NICKELODEON RECOGNIZES NETBALL AMERICA
      
Another win for American Netball!  Netball America has recently received a grant from Nickelodeon Kids TV to further our disabled youth Netball education and physical fitness program in New York.  So stay tuned for more updates on this program.
 
Nickelodeon is an American basic cable and satellite television network that is operated by the MTV Networks Kids & Family Group unit of Viacom. Their animated series include shows such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and Power Rangers Megaforce.  Aimed mainly at pre-teens and teenagers their slogan is 'Putting Kids First'.  So it aligns perfectly with our Netball America Let's Move the Youth initiatives.
