Hoops for Health

Hoops For Health is the official community engagement strategy for the Basketball Federation of Papua New Guinea. It has become a reality through FIBA support and funding from the Australian Government’s Pacific Sports Partnership program.

The Hoops For Health inititiave is strategically designed to achieve three major goals:

- Educate about Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD's) and leading active lifestyles

- Promote the importance of school attendance and the value of education

- Reduce anti-social behaviour and encourage social cohesion


These three goals are achieved through the delivery of five unique programs:

- School Clinics

- Twilight Basketball

- BFPNG Junior Hoops

- Mixed Corporate / 3x3 Basketball Competition

- Mum's A Hero
