Timperley Sports Club (TSC) membership fees are now due - hockey is a section of TSC and annual subscriptions are made to support the running and the development of the overall club and facilities that we have access too.
We know everyone likes a moan about paying any annual fees 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 other clubs.
We 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.
Ways to Pay your TSC subscription
See the 2017 - 18 Membership Fees below - as agreed at the Club AGM .
Winter section sports subs are due by 1st October 2017 and must be paid by this date unless opting for the two instalment option.
- Pay on line via the website - see the range of membership types available and select the the one off payment or two instalment option if you set up payment by 14th September
A two instalment payment option available if you sign up before 14th September. You must log on to your website profile to be able to pay on line.
This option is only available for playing membership - social subs need to be paid via the bar.
- Pay via the bar - payments can be made over the bar by cash or card. Make sure you record your details on the subscriptions sheet and keep your receipt as proof of payment. Please try to avoid asking the bar team to take membership payments when the bar is very busy !
One of the benefits of being a senior member of TSC is that once your subs are paid you can apply for a '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.

Membership is more than subs !
We're delighted that Nishi Sahti, whose been involved with our Academy for a number of years, has take on the #OneClub Membership Secretary role - this will cover Academy and Senior players.
Nisha will also be helping us get our records up to date and will need your help - this means we can make sure we communicate to the right members at the right time, spend less time doing admin jobs like collating data for EH Affiliations and help feed in important information on hockey as part of Project 18.
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. Our volunteers spend hours chasing people each week - so we really want to one process in place across the club to 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 !
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.
