Basketball NSW (BNSW) has teamed up with the Office of Sport, Indigenous Basketball Australia and local communities to run basketball clinics and 3×3 tournaments in the far north of NSW to help grow the game in regional areas.
On Friday January 13 BNSW and IBA teamed up with Flow Projects to run a 3×3 day in Lismore that attracted more than 60 junior players.
‘Juniors didn’t have to come as part of a team, that all gets sorted on the day,’ Lauren King from BNSW said.
‘The grant means we can run these programs to the end of the year. Any clubs who want to be involved should get in touch with the community programs at BNSW,’ she said.
School holiday clinics were also held at Angourie, Grafton and Murwillumbah last week.
‘We are also working closely with the local community to develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pathways for youth leaders, coaches, referees and technical officials,’ she said.
The BNSW website will provide information on more clinics and 3×3 days throughout the year here: https://www.bnsw.com.au/indigenous/.
