Dear  ,   

 

August just keeps getting hotter for Netball America and nothing has got us as worked up as being selected as finalists for the Womens Sports Foundation Grants - the only thing missing is you and your clicks.  In less time than it takes you to make a cup of coffee, your clicks could enable Netball America to administer $15,000 in youth programs to children in Atlanta and Georgia.  So we need you to vote twice: here and here every day from now until  11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, August 31st.  Please post on your facbook, tell your friends, bribe your family - get the word out and click it forward as every vote counts.

  

If you missed the Jaguars and Firehawks showcase at the WNBA NY Liberty game - you missed something special.  Both teams were great to watch and the feedback from both event organizers and Liberty fans has been our best yet.  It's not too late the catch the West Coasts teams battle it out in LA Saturday, September 10th - get your tickets here

 

Netball America's Summer Camps are complete. Thanks to all those who have participated in these events over the summer.


Get ready for the hottest Netball event at the Netball America National Championships - registration is open here.

Congratulations to all players and volunteers for our successful event with the NY Liberty.  The East Coast Jaguars had a narrow defeat over the East Coast Firehawks - 26-21.  Click here for event photos.  Stay tuned for video footage and the Womens & Sports Entertainment Network interviews.

 

The youth from NYCHA and Mary J Blige's Foundation for Advancement of Women Now had a great time learning more about Netball.  Having England National Player Stacey Francis umpire and be a part of the event was a highlight for the players.  We also had special guests former Jamaican national player and coach Connie Francis and International Umpire Veronica Harris.  Also, a big thank you to Wendy Watt for singing the anthem.  Wendy is part of the new ABC show Karaoke Battle USA.  As the only NJ female finalist, the East Coast regionals will air August 26th at 9pm.  So look out for Wendy singing Black Velvet.
