Helping Hoops Croxton is a free basketball program for kids with an intellectual disability living in Melbourne’s north. The program runs every Wednesday from 3 to 4pm and 5 to 6pm and is overseen by Coach Steve Bacash.

The program, now in its sixth year, continues to engage a mixture of older participants and those new to basketball and Helping Hoops. Coach Steve, who has taken over in 2016 to provide more structure to the program and help challenge kids through his years of experience in Helping Hoops, has applied his vast knowledge to the group and continues to find a balance between nurturing and ensuring participants are forced to step outside their comfort zone. Seeing older participants encourage and support those new to the program make us grateful for the strong community we enjoy at Helping Hoops Croxton.
