Welcome to the Erskine Stewart’s Melville Hockey Club (ESMHC) member registration form. It can be used for both Senior Section and Youth Section members. Senior members who are also Youth member parents/guardians can complete this one form for both types of registration. Senior Section members under 18 years of age should complete this form themselves, but a parent/guardian must co-sign the declarations at the end of it.

Once registered, members are asked to log in and update this form before the start of every season and as soon as possible if any details change – especially in the case of any relevant medical conditions. All information will be treated with great care and only shared with third parties where strictly necessary (e.g. in medical emergencies). See the Club’s Privacy Policy for more details.

Please note that the Club is required to provide details of all members to Scottish Hockey for the purposes of of registration and its associated insurance cover. This includes name, date of birth and email address. For new members transferring from another Scottish club, we also provide the name of that club to facilitate the transfer, as players are only permitted to be registered with one Scottish hockey club under the rules.

Before completing or updating the membership registration form, please review the following documents on this website:

The form can be completed using a smartphone but is easiest with a tablet or computer.
