With our buddies at 3×3 Hustle showing the crowd at the @arnoldsports just how we do here at Helping Hoops! Clinics and exhibition games were so much fun for our kids, coaches and volunteers. We’ll be back (who got the reference??) all day tomorrow at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, so come say hi and get your shots up. . . . #helpinghoops
“3×3 Hustle shares our vision of making basketball accessible to all and has already given our children opportunities to get involved and enjoy the action while showing the public their impressive skills and boundless energy,” McKay said in a recent chat with 3x3Hustle.com.
“We are looking forward to having our coaches, volunteers and participants involved heavily in the upcoming Pro Hustle Tour.
“I think we have the foundation for a great partnership with 3x3Hustle based on our shared values and love of the game of basketball.”
The Helping Hoops crew, led by McKay, have already started teaming up with 3x3Hustle, putting on hugely popular clinics and competitions across the Moomba Festival and Arnold Sports Festival, all with the common goal of bringing 3×3 basketball to the masses.
A shared passion for basketball and spreading the message of the inclusive nature of sport, is something that NBL Chief Operating Officer, Andy Crook, identified in the Helping Hoops crew very early on.
“I’ve admired the work that Helping Hoops does for some time, both in terms of social outcomes achieved and their ability to grow quickly to reach as many kids as possible, so to have them involved with 3x3Hustle is a perfect fit,” Crook said.
“The opportunities that Adam and the Helping Hoops team are providing for disadvantaged youth in our communities are exceptional.
“We’re looking forward to this being a long and fruitful partnership that will bring opportunities within 3x3Hustle, and basketball overall, to those who may not previously have had that level of access.”
