Current USA Field Hockey Membership Required for All Players:
Due to insurance requirements, all players must be members of the USA Field Hockey Association in order to participate in practices and non-USFHA sponsored local tournaments. You must purchase your annual USFHA membership through us for $10 (please pay the additional $10 fee during registration; preferably - add it to your checkout - or via Venmo at the first practice). Memberships last for one year (e.g.f if you paid the $10 fee in the fall of 2019, you will not need to pay the fee again until the fall of 2020). Please contact us if you are unsure if you have paid the fee. Note: if your child will be participating in a regional tournament or an event sponsored by USFHA tournament, you will have to purchase a full USA Field Hockey Membership directly from the USFHA ($25 for U12 and $60 for U14-U19; please select "Golden Gate Rippers" as your club affiliation). We will let you know whether a tournament or event is sponsored by USFHA in advance.
