC!

Don’t forget to find us on Facebook to keep up to date with news and events.
