Easter 2021 Hockey Camps
With the easing of lockdown we are delighted to announce that ACHC will be running camps again this Easter (subject of course to any change of government direction on Covid), and that registration for these camps has now opened.
All the camps are suitable for members, friends and non-members alike, so please do spread the word and forward this invitation to your friends.
All camps are run at the pitch in Amersham. The format of the day is: starts with registration between 9.45 - 10am: pick-up for lunch at 12: restart at 13.30: and pick-up at the end of the day at 15.30.
We used this format last summer given we cannot use the clubhouse for lunch but need to give the children the ability to go home and warm-up/ change clothes if necessary.
We have camps for a variety of levels and age groups (all age groups based on 2020-21 season), please see details below, with booking and payment information below this schedule:

Cost, booking & payment details
The cost will be £25 per day.
Bookings are now open, to both club members and non-members alike, and to run these we are going to be trialling our new club system for the first time. It’s called Teamo, and supports all the things our existing system (Hitsports) does, but also provides a load of additional functionality that we badly need.
One consequence of which will be a massive reduction in the admin burden on Sarah, our Treasurer, and on those managing the camps.
So, to sign up for these camps you need to follow this link: https://web.teamo.chat/club/register/achc
It is all pretty self-explanatory on the screens, but a few things to be aware of:
The system is not compatible with some versions of Safari.
If you, the parent, are a player at A&C then you register yourself first, download the app and then come back to register your children (user guide can be found at: Amersham & Chalfont HC Registration Guide - Playing Parents (3).pdf)
If you are not a player do one child first, then additional children, then enter a parent / guardian. You also have the option to enter a 2nd parent/ guardian (user guide can be found at: Amersham & Chalfont HC Registration Guide - Non Playing Parents (2).pdf )
For date of birth don’t scroll back month by month! Instead click on the date at the top e.g. Feb 2021 and you can then go quickly to the correct year.
Children who are regular members (paid subs) – for the children select the Junior Main Season Players as the Club Section/ Team (only select this one option even if the child plays adults as well - or they will get charged double subs come September.....)
Children who are not regular members (have not paid A&C subs) – for the children select Mailing List as the Club Section/ Team (only select this one option).
Once you have registered, download the Teamo app. In the background someone will assign your child to the relevant group within Teamo (within 24 hours) and then you you will be able to book onto a camp (you'll see the camps appear in your Teamo calendar).
Select the camp/date you want, click ticket required, enter payment details (the first time you connect your payment card it may take a few minutes, as the details are stored in Stripe), then connect your child to the relevant camp. Note that you have to book in one child per day and then pay, there is no ‘shopping basket’. But once your card is registered with Stripe then it should be all very quick.
If you have a problem with using Teamo please either use their Help Center at https://web2.teamo.chat/features (self help /FAQ’s)or contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org (not a live chat but email, and they aim for a response by the next day), or there is Support Chat within the app that they try to respond to within a few hours (during working hours Monday to Friday).
If you do not use mobile banking then please complete the registration, book onto the camp without paying, and then email me at email@example.com and I can sort payment by cheque.
We can accommodate complete beginners in all groups except Fridays (9th and 16th).
If the day you want is full then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will see if we can add more coaches to enable more participants.
Look forward to seeing lots of enthusiastic kids in April!
