Marie Little Shield

Introduced in 2013, the Marie Little Shield netball competition provides female athletes with an intellectual disability the chance to represent their state at a national level.

The Marie Little Shield was named after Marie Little (OAM), a netballer who dedicated her life to those with an intellectual disability and is one of several diversity and inclusions programs run by Netball Australia.

Netball Australia’s national all-abilities event will take to Victoria in September as seven teams vie for the Marie Little Shield title.  

Presented with Visit Victoria as the Official Event Host Partner, the 2023 edition will be contested at Waverley Netball Centre across three days from Friday 15 September.
