Register on the new England Hockey system

New this year is that match sheets and player registration is all going through a new system run by England Hockey. As a result we require all players to register with England Hockey and to put us down as their club. This enables match day admin for your captains and provides a record of our club membership.

The process is slightly different for players over 18 and those under 18. The process for players signing up is as follows:

Players Over 18 Players under 18 must be registered by a parent
1. Go to https://gms.englandhockey.co.uk and click ‘Register’Select ‘player’
2. add your details and select your club (HAILSHAM)
3. You’ll get a code sent so you can proceed
4. Complete your full profile
5. Wait for approval from your club 
1.       Go to https://gms.englandhockey.co.ukand ‘Register’
2.       Select ‘parent’, add your details, select your club (get this right!)
3.       You’ll get a code sent so you can proceed
4.       Complete your full profile including the details of your players
5.       Wait for approval from your club (Note that when players are 18 full profiles can be created and transferred to player)

Support roles who may appear on a match sheet such as coach, manager, or physio etc should sign up using the player information above.

The club pays money out before the season has begun. This includes affiliation, insurance and facility use. Hailsham offers one of the cheapest ways to play hockey in the county. Details of fees can be found here. You can pay this in a lump sum or adult subscriptions can be spread over September, October and November.
