Since 2004, community sport on the Mornington Peninsula has significantly evolved and changed.
We’re seeing strong growth in junior and women’s sport participation, as well as an increasing need to create equity and inclusion to ensure our sports facilities are accessible to all in our community.
To understand and meet the changing needs of our sports clubs, last year we worked with them to hear what aspects can be improved to set a high standard of sports club management on the Peninsula.
As such, we’ve updated our Sports Club Management Policy to guide how we manage our sports and recreation groups and how we’ll be prioritising aspects like gender equity, accessibility for all and fair and equitable club fees.
We now want your feedback on this draft Policy. Your thoughts can help shape sports on the Peninsula for future generations.

Quotes attributable to Mayor Councillor Steve Holland:

“The draft Policy introduces several key changes to how we’ll manage and support our sporting clubs. These changes are essential to ensure we can provide fair access to sport for the whole community and deliver a clearer, more consistent, and improved level of service to our clubs.”
