The Perth Wildcats don’t just focus on being the best performing team in the National Basketball League, but everyone involved at the club knows the importance of being an active member of the community.
That focus sees the Wildcats put a large amount of time and effort into getting out and about into the community of Perth, and Western Australia, and a large part of that is visiting a host of schools each and every week.
The Wildcats spend significant hours in the community, through a series of different programs, including school visits, holiday clinics, and involvement in the local State Basketball League (SBL). Wildcats players and coaches have also been apart of a grass roots programs engaging with local basketball associations across WA.
The school visits where the Wildcats players and coaches host clinics are extremely popular with students at each school, and goes a long way to helping the Perth Wildcats remain at the forefront of the WA sporting landscape.
Most importantly, while the kids they visit get to learn some basketball skills through skill clinics and the like there are also lessons in healthy lifestyle choices.
Thanks to all of the schools which have participated in the program so far. If you would like your school to be involved in our community programs, or are interested in school clinics, please contact Katie Reed.
