"Netball is Australia's most popular women's team sport and a huge push for inclusion in the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games.  It's great to see that Netball America is making great strides to introduce the game to youth in schools across America", says Jane Duke, Australian Consulate-General Los Angeles, California.  Jane will also be present at the event.

About Netball:
The biggest differences between basketball and netball – no backboard, no dribbling, no contact, 3 seconds to pass or shoot the ball and defending the person with the ball from 3 feet away.  A true team sport and great for co-ed play.
