In a couple of days Netball America will hit the Prudential floor for the WNBA New York Liberty showcase on Saturday July 30th at 6pm. Check out your rep teams .
There's still time to support the team - buy a ticket today or buy a ticket for an underprivileged child to attend as we are sponsoring girls from the NYC Housing Authority and the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN). FFAWN, a charity organization founded by singer-songwriter Mary J. Blige and music executive Steve Stoute, is dedicated to helping women overcome personal challenges, break persistent barriers and realize their ultimate potential.
We are also excited to announce that Wendy Watt will be performing the anthem for our netball fans at this event. Wendy has performed at venues such as the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. You will also be able to catch Wendy on ABC this August as the NJ State Finalist in "Karaoke Battle USA".
Netball America is excited to be working with the New York City Housing Authority participating in local summer camps throughout all 5 boroughs. The first summer camps kicked off in Brooklyn on July 19th and 20th. There will be over 10,000 kids attending these camps throughout the summer.
As part of the 'Let's Move the Youth' Enrichment Initiative Netball America is proud to have received 2 grants to fund new education programs. This is a big win for Netball and a big win for Crusaders Atlanta Sports Club and Emerald City Netball Club as they will be receiving funding to roll out our programs.
