Helping Hoops North Melbourne is a free, multicultural basketball program for kids living on the North Melbourne public housing estate. The program runs every Friday from 4 to 6pm and is overseen by Coach Steve Bacash.

The program, now in its fourth year, has seen a core group of children consolidate the identity of the program while also reaching out to many peripheral participants, many of whom exhibit undesirable behaviour and occasionally make poor choices after succumbing to negative outside influences. This delicate balance is maintained admirably by Coach Steve. Many of the core group, who have made the weekly commitment over an extended period of time, have progressed exponentially in their skills, attitudes and behaviour, and we look forward to seeing the further progress of Helping Hoops North Melbourne over the next twelve months.

Every Friday, 4pm – 6pm
