Open Door Policy...

CFHC maintains an “Open Door” policy, anybody interested in coming out to play some field hockey is more then welcome. Please email info@chicagofhc.com if you have questions after reading membership information on this page.

Keeping up to date...

We send out our weekly updates and notifications via Teamer.net. In order to receive CFHC communications, you will need to join this group. Email one of the captains for an invitation to join this group.


Before your first practice...

You MUST register with the club (this is also a requirement as a visiting player, if you are just checking out the team, or plan to become a member). We take precautions to keep the game as safe as possible, but anytime you combine sticks and a hard plastic ball, there's the potential for injury. For liability reasons, we must have your signature on file to say that you are accepting the risk of playing with us. We do strongly suggest that all players wear shin guards and a mouth guard when playing, but because we are an adult organization, we do not police compliance with this. We often have extra sticks on hand at practice, so don't let lack of equipment stop you from coming.

 

 

After you've checked out a few sessions... If you enjoy playing with us we ask that you become a member by paying the annual dues which are destined to further develop the club and rent facilities. The dues may vary every season depending on the rental costs and membership base so please check the Fee Schedule for the current year. In addition all members are required to be USFHA members for insurance coverage. With the USFHA membership you get full liability and supplemental medical insurance for the whole year at any CFHC field hockey event. USFHA Membership is quick and easy to apply for on-line.  

 

 

Visit the our Join us page to fill out the membership form, register with USFHA and submit annual dues.


Enjoy your hockey...

Once becoming a member, you are eligible for all benefits of membership including selection for tournaments. In some cases, we send teams to tournaments based on the first members who sign up. For other tournaments, the captains will pick the best team from those members who have made themselves available. The type of selection process will be stated when the tournament is announced. Don't want to travel? No problem - continue to come along to practices, hang out afterwards, and mark the year end game and party on your calendar! We order uniforms on a regular basis; members are eligible for a substantially subsidized rate on uniform purchase. More details will depend on the timing of when you join.


Our club is diverse and fun but can always use more enthusiastic hockey fans, so CFHC looks forward to new players joining the club!


No Worries!
