“We have been encouraged by the start to Helping Hoops Prahran, but are also mindful that it is unlike anything we have undertaken in the past.”

Helping Hoops Prahran is a free, multicultural basketball program for kids living on the Prahran public housing estate. The program runs every Saturday from 1 to 3pm and is overseen by Coach Steve Bacash.

The program is new to the schedule having launched in May 2017, however Helping Hoops has a long history in the Prahran area, having collaborated with Stonnington Youth Services on events for local children in public housing. We have waited for the right time to launch a weekly program to consolidate on the relationships we have built in the area, and this opportunity finally came in 2017. We have been encouraged by the start to Helping Hoops Prahran, but are also mindful that it is unlike anything we have undertaken in the past. We have an excellent core group and are building towards making Prahran another strong public housing program.

THIS PROGRAM IS FUNDED BY THE CITY OF STONNINGTON
