Corangamite Shire stadiums to come under new management

Following a review of the stadium operations, YMCA Ballarat has decided to exit the management of Camperdown Community Stadium and Timboon Sports Centre when the current contract ends on Sunday 30 June.

The YMCA has managed both facilities for over 10 years, working proudly alongside Council, the committees of management, sporting associations and user groups, supporting each to provide excellent sporting programs to the local communities.

“The YMCA is working closely with Council to make sure residents and schools can still access the venues and sport can continue to be played,” Craig Mathieson, YMCA Area Manager – Community Recreation, said. “The YMCA and Corangamite Shire Council will work together to ensure a smooth transition for customers attending both Centres.”

Council Acting Manager, Facilities and Recreation, Jane Hinds, said, “These are great community assets and will continue to be so into the future. Council is committed to the health and well-being of the community and will continue to provide opportunities for people to lead active lifestyles.”

“We have had a longstanding relationship with YMCA, but now it’s time to work with sporting associations and other groups who use the facilities and work out the best way to deliver the recreation opportunities they want.”

Any enquiries can be directed to the YMCA via email to Camperdown.st@ymca.org.au or timboon.sc@ymca.org.au
