Dear  ,    

 

Just 3 years ago she was in a wheelchair and now she is part of Team USA Netball.  Catch the interview done by World University Games USA on our very own Vice-Captain Jordan Keen.  Also, a reminder, we have upcoming Team USA Netball trials in Philadelphia and Atlanta.  For more information click here. 

  US Open Logo

Given the overwhelming international interest in our Championships we have rebranded our Nationals to the -

U.S. Open Netball Championships. 

To celebrate this we have designed a ball specifically for the championships.  They will be available for sale at the event for $25, however pre-orders received prior to October 15 will receive a $5 discount per ball.  We've also been able to extend the early registration to August 31 for the U.S. Open so make sure you jump in quick as there are only a couple of spots left.

  

There are also some great specials and fundraising opportunities - whether you're interested in losing weight, toning up, helping the environment, need some flyers for your club or if you are an expatriate in need of a loan or a credit card then read below. 

 

I have recently been appointed to the Advisory Board for AUS Recruit.  I'm very excited about this opportunity and what it means for Netball - so read more about it below. Also check out recent Netball  interviews with 'Finding Houston'.

 

Even though it's been a rough few weeks with our member Lola being in ICU, on a good note, she proved the doctors wrong and our Lola is a fighter!! She was taken off life support last week and what a miracle that she is breathing on her own!! She's showing signs of movement in her legs and hands and has also opened her eyes!! She has a long recovery ahead and we all send her our thoughts and prayers.

 

We also have a new phone number: +1(888)221-3650, so please update your address books.

 

 

Yours in Netball

NEW PARTNERS
AUS Logo   
AUS Recruit's mission is to promote qualified high school student-athletes into the mainstream of American university sport recruiting - while offering American university coaches the opportunity to recruit Australian student-athletes for sport scholarships.

 

Why partner with AUS Recruit?  In the future, we want to be able to offer Netball scholarships as part of this program, however, in the short-term AUS Recruit is well connected throughout the sporting community in the USA, with connections to universities, coaches and athletes.

All of this will help benefit the growth of Netball in America.

 Aneika 

Our 50 young girls who participated in the Womens Sports Foundation GoGirlGo! Program in Atlanta were treated to a special guest - WNBA Atlanta Dream player Aneika Henry (formerly from Jamaica).  Aneika gave them words of encouragement and even played some Netball with them. We'll see Aneika courtside as we head to our WNBA Netball Showcase with the Atlanta Dream September 9th.  A big thanks to Crusaders ATL and Gems for taking the lead with this 8 week program.  You can watch a short video here of Aneika and the kids (note - these kids have only been playing Netball for 6 weeks when this video was shot).
