FPS School Visit to Port Pirie

As part of the Female Participation Strategy, Basketball SA and Aboriginal Basketball Academy partnered in supporting a basketball clinic in Port Pirie celebrating NAIDOC week.

Feedback – Joey Wyatt – Aboriginal Basketball Academy Mentor 

“Over 30 students from the surrounding area of Port Pirie, Port Augusta and Port Broughton attended.

Staff and coaches of ABA enjoyed hooping with the young fellas and connected with Community members.

Some young fellas lacked confidence at first but coaches and staff with other young fellas leading the way saw those young fellas find their confidence to join in the fun”

Feedback – Kit Prior – Aboriginal Health Community Engagement and Development Officer 

“You all engaged really really well with the participants and did such a great job of involving everyone – even those who were a little reluctant or shy.”

“You were able to engage and cater with participants of all ages and get them involved in playing! I can not thank you enough for taking your time and using your resources to attend our event I think you all left a very lasting and positive impression!”
