James Glen from the Halberg Foundation has very kindly accepted our invite to come to the Netball Northern Zone office at Trusts Arena Henderson on Wednesday 1st February from 10.00am to 11.30am to do some Inclusion Training.

The Halberg Inclusion training is a professional development opportunity which aims improving participants knowledge and understanding around the inclusion of participants with disabilities in sports and recreation. This session will focus on increasing disability knowledge, improving processes and procedures that impact participants getting into and staying in Netball and assist the clubs in creating programmes that suit the needs of their community. It will also allow centres to connect in with the Halberg Foundation, connect with Centres to share knowledge and initiatives underway and access further bespoke assistance after the training. 

All Centre staff/volunteers are invited to attend.  We will provide morning tea at the conclusion.  Please RSVP by Friday 27th January via email to centrerm@netballnorthern.co.nz.
