Aussie Hoops Associations Recognised

Aussie Hoops Associations Recognised

During the Aussie Hoops Workshops conducted last week at Echuca and Waverley, Aussie Hoops Associations were formally recognised by Basketball Australia for their support of the program.

f Aussie Hoops is the national program for kids where the focus is fun whilst learning basketball with game sense activities.

Each of these associations has signed an Aussie Hoops agreement which entitles them to:

·         Use the national branding for the program “(Name of the association) Aussie Hoops”;

·         Utilise the online database provided through The Basketball Network (TBN), which will shortly have the capacity for taking payment as well.  Normally to set up a PayMySport account costs $200, however this setup fee is waived for Aussie Hoops associations;

·         The database also allows the Associations to communicate easily with their members, which makes promoting future programs very easy;

·         Access to program benefits such as merchandise, giveaways, association resources including DVDs, coaching resources and school resources;

·         Their Association details will be included on the Association Locator that will be a part of (available with online registration).  This data can be updated by the Association, enabling them to promote their latest programs.

Here are some quotes taken from the workshop:

“I did enjoy what we got to see and am excited about Aussie Hoops growing in the coming months and years!”

“I have spoken with our newly appointed Basketball Manager about getting Aussie Hoops back in Caroline Springs. He thinks that this is a necessity and we would like to get the ball rolling for next term ASAP.”

“From the first part that I was there for I got a lot better understanding of 'Aussie Hoops' purpose in Associations.”

Todd Anderson – Administrator, Melton Basketball Association

“With the new developments in Aussie Hoops and the versatility of the program now we are happy to be back involved and help in any way we can. We look forward to working with you in the future.”

Lyndon Dale, Nunawading Basketball Association

“We have seen significant growth at Charlton since the inclusion of Aussie Hoops.  This workshop is a great opportunity to hear about the future direction of the program and to share ideas with other associations.  If there are any associations who don’t do it, you should get onboard!”

“Too often we see programs collapse if they don’t have a successful coach, where as Aussie Hoops parents coach these kids and we provide them with the material to achieve this.  The support network is also phenomenal”

“The link between Aussie Hoops in schools to then attend Aussie Hoops in the Association through gala days, holiday camps and activities is really good”

Kaylene Cossar, Charlton Basketball Association
