Community Development Takes A Step Forward!

Community Development Takes A Step Forward!

Casey Basketball Association are working with several organisations to launch and implement a new Community Development Program. The program is being designed to identify talented young athletes in the local area, who are a part of a low socio-economic background and provide them with elite level training to help them reach their potential.

A major step forward with the program was the recent listing of Oyiti Amum in the Casey Cavaliers Youth League team. Coming out of the Red Roo program where all athletes are only permitted to join if they are enrolled in education, work or actively seeking work. Oyiti is currently working around the clock to help support the everyday life of his family. Recognising his need for support, Melbourne United centre Majok Majok, and the entire playing group have banded together to support Oyiti and sponsor him for the upcoming 2018 Big V season.

Oyiti is a hard-working, talented young athlete, with a great attitude and strong determination. He fits the bill when it comes to the Casey Cavaliers values, and the Association looks forward to seeing what he can achieve on the court in 2018.

Casey Basketball are actively seeking support from businesses who would like to get involved with the new Community Development Program through funding to help reach our target. If the target amount is achieved, the program will run at its highest capacity.

If your business would like to get involved, please contact the Casey Basketball Association via marketing@caseybasketball.com.au
