Our Ambassadors

Through our partnership with the Australian Netball Players Association, 10 Suncorp Super Netball players have become champions of the Confident Girls Foundation. Their role is to inspire and uplift the girls we help. Some ambassadors run clinics, others take girls on tours or reward our amazing donors but they all work to make our netball community stronger and girls, more confident.
