Book a Sports Field
The order of priority for sport field allocation is:
- sports leagues (youth and adult)
- special events (tournaments, activity camps, and school events)
- occasional users (educational institutions)
Competitive games are given priority over practice games. Once leagues have been allocated fields, other users will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
A Sport Field Allocation Application must be submitted to the Recreation Services Division 30 days prior to the season start-up.
For special events such as tournaments, a Special Event Application must be submitted in addition to a Sports Field Allocation Application. It is best to submit applications as early as possible.
Before an allocation is finalized and a user is permitted access to a sports field, a formal agreement will be signed between the City of Corner Brook and the user. All responsibilities, terms and conditions will be outlined in the contract.
