Dear  ,    

  

Congratulations to Netball players across the nation.  Netball America was awarded a grant from the NFL team - the Atlanta Falcons.  Even though they missed out on playing in the Super Bowl we think they're a winner. Being recognized by such a high profile professional sports team is just another step to getting Netball national recognition.  The grant will be used to expand our GoGirlGo! Program across Atlanta.

 

February was a busy month - with weekly Netball clinics for New
