Pride in Sport

Netball ACT Position Statement on LGBTQ Inclusion

Netball ACT proudly stands as a 2023 Pride in Sport member, dedicated to fostering a safe, enjoyable, and inclusive environment for all, irrespective of diverse sexualities and genders. Our commitment aligns with our core values and mirrors the rich diversity of our local communities.

We maintain a strict zero-tolerance policy against any form of bullying, harassment, or vilification directed at individuals with diverse sexualities and genders, including homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia. Our passion lies in promoting happy, healthy, and active lives, celebrating diversity across sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, culture, ethnicity, and more.

In our sport, there's a place for everyone, just as you are. At Netball ACT, we are continuously learning and evolving. As we expand our knowledge, we will update this page with additional resources and information, and we invite you to join us on this enlightening journey.
