PCYC Queensland excited to deliver the NBL 3x3Hustle
PCYC Queensland is excited about our official partnership with the National Basketball League (NBL) to deliver the 3x3Hustle in 2019, to be delivered through PCYC Queensland clubs within Indigenous communities.
PCYC Queensland South Queensland Indigenous Programs Manager, Daniel Egan, is excited about the partnership to deliver the 3x3Hustle format.
“The 3×3 game is an exciting, flexible model that is adaptable to indoor and outdoor surfaces consistent with PCYC Queensland facilities located within Indigenous communities. Now PCYC Queensland have partnered with the NBL to deliver the 3×3 Street Hustle, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander players will have access to a clear pathway that could potentially start their journey from community to a state, national or international level,” said Mr Egan.
NBL Chief Operating Officer and 3x3Hustle Managing Director, Andy Crook, hailed the announcement as a big step forward for 3x3Hustle as they continue to expand on community engagement into 2019.
“3x3Hustle provides a pathway for all aspiring Indigenous basketball players across the country, whether that be at the grass roots with Street Hustle or all the way through to Pro Hustle at the elite level,” said Mr Crook.
“Basketball is booming in Australia with over one million people playing the sport and our national teams are winning medals all over the world. With PCYC Queensland’s introduction of the 3×3 pathway, they will provide Indigenous youth with a clear pathway from playing basketball in the streets through to the world stage. 3×3 will make its debut as an Olympic sport at Tokyo in 2020 and basketball will also adopt the 3×3 format for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham,” he said.
