The 2014 FIDA football season kicked off on Sunday April 6th.  The Gippsland Power AA footballers had a season opening win playing away at Footscray by a convincing 35 points.

Having struggled to get wins on the board the past two seasons a win in Round 1 has been a massive morale boost for the side.  Contributing goal kickers were David Bowen, Sam Horner, Matt Keily, Jamie Brewington, Paddy Maurice and Steven Scholz . We welcome back Scholzy and newcomer Stephen Helmut to our team this year. It was a great team effort with an exceptional effort by Kelvin Walters who ran tirelessly for the four quarters.

Final Scores
Gippsland 9.12.66  Footscray 4.7.31

AFL Specialist School Clinics

In late March, GippSport’s Access for All Abilities partnered with AFL Victoria FIDA & AFL Gippsland sports development officers ran a series of four AFL clinics for the region’s specialist schools.

The 90 minute clinics ran in Sale, Traralgon, Leongatha & Warragul with a total of almost 200 students participating.  The students were taught basic handballing & kicking skills, but the highlight of the sessions was clearly the tackle & bump bag.
