School Sport Allocations

Council allocates sporting fields, courts and cricket nets on a seasonal basis.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) will be sought for hire of playing surfaces twice a year. Summer EOI opens in July and winter EOI opens in February.

The summer season aligns with the school terms 1 and 4.

The winter season aligns with the school terms 2 and 3.

Schools may request allocation between 9am to 3pm, Tuesday to Friday within school terms. School groups may only request actual usage (maximum of 4 hours per field per day), with blanket bookings not accepted.

Once the EOI has been processed, Council will provide the hirer with a Sporting Facilities Allocation Permit detailing the applicable hiring days and times for the season.

EOI's are only accepted through the online form below.
