Club Definition

England Hockey welcomes all hockey clubs as members. It is however necessary to define a club in order to provide clarity on membership. Clubs come in all shapes and sizes but there are some aspects that differentiate a club from a school, a corporate team or a BUCS only team. There are separate arrangements for schools who wish to become members of EHB, and membership of England Hockey is NOT required to enter any England Hockey schools competitions, or any hockey-related school games activity.

Characteristics of a club:

  • Plays league hockey at the weekend
  • Has a bank account, with two authorised signatories
  • Has a formal constitution, approved by the club committee
  • Carries appropriate insurance
  • Has open membership
  • Is committed to achieving the objectives within Uniting the Hockey Family
  • If the club has juniors, has achieved or is committed to achieving and maintaining ClubsFirst, evidencing that they are a safe, effective and child friendly club

England Hockey reserves the right to refuse affiliation to any club in line with its constitution.

If you have any questions regarding affiliation, please contact or call 01628 897500 and we will get back to you.
