Netball America is very excited to announce our 2 newly appointed Vice Presidents as well as an extremely talented addition to the Education and Coaching Committees!  Welcome to the family!


A big thanks goes out to San Francisco Stars for hosting the Annual General Meeting and Nationals.  The weather couldn't have been more perfect and we received many great ideas and feedback from all who attended.  Members can email us to obtain the minutes. 


We couldn't have done it without our generous sponsors, Wellness in Total University.  Be sure to check out their website to see how they can help you optimize your netball performance and keep you Netball trim during the silly season.   


Congratulations to the overall tournament champions - San Francisco, who proved too tough to beat on their home ground, taking home the Netball America Cup and the National Win With-U Ladies title.  

The competitiveness in the mixed pool saw Nashville Kangaroos defeat the San Fran Mixed team to take home the National Win With-U Mixed Trophy.  

Don't forget to help spread the word about Netball - forward this email, join our facebook, twitter and encourage your club members and friends to do so also.  


Happy Playing!

San Fran Stars
Join us in congratulating the San Francisco Stars for taking home the Netball America Cup and the Win With-U Ladies championship title! The Mixed Win With-U championship title belongs to the Nashville Kangaroos.  Alex Dunn from the Stars was the MVP for the tourney - she hardly missed a shot all day. Other results:
Ladies Runners-up: LA Waves
Royals shooting 
Mixed Runners-up: San Fran.




Thanks to all those who travelled far and wide not only across this nation, but a huge effort from The Royals who flew from Sydney, Australia to participate! 


This event wouldn't have been able to happen without the efforts from the organizers, umpires, scorers, timekeepers, players, volunteers and of course the fans.  So thank you to all!  More photos will be uploaded to the gallery shortly!

Umpiring evaluations and exams were conducted throughout the tourney - a big congratulations to George Colvin from San Francisco for passing the practical part of her C Badge exam.

ALOHA!! Netball America's President, Sonya and Director, Steve paid a visit to its members - the North Shore Netball Club in September.  After a wonderful tour of the BYU-University Campus it was time to go over key coaching and umpiring points. 

Netball America's mentor program in conjunction with the hard work from Moana and Zoia has been helpful for the club - now they have equipment, sponsors, the club was entered in a Honolulu tournament earlier this year and the team did well.  Email us  if you are going to catch some waves in Oahu and want to play some Netball!  We are also working on getting a team going in Maui.

Texcas Convention: A reminder for those in Texas wanting to help at the State teachers conference on December 1-3, to contact us.  Don't forget to check your employer's volunteer policy as a lot of companies offer time off or other benefits for volunteering for a not-for-profit.
Winners Sports Club: Sign up now for the 1st Male Netball Championship November 19-21.  Please visit our calendar for further information.

Happy Playing!
