GEORGIA McCormick jumps in her car every Thursday throughout netball season and drives 50 minutes to training.
The Warrnambool-based physiotherapist, who grew up in Mortlake, said the commute to Woorndoo was about giving back to the farming community.
McCormick, 27, coaches Woorndoo-Mortlake's A grade team which will push for its fourth consecutive Mininera and District league premiership on Saturday.
She said defeating Glenthompson-Dunkeld and securing a four-peat would be special for Tiger supporters.
"I think it would mean so much for our club and our community, being such a rural town that Woorndoo is," McCormick, nee Muir, said.
"Being so successful would be fantastic because we have a lot of people who come and support.
"A lot of the other clubs are very envious of our supporters because the boys (our footballers) dress up in netball dresses and they get right into it.
"It would mean a lot for us as a playing group but more for the community. It brings everyone together.
"The only thing in Woorndoo is the football oval, that is where everyone goes on a Thursday night and has dinner and on Saturdays."
McCormick played her junior netball for the Tigers before stints with Hampden league clubs North Warrnambool Eagles and Camperdown.
The goal keeper then spent time in Melbourne studying before returning to Woorndoo-Mortlake six years ago.
She's been coach for the past four seasons.
"I am originally from Mortlake and my dad (Craig's) family has been heavily involved in the club," McCormick said.
"I am quite lucky, our A grade team is very close and we're all friends off the court so it makes it easy to go and play each week.
"My husband (Richard) plays footy there and my dad lives in Mortlake so we stop at his place and have tea on a Thursday night."
Woorndoo-Mortlake's stranglehold on the premiership will be tested at Lake Bolac on Saturday.
The Tigers' opponent, the Rams, had their measure in the second semi-final, winning 61-29.
"They're the benchmark team for the whole season," McCormick said.
"We've played them three times and they've won pretty convincingly.
"We will definitely be embracing the underdog title on the weekend but as we know with finals, it's anyone's game.
"Our C grade side are in the grand final too and they have played in the last three like we have but are yet to win so hopefully they can go one step further."
McCormick will use her profession - she works at Warrnambool Physiotherapy - to ensure her players are at peak fitness.
She had her job had pros and cons when it came to netball.
"The flip side of it is sometimes I see my teammates playing when they shouldn't be," she joked.
"But it's definitely handy, particularly coming into finals, being able to make sure everyone is 100 per cent."
McCormick said 2019 had been a positive season across the board for Woorndoo-Mortlake with its senior football team enjoying a spike.
"They made finals for the first time in 17 years which was really exciting," she said.
"Only a couple of years ago they were losing by 200 points so it's been a good turnaround."
