About

Shooting Stars is an initiative of Netball WA and Glass Jar Australia, which uses netball as a vehicle to encourage greater engagement and attendance at school of young Aboriginal girls living in WA’s remote communities and regional towns.

Working collaboratively with the local community, schools and service providers to implement a regular program of personal development activity and fun for young Aboriginal girls.

Participation in the program enables girls to have a taste of success to improve their self-image, develop hope and aspirations about their future, and provide motivation to attend school to achieve those aspirations.

What's On

Festivals, Cups, Galas, Matches and Competitions are just a few of the community events hosted or supported by the Shooting Stars program. In each region we work with the local Aboriginal community to bring friends, families, students and teachers together to celebrate culture, diversity and of course, netball.

Becoming A Supporting Partner

Shooting Stars is a not-for-profit program delivered by Glass Jar Australia. Whilst the outcomes of the program are significant, they are not without cost. Shooting Stars has already improved the school attendance rate of nearly 300 young Aboriginal girls in remote WA communities and our aim is to grow this number to 1,000 over the next five years.

To achieve this, we need your support.

You can donate now via the button at the top of the page, or become a partner of Shooting Stars today and be a part of the journey from its beginnings as we expand and grow the program across Australia, supporting thousands of young Aboriginal girls to get a better education.
