Helping Hoops Fitzroy is a free, multicultural basketball program for kids living on the Atherton Gardens public housing estate. The program runs every Monday from 5 to 7pm and is overseen by Coach Omar Coles.

The program is in its fifth year and continues to provide an encouraging environment for dozens of children from a migrant and multicultural background. As well as achieving over 40 per cent female participation, Helping Hoops Fitzroy has seen many younger participants join over the past twelve months ensuring the future of the program is strong. Many of these younger children have waited patiently on the sidelines for months for their turn, and we are delighted that they have grown to the point where they can participate and add even more colour and fun to an already thriving community.

Every Monday, 5pm – 7pm
