Field Set Up

The setting up and packing up of the fields at Renown Park and the Green requires assistance from parents and players of our club.

Oatley Football Club is one of the largest junior sports clubs in the St George district. It is also solely run by volunteers. Committee members, coaches and managers do not get paid. Your help with tasks such as this will contribute to the club’s continuing success.

If you are playing first at Renown or The Green, please make sure you are there 45mins before the start of the game for U6 to U9 and 1 hour for Renown Main and The Green so that you can set up your field.

If you are playing last, please make sure you pack up your field after the game.

Please ensure that you leave yourself enough time to set up before the first game is due to start.
