Helping Hoops Dandenong is a free, multicultural basketball program for kids living in Melbourne’s south-east. The program runs every Wednesday from 4:30 to 7pm and is overseen by coaches Omar Coles and Renee Clarke.

The program, now in its fifth year, has shifted to cater for older participants as they transition into their teenage years and also a contingent of younger participants, many of whom are new to basketball. Helping Hoops Dandenong is our most multicultural program, with children from many different ethnic and cultural backgrounds making for a diverse and vibrant environment. The program has struggled to attract girls in previous years but has turned the corner in relation to female participation, having now achieved our minimum level of 25 per cent. Coach Renee is to credit for this turnaround and we hope to see many more young ladies join in the near future.
