Swan Districts Netball Association benefiting from safety message partnership

 Netball  WA  is  delighted  that  our  partnership  with  the  Insurance  Commission  of  Western  Australia   (ICWA)  has  been  extended  for  2017.     The  ICWA  partnership  promotes  the  ‘Belt  Up’  road  safety  message  and  has  been  associated  with   the  netball  community  since  2014.     Since  then,  over  20,000  Belt  Up  netballs  have  been  provided  to  local  Clubs  throughout  the  State.     Thanks  to  this  partnership  in  2017,  each  senior  club  team  is  provided  with  five  Belt  Up   branded  training  balls.     The  Belt  Up  message  is  an  important  one.  Approximately  34  people  are  killed  in  road  crashes  in   WA  each  year,  while  not  wearing  a  seat  belt.  You  are  10  times  more  likely  to  be  killed  or  seriously   injured  in  a  road  crash  if  you’re  not  wearing  a  seat  belt.
