Parent Split Fee Arrangements
Holland Park Hawks FC will set-up the registration process in the relevant system and issue notifications. Players will need to be registered and fees paid as per the process outlined.
It is not Holland Park Hawks FC role to become involved in disputes between parents/carers about the payment of fees. Payment arrangements are a matter for parents/carers to settle between themselves.
Holland Park Hawks FC will not enter into contacting parents/carers to organise alternative payment arrangements – it is for the parents/carers to ensure the payment process is followed in the interests of the player. Holland Park Hawks FC is not able to enter into part payment or 50/50 invoicing arrangements. We require payment to be made as registered/requested. It is the responsibility of the parents/carers to arrange reimbursement from any other parents/carers.
NOTE: Email Communication for separated families
For families who are separated, we would recommend the use of ONE email address, with multiple access for parents/carers, be used for all Holland Park Hawks FC communications, including Team App. This allows us to ensure that all parents/carers receive the same information at the same time. We have seen this used successfully by many of our families.
It is not Holland Park Hawks FC role to become involved in disputes between parents/carers about a player’s fees, team level, fixtures, training schedule, etc. We would ask that families work out the best strategy for them to ensure that the player’s registration process and training/game day organisation runs smoothly for all.
Thank you for your understanding.
