Resources for Sporting Clubs

Council wants to support local sporting clubs on and off the field.

Administration and Governance at clubs can be quite time consuming and onerous on volunteers.

Sport and Recreation have compiled resources to assist club volunteers with these administrative tasks and to provide information to support your club's operations. Please contact Sport and Recreation on (03) 8571 1000 or email recreation@cgd.vic.gov.au if you would like to access these resources.
