BOUNCE COURTS- BOUNCE ACADEMY MATRAVILLE
Finding courts can be challenging in Sydney so it’s exciting to be opening our Bounce Academy court at Matraville sports High School. The court has been installed after a many months of planning and thanks to the assistance of Sports Australia to support the project to impact not just the students at Matraville High School but the local community. The court fits within the Bounce Academy initiative, which is an elite basketball program that uses resiliency based principles to help participants develop a successful mindset both on and off the court, to prepare them for the ‘game of life’.
Working within the Matraville Sports High School Talented Sports Program, Bounce Academy is a social enterprise activity of Charity Bounce, designed to support our community and social initiatives. With former Harlem Globetrotter and transformational speaker Tracy Williams as the Bounce Academy Director, all programs are based on developing resiliency on and off the court utilising social and emotional evidence based research partnered with years of basketball experience in transformational program development.
We cant wait to see the court in constant use to support the dreams and ambitions of young people both on and off the court.
We are launching programs on the court and if you are interested in volunteers make sure you get in touch…..
