2021 National Series Game Fees

 Some of you may be wondering how to pay the admin fee for your National Series Cup/League game(s), particularly if you’ve played in a fixture that’s already happened! 

 

With the ongoing uncertainty around Coronavirus and with each team possibly playing a different number of games at each fixture, we thought it would be simpler for teams to have the option to pay the sum of their admin fees once they know the final number of National Series games played this season (excluding the National Championships). Alternatively, teams can still choose to pay for each game as it happens. It’s entirely up to you!

 

When you’re ready to pay, you just need to go to the GoMembership event here: http://bit.ly/2021NationalSeriesGameFeePayment 

Funded training course: Sudden Cardiac Arrest eLearning

UK Coaching Sudden Cardiac Arrest eLearning

 

We are extremely grateful to UK Coaching and Sport England for collaborating to provide this free-of-charge resource that could make all the difference in an emergency situation.

Having witnessed Christian Eriksen’s live collapse at Euro 2020, we have no doubt that you'll be alongside us with your thoughts and best wishes for Eriksen and his family.

The occurrence of the medical emergency in a live sporting environment has brought the reality of sudden cardiac arrest, on the pitch, in the park, on the kerb, to a stark reality.

The question is: do you know how to respond?

  • Would you recognise the onset of a sudden cardiac arrest?
  • Do you know the actions to take?
  • Do you know how to perform CPR?
  • Would you be able to locate the nearest defibrillator?

UK Coaching have collaborated with Sport England who have funded an eLearning course that everyone can access free of charge. It will guide you through how to respond quickly to a sudden cardiac arrest.

Learn how to save a life.
