No Limits Netball Program

The No Limits Program is a fantastic opportunity for participants with an intellectual disability aged 11 and over to engage with the sport of netball, meet new friends and play in a safe environment as part of a team.  This initiative involves a weekly netball training program, leading to participation in the Smarter Than Smoking Association Championships ‘No Limits’ Division held over the June long weekend at Perth Netball Association.

WDNA will potentially have 2 clubs that will be running a No Limits Program. All training sessions will be held at WDNA courts and clubs will combine to form a team or teams to compete against other associations at the Associations Championships.

Should you have any questions regarding the No Limits Program or require further information, please get in contact with Sarah East, Association Development Officer at WDNA on 9409 9950 or at development@wdna.net.au
