I would love to see uniforms where there is a choice. Shorts and tshirt (which is identical to the design of the dress) would easily work. I’ve seen in the Uniting Church comp in Adelaide (which is huge) uniforms where long sleeves/tights as well as headscarves are part of the uniform. It doesn’t make an iota of difference to the opposition but means that girls from all backgrounds can play. I got emotional seeing it.
Completely agree AllieC! In the Fremantle competition in WA, there is an Islamic College who play and all of the girls wear long sleeves, long pants and headscarves. The other players do not mind, and it’s great to see them playing. They played against a junior team from my club, and during the game, one of the girls headscarves began to fall off. The girls from my junior team all stood around her and blocked her so that she could fix it and continue to play, and it was one of the most amazing moments I’ve seen on a netball court.
Definitely all for inclusive uniforms!
