Join us on our journey to help provide greater access to nutrition education and physical fitness programs for youths and adults across the USA, while introducing them to one of the largest team sports in the world – Netball. Our aim is to encourage children and families to be physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and includes those with disabilities to ensure they feel part of their community. We have made it our long-term commitment to improve the lives of many individuals in our communities while helping fight childhood obesity and bulling, and creating healthy role models for today’s youth. The empowerment of youth is one of the most effective ways to achieve higher economic growth and better living standards among the millions of at risk youth in our nation. Our efforts have raised $100,000 in the past 2 years to help over 10,000 disadvantaged and disabled youth across America.

What We Do
Netball America, the premier national Netball organization in the USA, is dedicated to the development and growth of Netball in the USA. We are focused on showing how Netball creates an exciting atmosphere of participation and supports individual progress, team unity, good health and education of youth. Netball America seeks to have Netball included as part of the core curriculum for educational systems throughout the USA as a way of promoting good health and aiding in the education of youth. We run free clinics and education programs throughout the USA with the aim of getting the youth moving; reducing obesity; providing opportunities to underserved youth; as well as allow people with and without disabilities to participate in these programs together.
Netball is a team orientated sport, well suited to every ability level, played at any age by both males and females. It is a cost-effective sport to implement and maintain. You can learn more about Netball by watching videos here. We use sports as a tool for addressing the critical issues facing under-resourced youth, including childhood obesity, academic failure, and anti-social behavior.

Representative teams also perform at prestigious venues such as Madison Square Garden and STAPLES Center.
Special Needs Programs
The introduction of Netball to Special Need Programs will dramatically increase inclusion in the community by helping break down barriers that have historically kept people with and without cognitive disabilities apart. As Netball is an all inclusive sport, a wide range of positions allows different skills and abilities to be well catered for. Netball America recently showcased Netball at the Special Olympics Texas Summer Games.
