Netball For All

Netball Inclusion

Being inclusive is about providing a range of options to cater for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, in the most appropriate manner possible.

Below are several ways to encourage inclusion at your netball club. 

RESOURCES

The Netball Victoria Inclusion Policy aims to set a standard of equality and diversity within Netball Victoria and its affiliates.

The Australia Post One Netball website is the place to help you start your inclusion journey.

Netball Connect is a resource guide developed by Netball Australia to assist associations/ clubs in being inclusive.

This Netball Australia resource was developed to ensure that people with disabilities enjoy high quality experiences through the game of netball, by focusing on training for coaches, umpires and volunteers.

The All Abilities Netball Start Up Tip Sheet has been developed by members of the netball community for members of the netball community. It provides a starting point for those wanting to start an All Abilities program at their club or association.

This Inclusion Action Plan was designed by Netball Australia and the eight state and territory members, in partnership with Play by the Rules, to assist netball Clubs and Associations on their journey towards creating more inclusive netball communities.

This checklist provides a range of activities to help you promote inclusion in your club or association.

The 7 Pillars of Inclusion, created by Play By The Rules, looks at the common elements of inclusive practice across diverse population groups, including people with disabilities, people from multicultural backgrounds and Indigenous Australians. It also provides a great starting point for designing strategies to improve inclusive practices at all levels of sport.
