Midnight Basketball Program

Midnight Basketball is a national social inclusion programme to help 'at risk' youth identify and embrace positive opportunities. Our first Midnight Basketball program is going to be happening in the city of Knox starting this February for a seven week tournament, running on Saturday nights. Dinner, compulsory life skills workshops and tournament basketball games are run in stadiums and will be on Saturday nights from 7.30pm till midnight, followed by a bus home, providing a safe and motivating environment. We don’t expect you to give up all your Saturday nights so there will be a rostered system for volunteers.

Midnight Basketball is open to youth aged 12 to 18 years. Every night of each 7 Week tournament includes:

Volunteers needed for Committee members to help this fantastic program get up and running, Coaches, Caterers, Team Managers, qualified referees, security, drivers, workshop facilitators and others.

Players arrive at 7:30pm and are fed a nutritious meal in order to stay focused and energetic for the night ahead. All volunteers will need a current police check and working with children check. We are also looking for businesses to support the program.
