Warrnambool City Netball Association's new president Alison vandeCamp wants to keep building on the association's inclusive culture.
"I want to make this inclusive, I don't want it to be that you have to be connected with a club or anything like that," she said.
"Everyone is welcome, it doesn't matter what skill set you have, whether you're male or female or whether you're an all-abilities person as well, you're welcome out here."
The association has worked hard to promote male and all-abilities participation.
It's mixed netball competition in 2019 had plenty of boys and men involved as well as an all-abilities team.
It also has a strong juniors program, an area in which vandeCamp is passionate.
"Sport and juniors just go hand-in-hand...it's so good for their physical health and mental health," she said.
The association's new leader first joined the WCNA committee 20 years ago before taking a break to have children.
She returned about eight years ago.
"Since then I've been heavily involved in the junior competition and running NetSoGo as well," vandeCamp said.
NetSoGo is a junior program for those aged between five and 10 years old.
VandeCamp emphasised adult participation, for all ages, would continue to be on the agenda too.
"We've had enquiries from a few ladies over the age 65 who want to come and play walking netball," she said.
Walking netball is a version of the sport played at walking pace.
The new president knows she's taken on the role in a unusual time amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
But she's embracing the challenge.
"We've all got our trepidation but it's all getting used to it, once we've had our first round (of netball); I think that's going to ease us all," she said.
"We just have to live with this, so the quicker we get back into it and the quicker we get used to this as our normality, I think that will be fine.
"Obviously we've got to follow (coronavirus) processes."
She praised hard-working staff behind-the-scenes and the Warrnambool City Council for its efforts thus far.
The association is set to begin a six-week outdoor junior competition on November 5.
The president hopes to get adult competition going again next year.
"I think it's a blessing to start small and move up," she said.
VandeCamp praised outgoing president Val Bertrand.
"It was Val returning to save our association that probably got me passionate again committee-wise," she said.
"She did an amazing job."
VandeCamp, a nurse who specialises in mental health, was born and bred in Ballarat and started her netball career there.
She would end up playing for East Warrnambool in the Warrnambool and District league.
