The City has invested in providing all of our sport and recreation clubs with a free membership to Club Spot, which is an online library of resources specifically created for grassroot sports clubs and it's volunteers. Clubs and their volunteers will have free access to hundreds of support and training resources. Club Spot membership includes templates, videos, articles and checklists on topics vital for volunteers. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- How to run an AGM

Club Spot is a great support tool for all volunteers and will serve as a guide to assist in understanding their role, what is required in the role and how to achieve success for their club.

A two week maintenance period program is scheduled at all City reserves in between seasons.
General maintenance period works are scheduled during office hours, which are unlikely to impact training or game days.
Should major renovation works be required for a reserve, that is expected to exceed the general two week maintenance period and impact the club's operation, notification will be provided at the earliest opportunity before the renovations commence.
Line Marking on Reserves
As per the Terms and Conditions of Hire - markings, layout and dimensions of playing areas are the responsibility of the club. All markings on grass are to be in Professional Sports Grass Line marking paint only to be used in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and appropriate safety measures. No chemical additions may be added to the paint as it results in turf death or decline. Failure to comply with the Terms and Conditions allows the City the rights to cancel any seasonal or regular booking.
Please visit the Sporting reserves page for more information on reserve hire and line marking.
