Helping Hoops BOUNCE Broadmeadows is a free basketball program for children with an intellectual disability living in Melbourne’s north-west. The program runs every Tuesday from 3 to 4pm and 5 to 6pm and is overseen by coach Omar Coles.
The program is in its 12th year. Coach Omar and the dedicated team of volunteers have found the right mix of challenging drills, discipline, nurturing and encouragement. The diverse range of ages and abilities make for a dynamic that could offer a challenge to many coaches, however Coach Omar has the group united and all working together, and the success of the program is a testament to his efforts along with those of the volunteers.
