Bell Park Sports Club offers football club memberships for juniors, men’s, reserves and women’s teams in Geelong. Our club sits on private land and unlike many other soccer clubs, does not receive maintenance assistance from Geelong City Council.
Current Bell Park Sports Club membership is as follows, with a building improvement levy of $50 included in all membership types:
What does football club membership cover?
Our soccer club is managed by very generous volunteers, who give their time to ensure we have some of the best football club facilities in Geelong. We’re proud to offer high-quality soccer pitches, kitchen, bar, change rooms and other amenities for everyone who visits Bell Park Sports Club – from players to referees, parents, spectators and corporate guests.
In order to keep our football club facilities in pristine condition and to meet the needs of all who use them, membership fees contribute to the ongoing maintenance of our club, including:
- building improvement
- grass cutting and grounds maintenance
The membership fee allows us to give back to our soccer club players and supporters, providing the facilities and amenities to support our growing numbers – including development of a new Geelong function room.
Please contact our soccer club to find out more about membership.

We cannot thank our volunteers enough for their generosity that ensures this fantastic sports facility remains open to the community. To be a member of Bell Park Sports Club, a membership fee is payable. It’s a small contribution, and to keep things in perspective – the total membership fees collected does not cover the cost of watering the grounds.
When you consider some of the additional overheads – grass cutting, power, insurance – then we hope you’ll appreciate the necessity of the membership fee and associated benefits.
If you have any questions or require more information about membership, please contact our soccer club.
