The Netball WA (NWA) No Limits Netball Program is a participation-based program for individuals aged over 12 years old with an intellectual disability. NWA first launched the No Limits Netball Program in 2014, running a single 6-week pilot program in Rockingham. This pilot program attracted more than 100 participants and resulted in a competition carnival at the State Netball Centre with four teams competing against each other. No Limits has grown significantly over the past years with 10 programs now coordinated by various Affiliated Associations across the state. The 2021 Fuel to Go and Play Association Championships saw 9 teams compete against each other in the No Limits division, with Southern Districts Netball Association Red Devils team premiers for 2021.
The Marie Little Shield is an annual tournament that provides women with an intellectual disability the chance to compete at a National level. Named after disability netball pioneer, Marie Little OAM, the competition sees teams from each state compete. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Netball Australia made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Marie Little Shield event. Netball WA will be focused on coming back stronger for the tournament in 2022. For more information click below.
