Membership 2021 – Physical Registration at Complex Friday 28th May 8pm

For those who have no online access or prefer to register manually, we will be collecting adult non-player memberships on Friday 28th May at the Complex at 8pm. Please keep in mind the current Covid 19 restrictions. If spectators are allowed to attend games later this summer, there will be a quota system and our club members will have precedence on the limited number of tickets given.

It is important that all players, adult and juvenile are registered as players will not be insured until membership is paid and will not be able to train or play on the pitch.

In light of the Covid 19 Pandemic and its continuing impact on our community and activities we have given a 25% reduction in fees to all members as reflected in this year’s prices. Family discounts will still apply also with €10 being deducted for multiple registrations from the same family (Must be processed all at once).

A parent must register with anyone under the age of 18, therefore you will be required to include an “Adult non-playing” to the basket.

If children are registered without parent being added or if at least 1 Parent/Guardian (GDPR contact) isn’t included with a juvenile registration, then we will issue a refund and ask you to register again. Please arrange your membership on our Clubforce Platform, which is linked on our Social Media platforms, if you are not physically registering as outlined above.

Also please note everyone must register before they can play.

Thank you for your cooperation.
