Club responsibilities

When Council determines that grounds are open users remain responsible for determining the suitability of grounds for use of individual grounds in terms of player safety and potential ground damage and are requested to exercise discretion in the event of any wet weather.

If sportsgrounds are closed by Council, clubs and organisations do not have the authority to approve their use.

Council’s decision on whether to close a sportsground will be based on the likelihood of injury to players, the likelihood of damage to the playing surface and the prevailing weather forecast.

If Council’s ground closure instructions are ignored and play goes ahead, the user will be responsible for the full cost of repair to the field(s) and their usage arrangements may be terminated.

Even if Council deems a sportsground to be open at 12.00pm on Friday, clubs and organisations don’t have to play if rain occurs later that day or during the weekend and injury to players or damage to the sportsground becomes a possibility.

If you aren’t sure if a sporting ground is open you can check the
Sports Ground Closure page on Council's website
(click logo, above) or phone Council’s Ground Closure Information Line (listed above).

Cumberland Council logo & link
Before using any sportsground, to confirm that it is open and available for use you can check the website (click logo) or phone Council’s Park Closure and Wet Weather Line. In periods of wet weather sportsgrounds can be closed in mid-week at short notice. The Park Closure and Wet Weather Line is updated each week day by 12.00pm.

To check if sports fields are closed following periods of rain, Council has a special Wet Weather Line - 9294 8586, that is updated at 3:00pm weekdays and before 7:00am on Saturdays.

The use of Council's sporting fields following significant rainfall can damage the playing surface and create safety concerns. To ensure that sporting fields are maintained to a good condition it is necessary for Council to temporarily close sporting fields until they are again suitable for use.

Sporting users and hirers must observe the closing of the sporting fields, as they are liable for the cost of rectifying any damage as a result of use during periods of wet weather.

When Council closes a sports field it remains closed for that night and the following day until closure information is updated again in the afternoon. Sporting user groups are encouraged to monitor the wet weather line daily as grounds can remain closed for several days after the rain event. Sports field floodlighting is not operational when the fields are closed.

MPIO

Member Protection Information Officer

Greystanes FC has a Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO). The role of the MPIO is to be the first point of contact for anyone with an enquiry or concern about a member protection issue.  The MPIO is a sounding board for these concerns and can offer information on complaint resolution, policies and other aspects of the issue being discussed. 

The MPIO does not offer advice, suggestions or recommendations and the MPIO does not investigate complaints or reports.  It is the responsibility of the Club (President and/or Executive) to decide who investigates complaints or reports but it should never be the MPIO who conducts the investigation.

Member Protection encompasses several areas: Harassment, abuse, victimisation, racial vilification, child protection and bullying. Any matters outside of this scope are not member protection matters.
