Shooting Stars works in some of the most remote and regional locations in Western Australia. Our Program engages more than 350 students in eight schools across the State.
Shooting Stars is an educational program that uses netball and other vehicles to drive its primary vision of increasing school attendance rates for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) girls living in remote communities and regional towns to 80-90%.
Shooting Stars works collaboratively with the local community, schools and service providers to affect genuine change in the lives of more than 350 students Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls.
Importantly, the program produces results. More than 25% of participants improve attendance term on term, while 50% of participants maintain an average attendance rate of 80% or above. Furthermore, Shooting Stars is a key driver in creating equality for female leaders and generational change, with 85% of its staff and 66% of its Board identifying as Indigenous.
Shooting Stars enjoys the backing of the governing body for netball in Netball WA, and with that support comes nearly 100 years of professional expertise in community programs and development, as well as the National Indigenous Australian’s Agency, in addition to numerous other organisations.
