Australia Post and Netball Australia are searching for local inclusion champions in the Australia Post One Netball Community Awards.
The Australia Post One Netball Community Awards recognise passionate coaches, umpires, players and volunteers across Australia’s netball clubs and associations who go above and beyond to make the sport of netball accessible to everyone and lead by example to inspire those around them.
Australian Diamonds player and Australia Post One Netball Ambassador Kim Green said the awards were about celebrating local champions who share the love of netball with everyone and welcome new faces into their clubhouses.
“Netball clubs and associations are the lifeblood of local communities, filled with passionate people promoting our sport and making it inclusive for everyone to take part, irrespective of their skill level, ability or background,” Green said.
“These awards will recognise these people from the sidelines to the centre circle and share their stories to inspire others to support more inclusive netball environments.”
Australia Post chief marketing officer Greg Sutherland said the Australia Post One Netball Community Awards would recognise and reward people whose work with netball clubs and associations is helping build better communities.
“Netball plays an important part in the fabric of our communities and the One Netball Community Awards recognises those local leaders that extend the games reach and impact,” he said.
“They will help build awareness of the value of diversity.”
Nominations are now open for individuals, netball clubs and associations who are actively creating positive change and inspiring others in the process.
