Five School Holiday Tournaments Make April a Month to Remember

By 16/04/2016News

April, 2016 will be remembered as a busy but rewarding month for Helping Hoops. We filled the school holidays with five action-packed tournaments for children all across Melbourne who participate in our programs. These included Fitzroy, Dandenong, Richmond, North Melbourne, and the highlight of them all: the first ever Croxton-Broadmeadows Tournament for children with special needs.

School holiday tournaments are an excellent way to keep Helping Hoops participants engaged at a time where they need structured and fun activities. Many of our children do not enjoy the same level of parental involvement in their lives as those in different situation enjoy, and the void created by the absence of school must be filled. Rather than see our children make poor choices on how to spend their time, we strive to give them a positive alternative, which has been the catalyst for expanding our School Holiday Tournaments program in 2016. That plus it is always a lot of fun.

The initial plan saw Helping Hoops commit to school holiday tournaments in April and September, however, based on the recent success of the April events, we are now looking into increasing this to include July. We look forward to bringing news on this soon.

Thanks goes to the coaches, staff, volunteers, children and families who gave their time. We had fun and are looking forward to doing it all again soon.
