West Coast Fever is Western Australia’s representative in the world’s premier women’s sporting competition, Suncorp Super Netball. Comprising four International representatives, as well as five West Australian born athletes, Fever is not only a competitive force in netball’s new era, but a true indication of the pathway to the elite level for athletes right across the state. Established in 2008, the Club possesses a rich history throughout its time at the very highest level of Australian domestic netball, including a maiden finals appearance during the 2015 season.
Current Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich became the first woman to both captain and coach the same team when she assumed the top job in 2015 and, as she prepares to enter her fourth season as Head Coach, continues to serve as a link between the Club’s proud past and its future of endless potential. Fever are strongly positioned to stamp their authority on the third season of Suncorp Super Netball, as the Club looks to write the next exciting chapter in WA’s sporting story.
Community is responsible for the development of our players and game in Western Australia and five current West Coast Fever stars hail from grassroots netball in WA. Community is more than a pathway, it’s a key part of our audience, giving the game a purpose, a profile and for our Fever players to inspire and make them proud. Western Australia has over 220,000 participants connected to our great game, and members who contribute to the army advocating Suncorp Super Netball. This passion and desire to support West Coast Fever is demonstrated at every home game with thousands of members of the Netball WA community attending home games. In 2018, this advocacy reached new heights when Fever broke a national league record crowd of 13,722 fans packed into RAC Arena.
Shooting Stars is an initiative of Netball WA and Glass Jar Australia, which uses netball and other tools as the vehicles to drive greater engagement and attendance at school of young Aboriginal girls living in WA’s remote communities and regional towns.
In conjunction with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the our program was established in 2014, as part of the Indigenous Advancement Strategy, with a successful pilot program in Halls Creek.
