HOOP DREAMS

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Coun. Ja­son Farr shows off his bas­ket­ball prow­ess dur­ing a cel­e­bra­tory game with McMaster Ma­raud­ers at Beasley Park Wed­nes­day night. The game marked the end of this year’s Neigh­bour­hood Hoops sum­mer street ball league. Now in its third year, the pro­gram pro­vides kids ages nine to 14 with a chance to sharpen their bas­ket­ball skills in their neigh­bour­hood. The pro­gram also of­fers coaches na­tional cer­ti­fi­ca­tion train­ing, re­sources and cur­ricu­lum to ad­vance their abil­i­ties. So far, more than 500 kids have taken part in the pro­gram across Hamil­ton.
