Auburn Review 9th April, 2013
EMMA Bramston is passionate about basketball.
A member of the Parramatta Wildcats senior women's team, the 33-year-old also runs Hoops For Health, a company providing a pathway of coaching and programs for the development of basketball skills at the grass-roots level.
"We are particularly focussed on our younger generation participating in sport, especially children six to 12 years of age," Bramston said.
"I have been playing basketball my entire life, I just love it.
"I have been coaching for 15 or so years. I just love kids and any kid who can have a sport around them is the most supportive thing I can imagine.
"Apart from providing the children with opportunities to be active and improve coordination, our programs promote social interaction, improve teamwork skills and increase self confidence as the kids foster their own sense of love for sport and recreation."
Bramston also thanked Dooleys Lidcombe Catholic Club who have been supportive of their programs.
She said that during the upcoming school holidays, Hoops for Health is running camps at the Auburn Basketball Centre from 9am to 3pm from Wednesday, April 17, to Friday, April 19.
Guest players from the Sydney Kings will also help the children work on their skills with each participant receiving a free T-shirt and ball.
