BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS

ONE BASKET AT A TIME

Helping Hoops’ mission is to use basketball to inspire, empower and support children and young people.

We achieve this through providing free community-based programs that instill values and skills that benefit participants in their everyday lives. Through this we aspire to create stronger, more cohesive communities while working for equality for the next generation of Australians.

Helping Hoops is an independent charity running free basketball programs for over 1,000 participants. Over 600 sessions per year benefit children and young people of all abilities aged 8 to 21.

Children and young people attending Helping Hoops programs may come from migrant or refugee backgrounds, living in inner-city public housing estates, have an intellectual disability or special needs, or may be socioeconomically disadvantaged in some way.

Helping Hoops aims to build self-esteem, provide a sense of belonging and community, aid social cohesion, instill discipline, develop goal setting and leadership skills, and promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
