The 2021 Community Program has a primary goal of increasing the participation rates of women in sports, particularly basketball within regional and rural areas of New South Wales. The program has already been met with overwhelming support from the regions of Wagga Wagga & Bathurst, where the first two clinics took place earlier this year.
Members of both the NSW & local governments couldn’t express the value and importance that these clinics had not only on developing basketball skills but also and more importantly giving their local communities positive role models for young females to look up to. The clinics are designed to develop individual skills whilst concurrently providing a pathway & role model for young females to look up to when it comes to pursuing their own sporting dreams.
Overall the Flames look to build strong positive connections with the regional areas of NSW in the hopes of fostering the sustained growth and empowerment of young women through basketball.
