Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

An en­tire divi­sion cater­ing to women and girls with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­ity was es­tab­lished in the Ade­laide Metro Net­ball Divi­sion (AMND) over 30 years ago and con­tin­ues to be a sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment for their play­ers to this day. Last year, the as­so­ci­a­tion was named one of the win­ners in the Aus­tralia Post One Net­ball Com­mu­nity Awards for their ded­i­ca­tion to creat­ing an in­clu­sive net­ball en­vi­ron­ment, with Aus­tralian Di­a­monds player and Aus­tralia Post One Net­ball Am­bas­sador, Caitlin Th­waites, said the awards are a great way to share the sto­ries of those who open their net­ball club doors, wel­come new faces and use the power of sport to help com­mu­ni­ties work bet­ter for ev­ery­one. “We’re on the look­out for pas­sion­ate in­clu­sion and di­ver­sity ad­vo­cates

the court – from coaches and um­pires to play­ers, par­ents and vol­un­teers who work tire­lessly to con­nect peo­ple in their lo­cal neigh­bour­hood and drive an open and in­clu­sive en­vi­ron­ment through our great game,” Th­waites said. Nom­i­na­tions for the 2017 Aus­tralia Post One Net­ball Com­mu­nity Awards are now open and close mid­night AEST on Sun­day, 30 July 2017.
