Supporting Our Community

Information for Sporting Clubs and Sporting Groups

The City has made it a priority to get winter sporting clubs back to training as soon as possible, with some local clubs resuming as of Monday 18 May and more to follow in the next few weeks.

Clubs training on leased premises from the City along with community clubs using Vincent reserves can all start as soon as they have completed the State Government COVID-19 Safety Plan.

Clubs must also ensure they are following the non-contact distancing directives, keep shared equipment to a minimum and cleaned between use (hockey sticks, balls and racquets only) and keep a register of those in attendance.

These strict protocols form part of the COVID-19 Safety Plan requirements and are enforceable by the State Government in the interests of keeping the community safe during the pandemic.

We are providing checklists for sporting clubs to support them to return within the guidelines as fast as possible.

COVID-19: WA Roadmap

If you cannot find an answer, contact us at community.partnerships@vincent.wa.gov.au. Please note that as the situation is constantly evolving, we may need to get back to you with an answer.

While many face to face activities and operations are now restricted, the City is encouraging our community to create new ways to connect with each other online or with other social distancing measures. If your community group is innovating to deliver services to the community (or even just staying connected with your members in a fun way) we would love to hear about it – please send details and links to us at community.partnerships@vincent.wa.gov.au. We also want to share and promote live stream lessons, workshops or other activities that the community can get involved in.

If your community group is experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19, you may be eligible for government support. Head over to our COVID-19 business support page for more information.

Personal Training and Group Fitness

All group fitness sessions can continue with a maximum of 20 persons per session. You must apply for a Personal Training and Group Fitness Permit in order to conduct training in the City of Vincent Parks and Reserves. 

Bookings for one-on-one personal training and groups of up to 20 persons are still being accepted and the City will be waiving all fees associated with personal training permits as part of our COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Strategy. Public Liability Insurance and proof of accreditation will still be required.
