Welcome to Phoenix Reading Hockey Club for Season 2023/24
For season 2023/24, all members (including juniors) MUST be registered on Pitchero before paying their annual subscription. Parents firstly register themselves as Parents on the system so that they receive notifications. Parents then register their children individually as Club Members in order for us to manage our membership database accurately.
If you’re a parent, please ensure your child’s name, and date of birth is entered onto the form correctly. Please don’t set up the child’s account with your date of birth or email address. Create your parent account and then add your child as a Club Member.
If you were a member of the club last year, please update your details and ensure everything is accurate.
We’re not using Pitchero to allow payment of subs as there is a charge (to you and us!) for using this service. The Club will take payment by bank transfer and the details are at the bottom of the page. Please ensure you read these properly.
ANNUAL SUBS AND MATCH FEES
Our fees!! They are frozen at the same as last season with no increases at all on annual subs or training and match fees. This is the 9th season in a row that we've frozen our fees to help our club members afford to play hockey.
The deadline for payment for returning members is 7 October 2023.
USE OF PITCHERO
We will use Pitchero to keep you updated on fixtures, selection for matches, training updates, social events, and club news. It will be your one stop, go to place for all things Phoenix.

It will save you time, save the club time, and mean our records are always up to date - you are in control of the information we hold about you!
