Bentstix Fee Assistance Fund

Bentstix Sydney Gay and Lesbian Hockey Club is a successful hockey club that allows players to be open and proud of their sexuality while competing in mixed competitions, helping to foster acceptance and understanding.

Bentstix recognises that hockey can sometimes be expensive. We understand that there are occasions when existing and potential club members may be engaged in tertiary study, be experiencing financial hardship, or be involved in unforeseen career change where cost can be a limiting factor in the ability to join in the fun and frivolity that is club hockey.

Over the last few years, the club has been working towards an assistance program to provide financially disadvantaged players with payment support so that they too can have the opportunity to pick up a stick and be a part of the club.

In 2014, we are excited to announce the formation of the Bentstix Fee Assistance Fund. Each year players experiencing financial hardship will be able to apply to the executive for up to $150 in fee assistance.

Any fee assistance provided by the club will be subject to the available funds and fundraising activities will be undertaken each year to replenish the pool. Recipients are expected to participate in fundraising efforts.
