Your role as a local association is to help us grow our great game, and through our Local Centre partnerships, we aim to provide the most current marketing, administration and coaching resources to our Aussie Hoops Centres supporting them to achieve that.
Our goal is to develop local associations and other affiliated providers to establish an effective and consistent participation pathway at an introductory level, and we are confident that Aussie Hoops is the most effective program to transition new 5-10 year old participants into local competitions during 2018 and beyond.
