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.
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.

Shooting Stars is a not-for-profit program delivered by the Glass Jar Australia Foundation. Whilst the outcomes of the program are significant, they are not without cost. Shooting Stars has already improved the attendance rate of more than 200 young Aboriginal girls in remote WA communities and our aim is to grow this number to 2,000 over the next five years.
To achieve this, we need your support.
