WorkSafe Country Netball League  

Netball Victoria is very proud to continue its long term partnership with WorkSafe Victoria through the WorkSafe Country Netball League (WCNL) – with 2019 being the fourteenth year of the partnership. The message of workplace safety is particularly important in these regional areas where the prevalence of workplace injury and death is far too high.

Netball Victoria and WorkSafe Victoria would like to thank every club and league for their support of this partnership and assistance with the delivery of these important WorkSafe messages.

This below information outlines the benefits and obligations attached to this partnership which are provided to and required of all clubs and leagues participating in the WCNL.


All leagues and clubs affiliated with the WCNL must agree to comply with and promote WorkSafe Victoria’s message of workplace safety.

Leagues and clubs should liaise with Netball Victoria’s Partnerships team prior to securing any additional sponsors to ensure they do not conflict with the WorkSafe message. Please contact the Partnerships & Marketing Coordinator at Netball Victoria – Ph. (03) 9321 2212.

Leagues and clubs that do not comply with the sponsorship obligations outlined in the WorkSafe agreement shall:

  • Receive counselling from Netball Victoria
  • Be given a written warning from Netball Victoria
  • Lose their WorkSafe sponsorship benefits
  • Be removed from the WCNL

If your league/club has any concerns or queries regarding the outlined sponsorship obligations, please contact Netball Victoria immediately on (03) 9321 2212.
