Dear  ,    

 

T'was the week before Xmas and all through the US

Not a ball was a bouncing, no 'swoosh' through the net. 

 

Visions of center passes danced in Netballers' heads

Achievements made, the mystery of our favourite sport shed.

 

Netball America continues its assault on the States

With a brand new website and world class events.

 

Thousands of teachers have learned the game

With the aim it will see a true American birth again.

 

Couldn't have done it without awesome volunteers & VPs

Along with our sponsors and partners yippee.

  

By breaking new ground yet once again

We now have Netball included in core curriculums.

 

You can read about this and much much more

In the 2012 Presidents Message, so get ready to soar 

 

Go online when shopping this season

Remember charitable donations are also a blessing.


So spread the message loud and clear

You can find us on youtube, facebook and here!
 

Happy Holidays from all of us at Netball America!

10 STEPS TO A HEALTHY HOLIDAY SEASON  

1. Skip on the fatty hors d'ourves, go with fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

2. Drink plenty of water, even though the weather is not quite so warm our bodies still need plenty of hydration.

 

 3. Instead of a glass of bubbly, opt for a glass of sparkling water.  Drinking alcohol can lower your ability to say no to bad food choices.

 

 4. Enjoy the taste of something in small portions.

 

 5. Don't go to a holiday party on an empty stomach.

 

 6. Keep up your exercise routine or at least walk.

 

7. Share a meal with a friend, that way you won't feel like you have to eat the whole thing.

 

8. Laugh a lot.

 

9. Get plenty of sleep.

 

10. If your not feeling good, stay home!
