Dear  ,    

 

What an amazing month for Netball all across the USA.  Did you catch our ESPN coverage here or the coverage from the highest authority for global university sports, International Univeristy Sports Federation here and the media coverage we received in South Africa. Be sure to stay tuned to our facebook as daily Netball updates are posted.

 

Congratulations to Team USA Netball - read below about the success they achieved in South Africa.  Listen here on itunes to the Team USA Netball theme song 'River of Life' by Michael Johns.  If you missed last months newsletter with the beautiful backstory to this song, you can read about it hereWatch the reactions from the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls as they hear and sing this beautiful song alongside our Team USA athletes.

 

It took a fantastic team to pull off this amazing trip in which we were able to fundraise and obtain sponsors so the athletes weren't out of pocket. So a big thank you to all who supported.

 

We've also been able to extend the early registration on Nationals so make sure you jump in quick as only a few spots left.
 
There are also some great member specials this month so read below.  If you are an expat and in need of bank and loan services then don't miss what Advancial can offer you.

 

I ask everyone to keep in their prayers one of our members, Lola (Redballers Netball Club), who is in ICU on life support.  We pray for strength for her family and will keep everyone updated on f/book.

 

 

Kind Regards
