Kakadu Hoops dominates Jabiru

24 May 2018

Kakadu Hoops ‘3 on 3’ basketball tournament commenced back in January this year and was a huge success with the youth in the Kakadu region.
Kakadu Hoops was organised by the Jabiru Public health Team, Catholic Care NT, and supported by RISE and Warnbi Aboriginal Corporation as part of a program for NT Youth Week.
Trisha Miller and Matt Hellyer from the Public Health Team at Jabiru Primary Health Care Centre supported youth through a motivating training workout 2 days a week:  every Tuesday and Thursday from 5pm to 7pm with the support of Louisa Bayne and Louise Mayclair from Catholic Care NT along with other members of the Public Health team.
The Kakadu Hoops 3on3 basketball tournament included 28 training days, culminating in one great grand final match.
Over the four-month period, the program saw an average of 20 youth and a maximum of 30 youth participating at any one time.
