Congratulations Kobe Jeffriess!

Congratulations Hamish Daniel!

Hamish plays basketball at Brisbane Capitals in Queensland. We asked Hamish about his love of the Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops basketball program: “I really like the coaches. Jake Davis is my favourite coach - he’s fun and he can dunk! I love playing the warm up games at Aussie Hoops. Fish tag and Titanic are heaps of fun! The best part of Aussie Hoops is when we get to play a real game of basketball. I love getting fast break lay-ups.

Congratulations Charlize Lush!

Charlize plays for Palmerston in the Northern Territory. Charlize loves Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops because she gets to play fun games with her friends. We asked her what her favourite basketball activity is: “shooting of course! And I love catching the ball too.”

Congratulations Charlie Curic!

Charlie plays basketball at Broadmeadows Broncos Victoria. What Charlie loves most about Aussie Hoops was practising his dribbling and shooting. He scored his 1st goal just recently. Charlie's favourite activity at Aussie Hoops was playing 'octopus', as it gave him a chance to run around with his friends.
