NIGHTLY INFORMATION pt. 2
We had the City of Fremantle Arise Project running a 4 week creative workshop for our young people. The activities varied from creative design, painting and marketting, wool and yarn activities and group art activities throughout their time.
Transport was provided by City of Cockburn and PCYC and buses were driven by 2 of our team Nicolo Jelovsek and Rebecca Scott.
Overall behaviour was good at this torunament. We did have to red card one of our young people for anti social behavior on one of the nights. He is in frequent contact with the staff at the Cockburn Youth Centre and took this well and is looking forward to doing better in the term 2 program.
Referee's were supplied by the Cockburn Basketball Association and the Lakeside Lightning for this tournament.
Trainers were supplied by the Lakeside Lightning. The caliber was high including the 2016 SBL rookie of the year Daniel Grida and SBL starting shooter Hayden Bell. Both these guys loved the experienced and loved giving back.
Lennon Smartt ran this tournament again alongside Paul. A real Night Hoops success story was seeing Troy Kelly a former player and participant within the Night Hoops program returned as an Assistant Tournament Manager. Troy stepped up brilliantly and was well received by the group and is well respected among them.
