OUR PROGRAM

Basketball.

The heart of our organisation is a simple goal: to build at-risk young people’s self-esteem, develop their life-skills and provide a structure for growth based on education and sports, steering them away from crime and wandering the streets.

Education.

It’s more than just a game. Such is our dedication to academic performance at Star Basketball that every young person on our teams must commit to a tuition program that assists him or her with schoolwork, run by us. If they don’t study, they simply are not allowed to play.

ABOUT US

SAVANNAH PRIDE’s MISSION

With sport, education and mentoring, Savannah Pride is a youth organisation dedicated to inspiring Australian youth through basketball in NSW.

What was founded in 2006 as a small group of coaches and students coming together to better the lives of South-Sudanese-Australian families through basketball programs in Blacktown, Savannah Pride is now an all-inclusive community organisation that attract kids across all areas of support for families through basketball right across NSW.

Much like the Savannah tree, basketball grown into something that brings all walks of life together: Families, students, mentors, educators and outsiders.

Savannah Pride aims to include not just African-Australian communities but also anyone who looks to be inspired. Helping young kids channel their energy into school and competitive sport, while keeping out of trouble.

Savannah Pride provides well-rounded development for boys and girls with basketball programs, education programs, homework support and cultural guidance. The men and women that make up Savannah pride have created a reassurance in their community, working alongside the youth, their families, their schools and local police.

A community that is developing deep roots and strong branches, Savannah pride has been welcomed by all involved, particularly the youth in Western Sydney.
