Netball

The three major centres of the Kimberley (Broome, Derby and Kununurra) are well provided for with quality senior and junior netball competition by their respective Associations. Through their involvement with Netball WA and North West Netball Region the competitions are well resourced, accredited training courses are readily available and talented player opportunities are extensive particularly through the annual North West Championships and Academy programs.

Garnduwa has also established a close partnership with Netball WA and North West Netball Region to take the game into the remote communities as part of its Active Community Program.  Opportunity exists for community recreation officers and volunteers to be skilled by Garnduwa staff in the delivery of netball programs and competitions within their community and for Garnduwa to continue to provide the ongoing support needed to see local community competitions up and going.

Garnduwa also can set up small satellite carnivals that girls from remote communities can come together to play in usually while the boys are playing football.

Garnduwa does hold an annual development camp in the Derby region that girls from remote communities can come together to participate in that also involves the participation of Netball WA and gives opportunity for the girls to be selected into the NW Academy.
