Dear  ,   

 

Well what a national championships!! With 19 teams from 7 States (California, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington State), it was great to have a lot of new faces and the feedback is that everyone loved having the diverse competition.  A big thank you to  A-Game facility for hosting us at their world class venue.

We also couldn't have put on such an event without the players, umpires, coaches, volunteers and entertainers (Jane Leinecker- anthem; Michael Johns - God Bless America; Stephen Rowe, Troy MacCubbin, Dutch Suoninen & Jeff "Shakey" Fowlkes  - so a big thank you to all, including Uncle Mike for hosting our fantastic after party.  Please read below for updates and photos from the event.  More photos are available on facebook.

 

I was very excited to make two significant announcements at the championships: how Netball America was recently awarded the honor of sending the first collegiate USA Netball Team to the upcoming World University Championships in Cape Town, South Africa; and how San Diego United and Netball America will be hosting the 2013 World Netball Festival in San Diego, CA. So read below for more info.
