If you are a returning Player you should contact the Club of your choice. You may find instructions and links on the Club Website. It is recommended that you follow any guidance given by your Club. See below for a basic outline of the process.
Process Outline - 2019
When a player wishes to register to play in Season 2019, they will do this through a Club of their choice. Once the player has chosen a Club, they will look to that Club to provide them with:
- a link to the Club's registration form (Word, PDF, etc) or an online registration system (Majestri, etc) - this registers the Player with the Club;
- a link to the Club's Gameday Platform portal - this registers the Player with Hockey Australia, Hockey Queensland and for Player Insurance. It also serves to flag to the Club and to BHA that a player has registered.
Players are required to do both of the above. In the Gameday Platform, each Club has their own unique registration link. Clubs will usually display both of the links mentioned above on their Website, Facebook, and will likely email them to their existing players or to new players upon request.
It is important that Clubs let their members know that when they are registering in Gameday they will need to select a BHA product and their Club product/s. They should not select any BWHA/Women's products.
Final Notes & Clarification
In order to play Hockey with a Club affiliated with the Brisbane Hockey Association (BHA) it is a requirement that players register with Hockey Australia (HA) and also register with a Club. Registering with HA involves registering on the Gameday Platform and will automatically register a player with Hockey Queensland (HQ) and for Player Insurance. It also serves to flag the Club and to flag BHA that a player has registered. Some fees are collected during the Gameday registration process.
When registering with Gameday:
- new player will obviously need to create a new account - they will need to tap the "Don't have an account?" link in the login form and follow the prompts;
- returning players will need to enter the email address that they used last year AND will then need to tap the "Forgot password?" link. This is because while the records held in SportsTG (previous system) have been migrated to Gameday, passwords were not included for reasons of security. It is a simple process to enter a new password or even a previous one.
Players should always make sure they record their password in a safe and secure place.
