Friday September 15 saw us increase our weekly program schedule to 10 with the launch of Helping Hoops Power.
Power is a female-only project that gives young women the opportunity to grow and flex their basketball muscle. Based on hard work, determination and grit, it is where we put the power in empower.
Coach Renee, who heads up Power and has been working with young women from culturally and linguistically diverse background for a number of years, says of the program,
“Friday’s session was a great way to start a new program with girls that are willing to work hard and push the limits. Want to see how good womens sport can be!? Watch. This. Space.”
The addition of Helping Hoops Power takes the number of sessions we provide for free to the community each year to well over 450. We are excited by the strong start to the program and the enormous potential for growth that is ahead.
Our thanks to the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust and the Grosvenor Foundation for their support and making the program possible.
