The 2014 VACSAL Junior Football and Netball Carnival began this morning at the Darebin Community Sports Centre in Reservoir. Netball Victoria would like to encourage everybody to make the journey and spectate tomorrow’s finals.


The Victorian Aboriginal Community Services Association Limited (VACSAL) strengthens communities and culture by offering government funded programs. Established in 1984, VACSAL is committed to equality and determined to empower individuals from Aboriginal communities.


The carnival is an event that promotes cultural ties, family participation and healthy lifestyle. In addition, it provides football and netball players the opportunity to showcase their talents.


Madison Robinson, an International Australian netball player, held a clinic at the carnival today. “This tournament is a great opportunity for communities to come together and celebrate the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. It’s a fantastic tournament and it was great to see so much talent on the netball court today” said Robinson.


Netball Victoria is proud to be a part of the VACSAL state-wide Football Netball Carnival as the peak state body for netball and hopes to continue this relationship for years to come.
