#BASKETBALL VIDEO WATCH as .@bballengland finds HerMoJo with #ALLGIRLS

12:00 - join Patricia Fairclough pitch-side with 'All Girls'


England Basketball launcheslaunches new 'All Girls' campaign and ambassador network.

WAtch the video and see how this programme is focused on changing the game for women & girls. 

It's 'All Girls' basketball

'All Girls' has been influenced by nationwide research carried out by Basketball England and will address the barriers faced by women and girls at grass roots level, while promoting the sport’s success stories.  All Girls will create awareness of opportunities for females to play, coach, officiate or volunteer and shine a spotlight on the female role models, such as the Great Britain women’s team.  

“This is national campaign to promote the sport and increase opportunities for women and girls of all ages and abilities to get involved in basketball. It will focus on the sport’s grass roots, promote the continued success of our Great Britain women’s team - and everything in between,” said Stewart Kellett, Basketball England CEO.   

“A huge amount of planning has gone into developing All Girls and once someone picks up a basketball, the infrastructure that we’re developing as part of our wider women and girls’ strategy will hopefully mean they form a lifelong affiliation with the sport.”

#HERMoJo ♀ VIDEO - Diet for success with @katemoloney_ & @watson_lizzy - #MoJoAFRICA

12:00 Diet for Netball - Powering Performance


Diet for netball - Top level performances require smart nutrition - that’s why VIS netballers Liz Watson and Kate Moloney choose fish for protien and Omega-3. - Supported by WSNet's HerMoJo programme

Getting ready for a match? It’s often the last 15 mins that winners win . . . or is it when losers lose? Sometimes you just run out of energy in those closing minutes. Could it be the fuel you’re using? Even before you start playing big competitions it’s worth getting the right fuel for a match or tournament.

Before – Avoid eating big meals within 2 hours of exercise. For an effective pre-game snack, try fruit, low fi bre carbs or cereal bars.

During – between quarters, on the subs bench or at half time, top up with a couple of Jelly Babies for fast releasing energy.

After – your body will be crying out for carbs, protein and fl uids so plan to eat something within 30 mins. Sometimes you feel less hungry then, so a yogurt, glass of semiskimmed milk or a sandwich is perfect. You can take it as soon as you come off the pitch, perhaps with a banana. A more structured, yet light, refuel might be an omelette with juice or water.

WSNet HerMoJo programme supports the INF Creating Choices with NETBALLMoJo - more info:

  • WSNet's work in Africa - HERE
  • International Netball Federation - #CreatingChoices programme - HERE
  • NETBALLMoJo - written by key contributors around the world is designed to help girls overcome many of the issues they face in both western and 'third world' communities starting out in netball.

International – we’re currently working to get NETBALLMoJo translated (into Zulu, Xhosa, Swahili etc.) and digitised. Keen to work with UK NGBs and International Federations to help get the ‘Empowerment through Sport’ message across. Digital editions can be distributed virtually free (e.g. 50 Rupees) and delivered directly, circumventing local (often misogynistic) prejudices – we believe that gives WSNet a unique momentum that can really change the lives of girls in both western and 'third world' countries. If you can help please email paul.r@wsnet.co.uk with your interest.
