About Us

Flagstaff Community Centre is home to Flagstaff Hill Cricket Club, Flagstaff Hill Football Club, Flagstaff Hill Tennis Club, Southern Hills Little Athletics, Happy Valley Netball Club, fitness@flagstaff, Flagstaff Athletics and the Rotary Club of Flagstaff Hill.

Located on a compact site with shared clubrooms, this thriving centre provides a welcoming sporting and social hub for the local community.

Our sporting clubs have been recognised by their governing bodies as some of the best in the state, both on and off the sporting field.

Constitution:

The Centre is constituted as an incorporated association and holds the head lease to the Flagstaff Community Centre and the recreation facilities on behalf of all the user groups.

The Constitution (2009) defines the governance of the Flagstaff Community Centre.

Local Council

The Centre acknowledges the support of the Onkaparinga Council and appreciates the cooperative relationship we enjoy.

Together the Centre Board, Management, Council and many volunteers and supporters work to continuously improve the facilities and deliver a variety of quality programs all year round.

The Flagstaff Hill Recreation Ground Plan of Management (2009) defines our joint goals.

Local Community

The Council by-laws allow for our member clubs to have exclusive access to the competition surfaces for practice and matches. Members of the public are always welcome to support these events and enjoy the facilities, hospitality and ambience.

When not in official use, members of the community are free to use either the oval or the tennis courts. The club rooms are regularly hired out for functions and special occasions.

Volunteers

The Management Committee and Centre Manager oversee operations of the shared clubrooms and are always looking for the right volunteers to fulfil a variety of roles that contribute to the smooth running of the Centre.

Opportunities exist in:

– Bar work;

– Cleaning;

– Maintenance and minor works;

Recipients of Newstart (55+) and Mature Age Allowance can use this volunteer contribution to fully meet activity test and Job Network requirements with Centre Link.
