Each year, Netball Victoria selects two underage state teams to compete in the National Netball Championships run by Netball Australia.
The program provides an opportunity for development in a 12-week program for athletes, coaches and umpires.
The Melbourne Vixens franchise was launched in 2008, following the amalgamation of the Melbourne Phoenix and Melbourne Kestrels elite netball teams that participated in the pre-existing National Netball League Competition (1997-2007).
The Melbourne Vixens compete in Australia’s premier netball league, Suncorp Super Netball.
The Melbourne Vixens proudly represent Victoria’s governing body for netball in Victoria.
