Sports Fields & Ball Diamonds

The majority of sports fields and ball diamonds within the OCDSB are allocated through the Community Use of Schools department.   Weather permitting, Ball Diamonds are available from May 1st – October 31st   and Sports Fields are available from May 15th – October 31st.  

As much as possible, it is our goal to honour historical bookings for returning clients who held permit for field and diamond use.  The deadline to submit renewal requests of returning/historic permits for consideration is February 22nd, 2019

Each year there are fields which are taken off line for field maintenance.  If your organization is affected by these closures we will work with you to try and find alternate site options.
