International Game Involvement
Basketball Australia provides opportunities for Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops local centres to participate in the half time segment at all Australian Boomers and Australian Opals games played in Australia and hosted by Basketball Australia.
For many participants this can be a defining experience in their basketball participation journey. In addition to providing free match ticketing for half time participants, Basketball Australia also provides accompanying parents or caregivers with discounted ticketing opportunities. At these games Basketball Australia also selects twelve (12) Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops participants to take part in the pre-game national anthem ceremony. Each participant will accompany a national athlete to the court and stand with them as the Australian national anthem is sung.
Basketball Australia also provides opportunities for Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops local centres to participate in the half time segment at selected WNBL games during the WNBL season (September – March). Like national games, participants receive free match ticketing while discounted match ticketing is provided to accompanying parents or caregivers.
