The Marie Little Shield (MLS) is a netball competition for women with an intellectual disability, giving these athletes the chance to represent their state at a national level.
It was introduced back in 2013, and has become a highlight of the annual Australia Post One Netball calendar.
The MLS was named after Marie Little (OAM), a netballer who dedicated her life to those with an intellectual disability. It’s one of several diversity and inclusions programs we run alongside our partner, Australia Post. The message is that anyone, regardless of background or ability, is welcome in netball.
