Programs and Opportunities Available
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
