“A strength of Helping Hoops Fitzroy has been its high engagement with young ladies, who make up 38% of participants.”
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 sixth year and continues to provide a strong sense of community and a place where children feel they belong on a weekly basis. A strength of Helping Hoops Fitzroy has been its high engagement with young ladies, who make up 38 per cent of participants. 2017 has continued to see many younger participants join, ensuring the future of the program is strong. Many of these younger children have waited patiently on the sidelines for their opportunity, and we are delighted that they have grown to the point where they can participate and make Helping Hoops Fitzroy a dynamic and fun place to be every Monday.
