The Wimmera Whippets All Abilities Football Netball program began in 2014 and will be entering its fifth season in 2018. The WRSA have been the program coordinators since the beginning with the teams training every second Wednesday night on average at Coughlin Park in Horsham, which is the home of the Horsham Saints Football Netball Club. Ages are anywhere from 14 years old and upwards both male and female for both sports.

This page will have links to the training schedule, game days, registration forms, player handbook and the ability to buy Whippet merchandise.

The Wimmera Whippets are recruiting for both football and netball head coaches as well as any community volunteers that may be willing to assist in the 2018 season and beyond.
