Booking Sports Fields

City parks are available to book for a variety of sports practices and events. Organizations that would like to apply for regular use of City sports fields should submit a Field Use Request Application Form. If you would like to host a sports tournament in the City, please use the Special Event Permit Application Form.

The City gives youth sports first priority when approving use of fields and outdoor facilities.

The City gives priority (in the following order) to:

  1. Youth groups where more than half of the members reside in the Cowichan Valley, with scheduling priority for early evening timeslots.
  2. Adult groups where more than half of the members reside in the Cowichan Valley.
  3. Groups that have some members who reside in the Cowichan Valley, but less than half.
    All other groups.
  4. Historic users of the park are prioritized over new users where otherwise comparable (e.g. both youth groups).

Leagues, programs and events can apply up to a year in advance and confirm their availability to plan their season.

During periods of inclement weather, adjustments or cancellation of games on McAdam Park Playing Field are determined by City staff depending upon the condition of the playing surface, particularly during the months of November, December, January and February.

Please call Public Works at 250-746-5321 for further information on booking the fields. Additional bookings are based on availability.

Please review the Special Event Permit & Field Use Request Policy for additional guidelines.
