I agree as the duly elected official I have read all conditions included within the current Bayside City Council pre-season training code of conduct and fully understand their meaning. The organisation agrees to abide by all of the conditions. The organisation has taken out insurance with the minimum $20 million public liability coverage in accordance with the code of conduct and agree to keep the policy current at all times during the term of this agreement, and any other Council approved period of use. I am aware that pre-season training allocation will not be provided to clubs that have outstanding debt with Council. I acknowledge that this application does not include the scheduling of a practice match. I understand penalties apply for unauthorised use of sportsgrounds. I am aware that allocations may be revoked at any time pending ground condition.
