Cock-a-hoop with bas­ket­ball pro­gram

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

MORE than 100 chil­dren are get­ting a taste of bas­ket­ball at one of the best Aussie Hoops cen­tres in the coun­try.

The bas­ket­ball pro­gram at Hamil­ton Hill’s Wally Ha­gan Sta­dium, which has 109 chil­dren aged five to 10 cur­rently en­rolled in its Term 4 course, has won the Aussie Hoops cen­tre of the month for its ded­i­ca­tion to the pro­gram.

Cock­burn Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion op­er­a­tions man­ager Graeme Pratt said the Aussie Hoops pro­gram had al­ready suc­cess­fully tran­si­tioned more than 30 boys and girls into its weekly ju­nior com­pe­ti­tions and ex­pected many more would fol­low suit.

“Both girls and boys en­joy the pro­gram be­cause they are par­tic­i­pat­ing in phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity and mak­ing new friendship­s,” he said.

“Kids learn the skills of bas­ket­ball through fun games and all coaches are ac­cred­ited and pro­vide a safe en­vi­ron­ment.

“It is great recog­ni­tion for the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of our ju­nior de­vel­op­ment coaches.”
