Suncorp’s five-year partnership with Netball Australia will support netball from a grassroots level, through to the national league and international representation with the Australian Diamonds.
Netball is Australia’s largest female participation sport with a growing fan and participant base, from club competitions on Saturday mornings to international elite competitions. Netball Australia is the national body for netball and incorporates the Australian domestic netball league, the Australian national netball team and the grassroots community program.
In 2016 Suncorp announced a national five-year partnership with Netball Australia. This included naming rights to Suncorp Super Netball and the introductory netball program, Suncorp NetSetGO, as well as major partner of the Australian Diamonds. In a new era for women’s sport, Suncorp and Netball Australia will work together to elevate the sport and empower girls and families to be healthy and confident.
The partnership also includes a growing customer program, with ticketing offers to Suncorp Super Netball and Australian Diamonds games and exclusive customer experiences.
#TeamGirls isn’t a slogan. It’s a movement. It’s a way of existing in the world. It’s girls having each other’s backs. It’s authenticity and loyalty. It’s girls standing united as a team on and off the court. On and off the field. In and out of the classroom. Online and offline. #TeamGirls is knowing that together, we are stronger. You better believe it. Be a #TeamGirl!
Rebecca Sparrow, author and #TeamGirls ambassador
Together with Netball Australia, Suncorp has launched #TeamGirls to promote and foster girls’ confidence through sports participation.
#TeamGirls powered by Suncorp, is all about girls supporting girls, on and off the netball court. We want to build a nation of confident girls that become confident women by encouraging them to build each other up, with the support of parents and families. With the help of our ambassadors and partners, Suncorp brings #TeamGirls to life in many ways, including:
Online resource for parents providing advice on building confidence in their daughter, with content from Australia’s leading mental health service for young people, ReachOut.com and our other #TeamGirls ambassadors.
Podcast series with author and #TeamGirls ambassador Rebecca Sparrow focusing on key issues impacting teenage girls and their confidence, and how parents can support them.
Together with netball legends and #TeamGirls ambassadors Laura Geitz and Clare McMeniman, we are bringing Fuel2Fly netball clinics to young girls across Australia, teaching them no only about netball but how to be the best version of themselves.
A non-for-profit organisation aligned with Netball Australia, the Confident Girls Foundation aims to provide opportunities for vulnerable girls to thrive through netball.
