Official Partnership with Matraville Sports High School
We are excited to announce our partnership with Matraville Sports High School to deliver a range of programs to inspire positive change including:
- Elite basketball training as part of the Talented Sports Programs.
- Resiliency basketball training programs
- Employment pathway programs for current and former students
- Official launch of our first Bounce Academy.
Matraville Sports High School is a co-educational community high school, promoting high expectations in the classroom and providing an elite Talented Sports Program. Located in Sydney’s South East, the school has a very strong sporting tradition and currently offers six sporting academies of which the Bounce Academy will partner to deliver the basketball programs. The focus of the Talented Sports Program is to develop our student-athletes holistically, striving for elite skill development and setting high expectations in the classroom.
We would like to thank the Principal, Nerida Walker and Head of Sports programs, Andrew Bobadilla for their support and vision to establish this partnership. The school has an excellent team comprised of committed teachers and specialist coaches who go above and beyond their duties to develop the student-athletes and we are excited to work together to inspire the young people involved across all our programs.
A big thanks to Lendlease for transforming old changerooms into our new Bounce Academy premises and improvements to the basketball venue and equipment. We can’t wait to reveal our plans over the next couple of weeks as we launch the Bounce Academy.
Charity Bounce is a not for profit organisation that exists to inspire positive change to overcome disadvantage for individuals and communities. With a focus on Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders and Culturally Diverse communities, including newly arrived refugees we aim to move people toward a more positive future through the development of sports, the arts, health, education and employment focused social programs. The programs are delivered in partnership with professional athletes to motivate change and inspire.
