Night Hoops is open to all young people aged 12-18, but is designed specifically to offer a safe and engaging alternative for at-risk young people. The tournaments run over 6 weeks on Saturday evenings from 7pm - 11:30pm. Night Hoops is a basketball tournament that is accessible to everyone and is about much more than sport. Focusing on participation, engagement and respect while providing young people with opportunities to learn valuable life-skills through nightly workshops. There are opportunities to establish connections with local volunteers, police, and other service providers in a safe, structured atmosphere where positive behavior is rewarded and everyone is respected.Night Hoops is a program of Lifting Horizons, a Western Australian not-for-profit dedicated to supporting young people making positive life choices and aid in breaking the cycle of disadvantage.
I managed to get a hold of the Wheatbelt Health Networks man in the know James West on Monday morning and he let me know that tomorrow night at the Rec Centre. Drop the kids off and from 7pm they’ll be occupied with learning some great Basketball skills/workshops, having fun and making new friends. If you want to get your kids involved you can register at http://www.nighthoops.org/
