Trafalgar Victory FC received feedback from one of its supporters this week, stating that they were having difficulties locating the 2021 GSL fixture. The club wishes to advise all members that the GSL fixture can be located on the league’s website: Link to GSL website.
In order to further simplify access to the 2021 GSL Fixture, a new link has now been added to our club’s homepage main menu, located on the far right-hand side.
Trafalgar Victory FC welcomes constructive and respectfully presented feedback. As a volunteer-run, community sports club, we aim to do the best we can to serve our members/supporters.
On Monday 22nd March Melbourne Victory FC held soccer clinics at the Trafalgar Primary School for grades 3 to 6 with the help of Stacey and Tanya from TVFC. All grades that participated, learnt basic soccer skills such as defending, attacking, passing and trapping the ball as well as enjoying playing games such as rob the nest. The students that participated on the day were given Melbourne Victory scarves when they returned to class. These initiatives are a great way to introduce kids to soccer and hopefully encourage them to play the sport.
Hopefully, the kids at Trafalgar PS enjoyed the experience, learnt some skills and loved playing the World Game. A quick reminder that Trafalgar Victory are entering teams in the following junior age groups: Under 6s, Under 8s, Under 10s and Undrer 12s. Soif your son or daughter would like to play soccer this year it’s not too late to do so.
For further details about the 2021 season please contact our MiniRoos Coordinator, Tanya Makins, on 0411 129 556.

Trafalgar Victory FC is running a summer training session for junior age players, aged 5-14, commencing next Tuesday 12th Jan from 4pm to 5pm. The program will be ongoing until the season commences, provided we have the numbers to sustain it. The sessions will involve some fun activities, skills training and of course games. Past and new players are encouraged to come and have a kick.
The training sessions will follow Covid protocols. Accordingly, parents are required to sign their child in on the registration sheet provided on the night. Hand sanitiser will be available and we ask that each child sanitise their hands before and after training. All equipment will be cleaned thoroughly before and after use. If you have any concerns please speak to the event coordinators at the event.
Parents wishing to help out with the sessions, or who may be interested in taking up a role as a coach or team manager this year, are encouraged to come along to the sessions. Even if you have never coached before but want to give it a try the club will support new coaches by enrolling them in Football Victoria training courses which are really beneficial plus our current coaches are always on hand to help.
More details will be provided regarding when the upcoming season will commence at a later date. However, TVFC can advise that Junior (U12 & U14) and Miniroos games will now be held on Saturdays under the Gippsland Soccer League which the club is now affiliated with. The club appreciates that this was a concern for parents last year due to a clash with other sports on Sundays, and felt it worth mentioning early in the year.
Coaches, Peter Court and Tanya Makins look forward to seeing as many kids as possible next Tuesday night for some fun and exercise. Parents are encouraged to contact Tanya on 0411 129 556 to express interest in coming to the training sessions. This way the club will be able to plan appropriately for participants, ensuring a positive experience for all.
With the challenges of season 2020 behind us, Trafalgar Victory FC has commenced planning for season 2021.
Boasting Gippsland’s best soccer pitches, new portable change rooms/showers and the confirmed construction of Trafalgar’s new multi-user pavilion, there could not be a better time to be part of Trafalgar Victory FC. Having invested so much time and energy into facility improvement, the club is now fully focused upon delivering the “best football experience” for every single member. Trafalgar Victory FC is committed to a smooth transition into the Gippsland Soccer League (GSL) in season 2021. We know that the GSL is our best and we cannot wait to be part of the action in season 2021.
In recent developments the GSL have announced the following game day details for season 2021:
- MiniRoos U6 – Saturday
- MinRoos U8 – Saturday
- MiniRoos U10s -Saturday
- Junior U12 – Saturday
- Junior U14 – Saturday
- Junior U16 – Sunday
- Junior U16 Girls – Sunday
- Men’s Resrves – Sunday
- Men’s Seniors – Sunday
- Women’s Seniors – Sunday
With the MiniRoos playing a localised hub model on a Saturday morning, there should be little change to what parents have experienced in the Latrobe Valley Soccer League (LVSL) over recent years. With the exception of travelling west rather than east.
Trafalgar Victory FC would like to field as many of the above teams as possible. However, player numbers will eventually determine which teams we field in season 2021.
Interested players are encouraged to complete an online “Expression of Interest” form: Link to form
Training is currently scheduled for February. However further details will be made available early in the new year.
If you have any questions about the upcoming 2021 season, please don’t hesitate to contact the club via our email firstname.lastname@example.org

On Wednesday the 2nd of December, Baw Baw Shire Council accepted the tender submitted by Kubale Constructions for the construction of the Trafalgar Multi Use Pavilion for the total sum of $2,491,970 (excluding GST) and;
- Allocated $250,000 contingency to the contract for use by the project manager to complete associated works on site including any latent conditions;
- Allocated $25,000 for the demolition of the existing boxing gym following the completion of the new pavilion;
- Allocated a portion of the anticipated project savings (borrowings) of $433,030 to assist funding Council’s $500,000 contribution towards the Longwarry Kinder Upgrade project; and
- Delegated authority to the CEO to sign and execute the documents required to award the contract.
Cr Darren Wallace advised TVFC that the build will take 10 months and should be completed by November 2021. Trafalgar Victory FC is delighted by the recent announcement. The club has lobbied for change rooms for several years now. Over the journey, TVFC has met with every individual Baw Baw Shire councillor, numerous council officers/directors, state members of parliament and federal members of parliament. It has presented its need for female-friendly facilities in the media, both print and television.
The final project is so much more than just a set of soccer changerooms. The multipurpose pavilion will support Trafalgar Victory FC, Gippsland FC, the Trafalgar Football & Netball Club, the Trafalgar Cricket Club and the Trafalgar Boxing Gym. The recently announced build is a huge win for the entire community. It represents a great example of what is possible when community and sporting groups work together for a common cause.
The recent announcement has been received with great excitement and considerable enthusiasm from past and present TVFC players and members alike. Like all stakeholders upon the Trafalgar Recreation Precinct, TVFC cannot wait for the project to commence, be completed and be made ready for use. The club wishes to thank all the user groups who have contributed towards this project, SRV for the funding and BBSC for their vision in investing in this major project for our local community.

Trafalgar Victory FC is delighted to share with its members and the wider Trafalgar community that Baw Baw Shire has successfully applied for a $500,000 grant from SRV’s Female Friendly Facilities Fund to secure the funding necessary for the construction of a multi-sport pavilion upon the Trafalgar Recreation Precinct. The club has been working with BBSC, the Vic State Government and members of the Trafalgar Recreation Precinct for several years now and cannot wait for the construction of this pavilion. What initially started as a request for suitable showers and changerooms for the soccer club has expanded into a much bigger project which will provide facilities for the Trafalgar Cricket Club, the Trafalgar Junior Football Club, Trafalgar Victory FC, Gippsland FC and the Trafalgar Boxing Gym.
Baw Baw Shire today posted the following statement on their website “This project will see construction of a new multi-sport pavilion at Trafalgar Recreation Reserve with female-friendly changerooms and amenities, umpire facilities, new storage facilities, dedicated first aid room, a boxing gym and social/flex space to cater for soccer and boxing participants. Externally the pavilion will feature public toilets, a veranda with outdoor spectator viewing space, a canteen, accessible car parking, connecting pathways and landscaping. The pavilion will address the immediate lack of facilities with participation tracking at 3.5 times the Victorian average (prior to COVID-19). The design has been developed with true multi-use flexibility and future planning in mind to service the five sporting clubs from different codes including soccer, cricket, football and boxing. This $3.2 million project is being jointly funded by a $500,000 grant from SRV’s Female Friendly Facilities Fund and the $2.7 million balance by Baw Baw Shire Council. Works will commence following the tender award, with delivery to take place over two-years. All works due for completion by mid-2022.”
Trafalgar Victory FC, whilst having a quality playing service, has for years lacked suitable shower and toilet facilities. Today’s announcement provides the club with much optimism and confidence looking towards the post COVID-19 period. The club wishes to thank Baw Baw Shire Council. In particular the East Ward councillors, Cr Darren Wallace, Cr Michael Land Cr Peter Kostos who have been very supportive of this project over an extended period of time. Thank you also to the BBSC Recreation Team, lead by Coordinator Recreation Shane Paynter, for their ongoing work on the sizable project. The club would also like to offer its thanks and appreciation to the other Trafalgar Recreation Precinct stakeholders. The project announcement is a win for all at the precinct and indeed the entire Trafalgar community.
It is hoped that the construction of the new multi-user pavilion will encourage more of our community to get involved with local sport. Trafalgar has a proud sporting history and today has plenty to offer its community. There are numerous well ran sports clubs available, all of which offer a great service to Trafalgar and the surrounding district.
