Information for Sporting Clubs

Sports Club Development

The Melton City Council Recreation team provides support to local sports clubs through development and training workshops ranging from first aid, committee management to  latest information trends. The sessions are free and available to members of Melton Council sports clubs.  Information regarding workshops will be sent to our contact at Council. 


Club Self Help Information

Club Help is a web service for volunteers in sport and recreation clubs to assist with all aspects of running a successful club. In just a few minutes you can see how your club is doing in any of the 9 areas of club management by completing an online assessment. On completion of an assessment you will be emailed a plan document with ideas to assist your club to improve where needed. 

Melton City Council encourages clubs to utilise the website and its affiliated resources. 

Booking a Recreation Reserve or Sporting Venue

Registered sporting clubs with Melton City Council are guided through an application process for seasonal bookings. Schools or other clubs looking to make casual bookings for sporting venues and reserves can contact Melton City Council directly. 

Coming Soon

Our Recreation team are in the process of implementing a new web-based portal, which will allow clubs to make seasonal and casual venue applications online. This program will streamline the booking process, allowing seasonal clubs to submit all of their relevant information in one place and allowing casual users to access information on venues available for bookings. 


There are a range of internal and external funding sources available to sporting and recreational groups. Information on these grants can be found below.
