Galway Hockey Club




Here in Galway Hockey Club, once a member, always a member.  Family is important, so we encourage all family members to register and join in the games where possible.

It is important to note that every person, player/coach/volunteer are required to be registered with Hockey Ireland (HI) as well as their individual club.  This will ensure they are covered by Hockey Ireland Personal accident insurance.  In the past, Galway Hockey Club could register all members in bulk.  However, this year, HI requires every member to register separately.  Therefore registration is a two step process which we hope, if you follow the steps below, will make it easier:

How to register:

To register as a Galway Hockey Club member, please follow the two steps below:

Step one:

The cost will be €10 per player (Adult and Junior). 

Once registered, you will receive a HI registration number via email.  This number (MEXXXX) will be required to continue to register with Galway Hockey Club.  (Please take the number down when you see it as it only appears once) Failure to register with Hockey Ireland (HI) means that you will not be able to register with our club, play in provincial or national competitions.  HI membership will also ensure your inclusion in the HI personal accident insurance scheme.  It is vital therefore that a valid email address is given to that you can ensure that you data is correct. 

Please note:  Prior year's Personal Accident Insurance cover was from 1/08/2022 - 31/07/2023.  If you have not registered with HI or the club before returning to training this season, players are training at their own risk and could be asked to stop training or leave the pitch area.
