Street Corner Champion Beatball
One of NSA’s programs is Street Corner Champion Beatball. The Beatball model was developed out of a need to engage young Aboriginal people not currently involved in mainstream sport for a range of reasons including high fees, lack of transport and dislike for a structured sporting environment.
Beatball is a program that focuses around the key areas of physical activity, education, health and positive mentoring.
Beatball is a '3 on 3' basketball competition and the games are self-governed, in that the young people referee themselves. NSA believes that this concept of taking the sport back to its purest form, where young people just play for fun, helps to develop their social, emotional and physical wellbeing, as well as promoting and encouraging them to make the transition into local community sport.
