No Pay - No Play kicks in from next weeks selection - so get your subs paid and don't miss out on hockey from 6th October

Time's nearly up for everyone (adults and Under 18's / Academy) to have paid your TSC annual playing subscription.If you haven't paid by this Sunday, 30th September 2018, you will not be put forward for selection in week commencing 1st October and matches on 6th October.

So, please don't delay - see how to pay below either at the Bar (cash, bank card, cheque) or on line (in full only). If you have any personal reasons impacting your ability to pay please contact your Club Captain - Cuey or Kieran no later than Friday 28th September to discuss.

Many thanks to everyone who has already paid their TSC membership /playing fees for 2018-19. If you've already paid over the bar, have set up an online payment (full or installments), or paid the Academy, you don't need to do any more.

Online payments can take between 5 - 7 days to be debited from your Bank Account after the payment dates given on the website 'products' - this is because of the banking / DD process. Direct Debits are for either one off or the installments you've signed up they are not recurring and will not be taken for future seasons.


Everyone who has not paid or set up an on line payment needs to do the following :

a) School year 11 and below - pay the academy on Sunday morning

[b]b) Year 12 /13 and everyone over 18 (adults !)

Pay at the bar by Sunday 30th September - cash, cheque or bank card and ensure your subs is recorded on the hockey sheet and your retain your receipt

Pay online (full payments only) must be set up by Sunday 30th September - it may take up to a week for the payment to be debited from your bank account
Go to:

Please ensure your Pitchero Profile is up to date and all details provided. Membership to TSC uses this data to update club records

c) If a paid up member of TSC for 2018-19 via any other sport (Cricket, Lax or Junior Football, this covers your TSC membership for all sports. For under 16's the hockey fee on top of subs does apply)

NO PAY NO PLAY from selection for games Saturday 6th October 2018

No Pay - No Plays means that you will NOT be consider for selection from w/c 30th September is you have not paid your subs or been in contact with your club captain to set out any reasons why you are unable to pay.

Captains and Committee members are not going to spend time chasing people up who have not paid - you just wont be selected as priority will go to paid up members. Please don't be selfish and put more work on our volunteers by not paying on time - its your responsibility as a player to pay on time. So this year lets not have the usual - I'll pay Saturday (6th October) no payment will mean no selection - unless agreed in exceptional circumstances by the committee (cases put forward by Club Captains before 24th September)

Timperley Sports Club (TSC) membership fees must be paid by 30th September to enable you to continue to use club facilities and pitches - Timperley Hockey Club is a section of TSC and annual subscriptions are collected from all sections and social members to support the running and the development of the overall club and facilities that we have access too. Make use you read on to find our what payment options are available !

Subs must be paid by the cut off time - please don't think subs link to League Hockey or Matches - players have had the opportunity to play hockey, train and use the clubhouse for most of the spring / summer.

We know everyone likes a moan about paying any annual fees to any organisation but just have a think about how many other clubs offer our two on site astro's, large clubhouse and hockey pretty much 12 months ! We also know TSC subs are very good value and cheaper than the vast majority of other clubs. TSC fund all the facilities you can see in our 'drone' view of the club , from pitches, to heating, water, cleaning, bar and other staff, repairs, maintenance and every thing else needed to run the club for us to use 365 days a year.

In the last few weeks work has been taking place at the club funded by TSC from repairing the drive / potholes to tree surgeon's pruning the trees surrounding the astro's. Subs go towards the running of the club and mean the hockey section is not hiring pitches off site to play on at £100+ a game or £80 an hour for training.

The Hockey Section fund the playing of hockey coaching, affiliation, insurance, equipment, match days and everything else through raising income through the section mainly from match fees, fund-raising, sponsorship and fees. So in a nutshell that's how the split works between TSC Membership Fees (Subs) and other hockey income.

Club Cards

One of the benefits of being a senior (aged 18+) member of TSC is that once your subs are paid you can apply for a 'TSC ClubCard' that you can use for all bar purchases. The big benefit if that for every £1 you 'load' on your card the club increase the value by 10%. For example - put £30 on your card and you get £33 to spend over the bar. You can top up and load money onto your card via the bar using a card or cash. So get your subs paid early, get your personalised card and start benefiting. The savings you make over the year in effective give you savings against the cost of your subs.

No cards will be issued until you've paid your subs.

Part of Project 18 - the next phase of TSC development - includes work to look at our legal structure, rules and subscriptions and payments. We are now working towards becoming a Community Benefit Society in 2019 as agreed in principle at the TSC AGM in April. There will be an EGM about the changes during the net few months and we are also looking at how subs collection will work in the future.

Membership is more than subs !

Having accurate member data is key to the smooth running of the hockey section and club. From registering players with leagues to team selection and communications it all relies on up to date data - and everyone can help reduce the time chasing around by getting their Pitchero Profile up to date- add a photo - and check any medical conditions and emergency contact details are updated for all players of all ages.

Better data and systems will also mean we can make some strides forward to reduce the overall admin time spend on getting teams out on the pitch from availability, selection and communications. This year we will be fully rolling out the use of Pitchero to help player and our volunteers spend hours chasing people each week - so with one process in place - with web and app based access this can make life easier - especially for those who give up their time to make all the logistics of hockey happen at the Club !

So a little flexibility and co-operation from everyone to help introduce some new ways of doing things will have a big impact on time spent overall. Over an average week end in the season we need to get around 200 - 225 players organised and 12 - 15 umpires across the section from our under 10's to our Vets and everything in between !

Please do you bit by helping the smooth running of the hockey section and Club by paying your subs on time, getting your data up to date by registering on Pitchero, or updating your profile.

Thanks in advance from the hockey committee for you help in getting subs paid and sorted on time !

* TSC, having CASC (Community Amateur Sports Club) status, classes a Junior subscription (under 18) where possible, as a voluntary donation for basic membership only. A separate additional charge is made by the Hockey Section for players up to School year 11 in respect of the provision of coaching and playing facilities to each Junior member. In this way the Club is able to treat these donations in the normal way for Gift Aid purposes and reclaim tax from HMRC.
