Programs and Opportunities Available
Netball NSW’s Inclusive Community Grants program supports and encourages Affiliated Associations and Clubs to develop closer links with community groups and drive the engagement of new members. Netball NSW Affiliated Associations in 2019 can apply for a grant of up to $1,000.00 to deliver projects to engage diverse communities.
Your Club and/or Association can be more inclusive by offering the All Abilities Membership with Netball NSW. By offering the subsidised affiliation cost of $29.49, you can help reduce the financial barrier to enable people with disability to be a part of our game. All Abilities Players are defined as any person who holds a valid concession card for a disability pension and/or a member of Sports Inclusion Australia.
For more information on how to set up the All Abilities Membership type at your club/association, please email email@example.com
By providing opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in Netball, we are also introducing more people to the sport and promoting the benefits of an active and social lifestyle.
