Sporting support

As well as the games, the Vixens and Netball Victoria will be hosting:

  • Netball clinics
  • Umpire and coaching courses
  • School visits

Players aged 5-10 can have a go playing netball at a NetSetGo experience.

Gippsland sports fans are having a fantastic start to the year, with a sell-out crowd at the Phoenix versus Taipans basketball clash last week - that blockbuster was also supported by the Victorian Government's Significant Sporting Events Program.

Inspiring the next generation

Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing said, "We're delighted to welcome the Vixens back to the Latrobe Valley and I encourage all netball fans to make it to the stadium. What better way to inspire our next generation of champions to take up the game and support the Vixens in their lead-up to the 2022 season."
