ACT State Teams - Marie Little Shield: Women aged 16 and older with an intellectual disability

Vision: Athletes will be supported on and off the court to strive toward individual skill development and building team cohesion at the Marie Little Shield National Tournament and beyond.

Enjoy the Challenge

Every year Netball ACT selects a team to represent the state at the Marie Little Shield National Tournament. Specialised coaches and support staff are also selected to support on and off the court and maximise the experience of each athlete.

A focus of the Marie Little Shield program is to provide women with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to represent their state at a national tournament. The program promotes skill development on court, personal growth off court and teamwork in match play. Above all, athletes are encouraged to enjoy the challenge.


To help offset the cost of attending the competition for our athletes, Netball ACT is running a fundraiser to support the team heading to Victoria this year.  If you would like to help, please visit our donation page via the link below.
