The Y STREETBALL initiative is a drop-in basketball clinic that was co-developed by by our very own participant Dave "Disco" Gunstone. Through experiencing the positive sense of belonging and trust as part of the Collingwood Magpies Footy community, Disco and Peter Abraham were inspired to create a similar initiative in their local area of North Melbourne. Y streetball combined their love of basketball with a desire to make it more accessible for those experiencing homelessness and social disadvantage. The facilities at North Melbourne Community Centre YMCA are open every Tuesday afternoon from 4-6pm for anyone who would like to join the fun. No experience required!
The Magpies are proud to support and inspire our participants to make a difference in their local community. Well done Disco!
