Late season casual training inquiries
Due to the wet winter and large load of games and training, Yarra's sports grounds will no longer be available for casual/one off training for football teams outside Yarra until further notice.
Local clubs based in Yarra and already scheduled bookings will be accommodated as per bookings and their needs.
Affected grounds include:
- Victoria Park
- Loughnan Oval
- Brunswick Street Oval
- Alfred Cresent Oval
- Citizens Park.
