Senior Lavington netballers Maddi Lloyd and Steph Clancy are passing their knowledge of the game on to the next generation of emerging players.
The pair have been running free clinics for youngsters aged between 13-17, with lockdowns now forcing them to take a virtual approach.
After missing the 2020 season, Clancy said it was way to help reignite junior players' love of the game.
"It's such a crucial age in netball," she said.
"Unless you're in a coaching role in Ovens and Murray, you probably don't get to share your knowledge as much.
"We just want to give back to our community and the people surrounding us."
The Panthers have now provided three sessions, with participants not only from the Ovens and Murray, but also surrounding leagues.

"Girls are always getting the right coaching from their leagues, but it's always beneficial for junior netballers to experience coaching from different people with different experiences," Clancy said.
After growing up in Walbundrie and initially playing in the Hume League, Clancy said she would have loved a similar opportunity to interact with senior Ovens and Murray players as a junior.
"For me, it wasn't until the Hume League started getting involved in interleague, because I lived too far out of town to do rep netball," she said.
"As a junior player, you always look up to senior players."
The Duo have also recruited other Lavington A-graders to help with the sessions.
