Football and netball teams are trying new methods to maintain fitness and social connection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While everyone has been encouraged to stay home as much as possible, some teams are providing unique training regimens to combat the downtime.
Edenhope-Apsley's A Grade netball coach Emma Ryan has begun uploading two training videos a week to the Saints' private Facebook group, encouraging players to follow her routine.
Ryan said the video was a more direct and personal method of motivating her players, and allowed for better coaching.
"I can sort of talk through the different techniques and that sort of stuff, do some coaching with it as well," she said.
"It's a really strange time at the moment, but I felt like that was a good way to help keep everyone motivated.
"I felt like it was a much more motivating way for girls to keep training than just typing out a session and posting that to the page."
Ryan said it was important to maintain fitness due to the unknown of when the football-netball season might return.
"I think it's really important that everyone stays super fit because it could change at any time," she said.
"They could just say, we will be starting in three or four weeks, and people might have slacked off and lost that touch, so we need to keep each other accountable."
Ryan said she was also willing to share her techniques and workouts with other clubs to help them navigate the unusual circumstances.
Ararat Storm and Greater Western Victoria Rebels footballer Isabella Simmons said it was difficult to stay motivated in isolation.
"When you are at training with the Rebels, there are all the girls around you so you're pumped up and motivated," she said.
"At home, it's very hard to get switched on."
Noradjuha-Quantong A Grade coach Fiona Rowe said the social connection via Facebook or similar websites was equally important.
"We all post stuff on there to try and encourage the girls to stay fit and keep up the ball skills," she said.
"We use the social media page to have a bit of banter, have a bit of fun and keep in touch, too.
"Because we're all so isolated now, it's important to keep that teamwork up, working as a team, catching up and pushing each other."
