STEP 1: Hockey NT and Hockey Australia fees

Hockey Australia (HA) and Hockey NT (HNT) charge all players a levy, these are mandatory amounts required by the regulatory bodies. These fees are separate from WHC fees and are required at time of registration. The HNT/HA fees are:

$104.90 for a senior player (including casual players)

$55.10 for a junior player

You MUST be registered to play hockey with our club prior to playing any games. Please use the registration link above.


Players transferring from another club

If you are new to Waratahs and have previously played in another club or in the indoor competition, you can now RENEW your registration with Waratahs.  This will create a transfer process from your previous club, once completed please email our secretary at so we can monitor and progress a smooth transfer.

Please select REGISTER if you have NOT registered during 2022.

Please select RENEW if you have previously registered for the 2022 season or for the 2023 HNT Indoor season.


STEP 2: Waratah Hockey Club fees

Waratahs offer the most competitive fees in the Darwin Hockey League to promote social inclusion and accessibility across the community. We are able to do this through the hard work of volunteers, fundraising efforts and the generous support of sponsors.

The club’s fees in 2023 are set out below.

Please note the club fees cover the minor rounds only (i.e. up to round 15).  For teams that make the finals series, additional fees will apply.  That fee will be $20 for players in a senior game and $10 for players in a junior game.  The maximum amount for any junior or senior player will be $20 for the round.

Senior player $400
Senior fulltime tertiary student1 $300
Senior goalie with own kit $250

1.     Current evidence of fulltime student status must be provided to the club at the time of registration.  Please email

2.     When a junior plays 3 or more games in senior teams, they are classified as a ‘junior playing seniors’.  Players attending high school that are not eligible for the junior competition are classified as a ‘junior playing seniors’ for the purpose of fees.

3.     Any new junior player to WHC will receive their first game shirt free of charge.

4.     In addition to a game shirt, new U8s members will receive a hockey starter stick pack, which generally includes a stick, ball and shin guards.

5.     Casual players will be entitled to play 5 games for the club with their initial fee.  After a player has played 5 casual games, they will be regarded as a ‘senior player’ and will be required to pay full fees.

6.     Casual players that are fulltime tertiary students must pay $25/game.  The player must ensure they have the required clearances to play in the NT, before they take the field, if they are registered in an inter-state club.

Umpiring commitment

In 2023, clubs are responsible to supply umpires for B and C Grade games.  Waratahs will create an umpiring roster for members that play in senior teams (excluding coaches, managers, committee members and life members) which will be published on our website. There is no payment offered by Waratahs for umpiring.

Members must fulfill the umpiring commitment themselves or arrange for someone else to do it. (If the member arranges someone else, the decision to pay them a fee or not is an entirely private one and the club will not be held liable for any payments). If the member, or the person they arranged to umpire on their behalf, do not show up to umpire the scheduled game, the member will be responsible for any fine issued by HNT. Further, failure to supply an umpire has implications for competition points and HNT may deduct points from a club’s team.  For example, if a Waratah’s umpire does not show up for a BW game, the Waratah’s BW team can lose competition points.
