The Capital Spirit

Netball ACT has a rich history of developing talented netballers who have excelled along the national pathway. The introduction of The Capital Spirit into the 2020 Origin Premier League competition allows for the extension of elite pathway opportunities to members of the ACT netball community. 

The Capital Spirit was born from a snapshot of the rich history of Canberra. Looking within our region for recognisable components of our history and story as a community and settled on the iconic “Ethos” Status. Created by Tom Bass, unveiled in 1961, the 4m tall statue is located on the northern public entrance of the ACT Legislative Assembly Building.

Ethos is the characteristic spirit of a culture, era and community, manifested in its beliefs and aspirations.
