Field Reservations & How to Schedule

Effective Aug. 1st, 2017, the City of Eldridge will no longer be taking field reservations for practices.  Field reservations will be taken for games, leagues, tournaments, team tryouts and special events, in which all will take priority over practices.  Field availability will be on a first come first serve basis and practices are limited to 1 1/2 hours.  If a field is prepped for a game, no practice will be held.

 

HOW TO SCHEDULE FIELD REQUESTS

Look through the calendar for the date and time that you want to make a reservation. If the field is available, email Julie Moore with the requested date(s) (if request is repeating, please include a start and end date), time and the field requested.  Reserved events are highlighted. Listed below are the fields available for reservation. In the email, please follow the format listed under each of the listed facilities (example: D1 4:30-5:30 PM Name). 

There is a reservation fee for all games, leagues and tournaments.  For all game, league or tournament requests, please contact Julie via email or by calling (563) 285-9561. Contracts for all game, league, or tournament reservations will be sent via email or should be picked up at the fitness center after contact is made with Julie.
