Mentor Programme and troubleshooting
Pigeon Racing Victoria offers all new Victorian flyers automatic mentorship and guidance. As it takes a little while to know the ins and outs of the sport each new flyer will be allocated two experienced flyers who will offer full support during the learning phase. This can entail youngsters as gifts and any
sort of trouble shooting advice. Please email for your allocation.
As a newcomer, there are a number of things to learn. Quite often the fastest way to learn is to ask someone who has been racing pigeons for a longer period of time. Similarly during the course of the year, newcomers will come across problems that are new to them. Our recommendation is that you ask a more experienced flyer for assistance. As part of the PRV mentor programe we assign an experienced flyer to every new flyer to offer guidance and help. Alternatively as a new flyer you can email PRV and we will offer advice as soon as possible.
The following video clips give three explanations of what the sport entails.

In Melbourne the VHA covers the suburbs from the north east to the south east and the central. The GMPF covers the eastern and south eastern areas. The VRPU covers the northern areas. Whilst the WPF covers most of the western suburbs. The VPO involves the north west areas. For specific contacts for different clubs please type the following into your web browser :
