Community is responsible for the development of our players and game in Western Australia and five current West Coast Fever stars hail from grassroots netball in WA. Community is more than a pathway, it’s a key part of our audience, giving the game a purpose, a profile and for our Fever players to inspire and make them proud. Western Australia has over 220,000 participants connected to our great game, and members who contribute to the army advocating Suncorp Super Netball. This passion and desire to support West Coast Fever is demonstrated at every home game with thousands of members of the Netball WA community attending home games. In 2018, this advocacy reached new heights when Fever broke a national league record crowd of 13,722 fans packed into RAC Arena.
Fever Proudly Supports Shooting Stars
Shooting Stars is an initiative of Netball WA and Glass Jar Australia, which uses netball and other tools as the vehicles to drive greater engagement and attendance at school of young Aboriginal girls living in WA’s remote communities and regional towns.
In conjunction with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the our program was established in 2014, as part of the Indigenous Advancement Strategy, with a successful pilot program in Halls Creek.
