Training Ground Information

Welcome to the Training Information space. Please come back and check this page for updated information as the season progresses. Updates for the 2024 Season will be added when available

Training Ground Allocation (Pending update for 2024 Season)

Coaches, the training schedule for both Ruddock Park and Oakleigh Oval will be posted on this page when it is available. If your team is not listed here, please send an email to and include the following information (preferably provide a couple of options).

  • Your Team’s Age & Division (eg: U6 Red C not “U6 Emus”)
  • Preferred Day (Tues, Wed or Thurs)
  • Preferred Start time and duration.
  • Your preferred Oval (Ruddock Park should be used for U8s – U11s & AA teams; and Oakleigh Oval used by U6s, U7s, and U12s to Super League).

Please note that Oakleigh Oval is usually very busy for training nights. All teams are encouraged to consider training at Ruddock park if possible.

Baseball Diamond at Oakleigh Oval

Please stay off the baseball diamond AT ALL TIMES. The Baseball Club have invested a lot of time, effort and money into improving their diamond for the summer months and it is essential that respect that. If you see any kids playing on the diamond, please ask them to move away.


The floodlights at Ruddock and Oakleigh are scheduled to come on 15 minutes prior to the first training session of the day (or 5 pm, whichever is later) and then turn off automatically 15 minutes after the last scheduled team to train.

If there are any issues with the floodlights, please contact one of the Committee Members.

Note that if the floodlights are turned off, they can take up to 15 minutes before being able to be turned back on again.
