Vicsport Talks #1 - A New Pathway

Join us for a free coffee and light breakfast and hear from the people driving innovative approaches to getting less active people involved in sport and recreation.

The theme in this event is 'a new pathway'. Hear about two social sport products creating entirely new pathways for participation in sport.

Two talks will be presented by:

  • Netball Victoria – Rock Up Netball

In just three years Netball Victoria has created a new pathway for over 3,000 less active women and girls to participate in a more social form of netball. Delivered through a license model, Rock Up Netball is already available in 19 locations. Find out what makes the program a success and how Rock Up Netball is increasing overall participation in netball.

  • Hockey Victoria – J-Ball

J-Ball is a brand new social version of hockey developed by Hockey Victoria (HV) in partnership with VicHealth. J-Ball is a new social version of hockey played on a smaller field six players per team, modified rules and no requirement for shin-pads, mouthguard or any other protective gear. With 91% of participants new to the sport, J-Ball is tapping into an entirely new market of participants and increasing participation in hockey.

This event is supported by VicHealth.
