Don't ask Netball Queensland for a participation ribbon

NO longer will Queensland netball carnivals feature lower ranked players as the peak body takes the lead in cutting out the "everyone wins a ribbon" culture.

Netball Queensland CEO Anna Carroll said the changes to the Suzuki Challenge Carnival was about recognising the top talent.

"Not everyone can be selected in a representative team and to provide three different levels of rep honours is not only catering to that 'everyone gets a ribbon' culture, but doubling up on the events we deliver," she said.

"It categorically does not stop participation and it does not prevent opportunity."

Carroll said the Suzuki Challenge Carnival will allow only one team instead of two to be nominated in all age groups except the 12 and under division.
