Associate Members

In 2018 we saw significant change in the membership and governance structure of Netball WA. The 2019 season marked the beginning of the Netball WA Regional Office structure, and the Association Tier system of membership, and the new Associate Membership type.

This membership type allows the inclusion of new entities into Netball WA’s membership, and suits a variety of organisations, from Football & Netball Leagues, to other netball supporting organisations.

For Associations that did not reach the requisite 50 members to reach Tier 3 during the previous year, an Associate Membership will be the membership option to ensure that they stay engaged with Netball WA and can access servicing in 2020.

Please click below to fill out the 2021 Annual Association Affiliation Agreement form for existing Associations and Associate Members. If you are a New Association or your membership has lapsed, please contact Adam at membership.metroadmin@netballwa.com.au

  through the same, or another, Association for the winter competitions;

  commencement of the competition. This will ensure these NEW members receive insurance coverage;
   -All current Netball WA members are registered for the Short Season competition as a Secondary registration. Members already 
    affiliated with Netball WA WILL NOT be charged a second affiliation fee however, we do require their secondary registration so an individual’s full playing history can be recorded;
