Canteens at three of Shellharbour City's sports fields have been given an overhaul.

Almost $30,000 has been spent on refurbishing the canteens at Morley Park and King Mickey Park in Warilla, and Jock Brown Oval at Barrack Heights.

The upgraded canteens now have new cupboards, benchtops, sinks and freshly painted walls.

"It is a commitment of this council to upgrade our assets and infrastructure, and our sports facilities are high on that list," Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba said.

"We continue to work closely with our sport committee representatives to consult about future upgrades and understand the priorities of all local clubs."

Canteens next in line for an upgrade include the Albion Park Swimming Pool kiosk and canteens at the Croom Cricket Oval, Flinders Reserve and the Centenary training fields.

Meantime, the Lake Illawarra Little Athletics Club says new security doors installed by the council at the club's Myimbarr Community Park canteen appear to have brought an end to a series of break-ins in which thousands of dollars' worth of stock was stolen.

However, club registrar Kevin McGarry said the club was disappointed that the council had agreed to pay only half the club's insurance excess of $600 because it believed the break-ins in May and June were a result of the canteen not being fixed properly.
