PLAYER REGISTRATION FOR 2021
Registration for 2021 are now open. Registration details can be seen here https://suhc.com.au/registration/
As with all amateur sporting organizations, the club’s cash flows and finances are very dependent on its members paying their membership and playing fees on time and in full. The club reserves the right to not select playing members whose fees are in arrears post Round 1. The club may consider special arrangements for payment of fees due to exceptional financial hardship on a case by case basis.
Premier League/Reserves Player Fees
Players selected and registering with the Premier League/Reserves Squad select the Premier league playing option.
We have changed the due date for payment of fees for the PL and Reserves players with a portion of the fees ($250) needing to be paid by the 31st Jan 2021, and the balance either to be paid in full or via a payment plan.
In the event of a cancelled season this $250 will not be refundable.
Training schedule is available here
CLUB UNIFORMS AND UNIFORM CLASHES
The SUHC uniform is available from the Shop at Farm Road and must be worn at all Home and Away games – the only exceptions are the Premier League & Reserve teams which have an official Away top. In the event of a colour clash – refer to this link for details Clash Summary SUHC then either the Club away top or a plain white top must be worn. In the event of sock clashes the preference is for the club black socks to be worn which are available from the Shop. Full clash details are available on the HV website here
Players in junior under 16 Shield teams (A grade) must wear numbered playing tops. Numbers are allocated by the junior section and are available here. Players in Premier league/reserves and pennant women’s and men’s teams also must wear player numbers. Numbers for men are available here, and women here.

ALL players are required to wear a mouth guard and shin guards at both games and training for safety reasons. The club will provide Goalkeeping gear for players who want to try out for that position. For career goalkeepers we suggest that they purchase a kit themselves.
In junior games, ALL players defending in penalty corners MUST wear a face mask. The club provides four face masks per team for this purpose.
HEART RATE MONITORS
Hockey Victoria have advised that players are not allowed to wear fitness monitors unless they are covered with a sweatband or tape. If not they will be regarded as watches and the players asked to remove them.
Our club is run on volunteers and we are always looking for people to help out with the running of the club – whether at a committee level or someone to turn the sausages on the BBQ. It is very rewarding being able to help out and we urge you to see what you can do to put back into the club. If you are unable to help out on the day to day running of the club then you may have a service that you can offer – either way we would be happy to hear from you. For Volunteering please contact the relevant section leaders or if you have a product or service that you can offer to the club then contact Help offered.
Each section has it’s own selection policy – please refer to each section for details.
CODE OF BEHAVIOUR/CONDUCT
The SUHC uses the Hockey Victoria code of conduct and all players must agree to abiding by this when registering. The Southern United Hockey Club does not condone or accept the use of bad language, rough play or abusing of either other players or umpires. The club supports the pinciple of Sportsmanship and Fair Play. It is expected that players, coaches, parents and supporters recognise and encourage the contribution of its players and umpires in a correct manner. Abusive language, especially when directed towards officials cannot and will not be tolerated.
We trust that all players will take pride in the wearing of the Southern United Club colours and that their approach and manner will reflect this pride. If an incident does arise then the players and/or officials involved will be asked to explain to a disciplinary committee.
