With the Victorian Government easing COVID-19 restrictions, Council is working closely with state sporting associations to implement consistent return to play protocols for local sporting/recreation clubs/associations.  These processes and resources will assist all groups to safely transition back into Council facilities and once again provide valuable community programs.  


Return to Sport Toolkit 

All Moorabool sport clubs and associations operating out of Council owned or managed facilities must receive Council endorsement of their completed 'Return to Sport Agreement' and 'Risk Register'.  Clubs/associations are also required to commit to utilising the other support documents/registers on a per use basis.


Return to Sport Agreement - To be completed by club/association and endorsed by Council

Return to Sport Risk Register - To be completed by club/association and endorsed by Council

Return to Sport Facility Checklist - To be completed before each session

Return to Sport Facility Cleaning Register - To be completed as required

Cleaning and Disinfecting Guide - Support resource


If your club/association requires any assistance to complete these forms, please contact Council's Connected Communities Unit.


Further Council Support and Assistance

Council is hosting weekly online forums for all Moorabool sport clubs and associations on Wednesdays at 7:30pm.  Please contact the Connected Communities unit for login details.
