Dear  ,    

 

Wow!  What a great finish to the year - you certainly missed out if you weren't at the #1 Netball tournament in the USA - the CallidusCloud U.S. Open Netball America Championships!!  Read about it here.

 

Check out the video from the first 12 hours of the event.  Read here for a players view of the Championships. 
Be sure to catch up on all news below and the announcement for the 2014 U.S. Open. 

 

The highlight of the weekend certainly was the announcement (live from Belgium) of the 2016 World University Netball Championship being awarded to us right here in the USA.  Great work by the Netball America team and supporters across the globe who had been working on this bid round the clock since January.  Stay tuned........ 

 

It was amazing to have 240 people attend our 5 year celebratory dinner on Saturday November 9th in Atlanta, Georgia.  Thank you to our special guests the Honorable Margaret Giannini (Formerly of the White House) and US Olympian & Former NFL Chicago Bear - Bob Pickens.  

 

It was also an honor to have the Championships an official speaking event approved by the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.  Our youth who graduated from this program during the year were presented with their signed President Obama certificates by Dr. Jayne Greenberg, President's Council Member.

 

It was important for us to showcase the youth during the event so thank you to Pink Panthers, Mabry Middle School, Gems Juniors, Crusaders ATL Juniors, CANA U/23 and Grizzlies U/18.

 

As we celebrate our 5 year anniversary, we have put together a cool photo montage for you and your members to view.  You may even spot yourself in here!!  

 

Be sure to keep up with us on facebook and twitter as more photos and videos are released from the U.S. Open.

 

Happy Thanksgiving!
