WSNet launches NETBALLMoJo in the lead up to the Vitality Netball World Cup - with support from Netball Australia
As we approach the Vitality Netball World Cup the Women's Sports Network prepares to launch NETBALLMoJo - the next in this empowering series of manuals designed to help teenage girls overcome some of the many issues they face as they engage in competitive sport. Covering a range of sports they investigate issues such as; body image, diet, breast health, fit or thin, social media, training with menstruation, coach attitude etc. All of which can often impact how girls engage/drop out of sport – and potentially go on to be elite athletes and confident, mature young women outside of sport.
Much of the NETBALLMoJo covers strength and agility from an injury prevention point of view and is hugely useful for young netballers to get off ‘on the right foot’!
Netball Australia developed the KNEE Programme which aims to reduce all lower body injuries across all levels of netball. Hear from Netball Australia's Head Physiotherapist Alanna Antcliff, Australian Diamonds head coach Lisa Alexander and Australian Diamonds shooter Erin Bell.
WSNet has, with the agreement of Netball Australia, drawn heavily on the Knee Programme and will be launching NETBALLMoJo – initially in English on 1st July in time for the World Cup on Liverpool 12-21 July. MORE INFO https://www.nwc2019.co.uk/

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 email@example.com with your interest.
