Play Fair

Sonya Ottaway

President of Netball America, CEO of World University Netball Championship, 2nd Degree Black Belt in Hapkido & Taekowndo

For more than 10 years, Netball America has been championing active lifestyles for girls and women, fighting childhood obesity, creating role models and providing leadership opportunities to help empower girls and women.  Netball has provided me with many global opportunities that has made me the leader I am today.  I’ve had to overcome numerous challenges, including cancer and people telling me what I want to achieve is not possible.  Sports has given me the confidence I have today, including life lessons about camaraderie, selflessness, dedication and sportsmanship, and it’s so critical for each of us as leaders to help empower the next generation of female leaders.
