Booking Sports Fields

City parks are available to book for a variety of sports practices and events.

The City gives youth sports first priority when issuing Facility Use Agreements for 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.
4. All other groups.

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.

Residents who would like space for a spontaneous event, or practice may book a facility if it is available by submitting a Facility Use Agreement application.

During periods of inclement weather, adjustments or cancellation of games on McAdam Park Playing Field are determined by the Parks Foreman 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 City Parks and Facilities Booking policy for additional guidelines.
