The CRBF Hoops In-Schools Programme’s target setting are higher deprivation schools and communities through Canterbury & Tasman.
Communities and schools in higher deprivation areas with a passion for physical activity and a potential for growth in participation of the sport within that school or community. Where a new hoop will be impactful for the tamariki and rangatahi and help build relationships and healthy habits in all areas of their life. An important aspect for hoops that are installed in schools is that the school agrees to allow the hoop to be available for the community during after school time.
Programme Outline & Vision
The CRBF identify schools and community groups to install a hoop in through various criteria:
- The school/community is already involved in CRBF run programmes and the need for a new hoop to continue to grow participation and physical activity within that school or community is identified.
- Through collaborative partnerships with Clubs, Academies, Youth/Community Organisations and Regional/National Sporting Bodies.
With increased funding we aim to install 10 hoops in higher deprivation schools & communities over the next 12 months throughout Canterbury & Tasman.
“The CRBF in partnership with the Rams and support from Christ's College & Home to be able to install a set of basketball hoops has helped give our children a great area to practice their skills and develop what they have learned!"
