A word from a lifelong player…
“I played Netball since I was 5 years old. It really helped to make me the leader I am today. The sportsmanship taught me loyality and team work, ethics and hard work. I learned not to give up, to work towards a common goal, for the benefit of the team, and to remain positive in the face of adversity. Netball is an outlet which allows young girls to realize their strength and growth. I can’t imagine my life without it.” – Faye Hall, President, Phoenix Heat
A word from a new player…
“My name is Yara Gorashi and when I started playing Netball in my 8th year of school I immediately fell in love with the sport.”
