The Capital Spirit

The Capital Spirit is a franchise owned by Netball ACT participating in the Netball New South Wales Premier League Competition. The team was established to primarily represent the ACT and the Ngunnawal people, the traditional owners, and custodians of the land where the team is based.

The Capital Spirit proudly wear an Indigenous design on their dress, drawing strength from the Bogong Moth, a source of protein for Ngunnawal ancestors. The design was created by The Capital Spirit Indigenous athletes. The colours are taken from the Royal Bluebell (our state flower) and the Brindabella Ranges, it includes a meeting circle to represent our six districts, and the totems of three First Nations players to represent The Capital Spirit.

Established in 2020, The Capital Spirit also represents athletes from neighbouring areas in regional New South Wales. The Capital Spirit is an important part of Netball ACT's high-performance pathway and is currently the only non-New South Wales team competing in the Premier League.
