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

The program, now in its fourth year, is full of vibrant personalities and has a strong community feel. Coach Steve has taken the helm as head coach of the program after volunteering at Helping Hoops Richmond for many years, and continues to expand on the relationships and reputation he has built through his ongoing efforts over an extended period of time. Challenging behaviour within the program has highlighted the many issues the children face in their everyday lives. These challenges only emphasise the importance of having a positive and consistent presence that we strive to provide through Helping Hoops Richmond.
