Delivery & Timing

Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops can be delivered by basketball associations, clubs, schools or private providers in Australia after becoming an accredited Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops local centre. In order to achieve accreditation the service provider visits the Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops website and completes the online application. This application is then approved by both the state or territory member and Basketball Australia. The approved and accredited local centre then signs the overarching national delivery agreement and receives the resources and information required to effectively promote and deliver their Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops program.

All Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops locations are referred to as Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops local centres. The program can be delivered indoors or outdoors. The programs are coordinated by the Local Centre Coordinator and sessions delivered by the Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops Coach who is secured by the Local Centre Coordinator either as a paid employee of the centre or as a volunteer.
