Canteen Duty Info

Throughout the year the canteen raises funds which help to subsidise your fees. FHC membership requires you to undertake a canteen duty OR pay the required opt out of canteen duty fee of $100 prior to Round 1. For those members that selected to complete their canteen duty, please click the link below to nominate your preferred date and time.

Please note that due to the pavilion re-development and the temporary canteen facility due to arrive in March – the Canteen duties have not been scheduled as yet.

If you do not select a time, the Canteen Manager will roster you in to an available time slot, which should not clash with your scheduled match.  To ensure you are allocated to a time that suits you, please click on the above link and select your time prior to your first game.

For junior parents completing their child’s canteen duty, please add your child’s full name and team in to the comment section.

Alternatively if you have selected to pay the opt out fee, please ensure this is paid at the time of your registration for Footscray Hockey Club. Failure to confirm and complete your rostered duty (or no shows) will automatically incur a $150 charge to be paid prior to your next game.

Club Song

Sons of the Scray’s (Girls of the West)
Red, white and blue
We’ll come out snarling
Bulldogs through and through
Bulldogs bite and bulldogs roar
We give our very best
Because you can’t beat the boys of the Bulldog breed (girls)
The team of the mighty West
