Our partnership with Netball Australia

Bringing good energy to Netball Australia

As part of our commitment to help local communities thrive, we're thrilled to announce our partnership with Netball Australia. We're investing in Aussie netball at every level, from your local netty club to the Suncorp Super Netball League and beyond.

Most exciting of all, the Australian national team will now be known as the Origin Diamonds!

Netball Australia works tirelessly to bring more opportunities for young people in sport, particularly young girls and women. We can't wait to be a part of it.

We’re showing how all young netballers are raised on court

Raised on court

Being Raised on Court is about more than winning games. It’s where lessons are learnt, and rewards are taught. It’s where all good change starts. 

To demonstrate this belief, we're giving a junior netball team the once in a lifetime experience of being trained by Origin Australian Diamonds head coach, Stacey Marinkovich. Over 4 training sessions held during the season, Stacey will help the team hone their game, while also developing important life skills such as teamwork, leadership and resilience.

Origin Diamond for a day

As part of our Netball Australia sponsorship, we injected some ‘good energy’ into local netballing communities that have experienced hardship, through our Origin Diamond for a day program.

In this three-part series, each club received a visit from a past or current Diamond player to take them through a special training session so they can get a taste for what it’s like to train as a Diamond. The girls got the chance to ask questions, get tips and advice. Each day wrapped up with a surprise donation to the clubs – all funds going towards new equipment, court lighting and spreading more opportunity for kids to play. Check out what happens when we surprise bushfire-affected Broulee Netball Club in NSW, the Kybybolite Tigers Netball Club (a boarder-town team seperated by lockdown restrictions) and the Breakaways Netball Club in Hervey Bay in QLD.
