2023 NAIDOC THEME: “For Our Elders”
As part of NAIDOC celebrations, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander netball players from across WA are invited to participate in the annual NAIDOC Netball Carnivals. Netball WA hosts four NAIDOC Netball Carnivals across the State: Perth, Mid West, North West and Goldfields NAIDOC Netball Carnivals. These carnivals are both an opportunity to introduce Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander netballers to competitive netball as well as a platform to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In 2023, the NAIDOC Theme is “For Our Elders.” Across every generation, our Elders have played, and continue to play, an important role and hold a prominent place in our communities and families. Netball WA invites you to join us in the 2023 NAIDOC Netball Carnivals to celebrate Our Elders.
