NETBALL skills, learning about the game and having fun are all part of the No Limits program that starts later this month.

No Limits, run by Perth Netball Association (PNA) and Netball WA, is for people with an intellectual disability aged 11 and over.

Volunteer coach Monique Smith, of Cottesloe, said participants would learn basic skills and gain an understanding of the game during the six-week program.

Daglish sisters Rhianne and Jessica Bray, who attend Jolimont Primary School and the Sir David Brand School in Coolbinia respectively, have already signed up for No Limits.

At the end of the six weeks, the team of volunteers will put together a PNA No Limits team that will compete in the Association Championships over the June long weekend.

PNA President Elaine Clucas said No Limits had been on the Association’s agenda for a while and they were excited to implement it for the first time.

“We already have a band of volunteers ready to coach, manage and assist with training and now all we need are the participants,” she said.

The No Limits program starts on April 27 and runs every Thursday between 6pm and 7.30pm for six weeks at Matthews Netball Centre.
