Aligned Leisure appointed to manage City of Casey Leisure Facilities

The City of Casey has appointed Aligned Leisure to manage its new Leisure Contract for seven of the City’s leisure facilities, which have a combined annual visitation of over 3.5 million people.

From 1 July 2024, Aligned Leisure will manage Casey ARC, Casey RACE, Doveton Pool in the Park, Casey Stadium, Endeavour Hills Leisure Centre, Olive Road Sporting Complex and The Shed Skatepark.

Last year, the council announced its plans to streamline the management and operation of these facilities, which are currently managed by three separate partners across four separate contracts or service agreements, leading to operational inefficiencies.

City of Casey Acting Chief Executive Officer, James Collins said Aligned Leisure is a highly capable, community-focused organisation that has a proven record in facility management and community activation.

“We are very pleased to partner with Aligned Leisure, who are a leader in the aquatics and leisure industry and currently operate 41 facilities across Victoria and New South Wales,” Mr Collins said.

Aligned Leisure will deliver innovative, inclusive, high-quality programs within the facilities and out in the community, which will significantly enhance member experience and have a positive impact on the community.

“Our leisure facilities are highly valued by the community and play a vital role in improving the overall physical, social and mental wellbeing of our residents and visitors.”

“Thousands of people visit Council’s leisure facilities every day and increasingly, our venues are also being chosen to host national and international events. Having a number of different management contracts, with a number of different providers, is not efficient for Council and means the experience for users of those facilities is not always consistent.”

Aligned Leisure Chief Executive Officer, Shane Dunne said they are delighted to have been entrusted by the City of Casey to manage these seven vital leisure facilities.

We are deeply committed to enhancing community well-being through exceptional leisure experiences. This partnership underscores our dedication to delivering high-quality services that benefit residents of all ages and backgrounds.

While we eagerly embrace this new opportunity, we remain steadfast in our commitment to our current partners.

Shane Dunne, Aligned Leisure CEO

Mr Collins thanked the current managers of Council’s aquatics and leisure facilities, YMCA Victoria, Skateparks Australia and Casey Netball Association, for the service they have provided to the Casey community for many years.

“Council’s top priority is to work with the current facility managers and Aligned Leisure to ensure a seamless transition for members and visitors to ensure they can continue to utilise Council’s fantastic facilities in the same way they always have,” he said.

All members, existing staff and stakeholders will be contacted in the coming weeks with specific details on the transition and next steps.
