The Wimmera Whippets All Abilities Football Netball program began in 2014 and will be entering its fourth season in 2017. 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.
