School Hoops

Prior to 2015, Bendigo Bank School Hoops was delivered by the Hawks.

The Hawks were proud to run one of the Illawarra’s best community programs. The Bendigo Bank School Hoops program was a FREE one hour session run across Schools in the Illawarra.

Every year the Hawks have over 8,000 kids in the region participate in the Bendigo Bank School Hoops program, in 2014 over 120 visits were made to schools in the Illawarra.

Thanks to the support of Oak Flats Community Bank & Shellharbour branches of the Bendigo Bank the Hawks are able to provide free basketball clinics to schools across the Illawarra through the entire year.

The Bendigo Bank School Hoops program is run throughout the Illawarra all year round. The program is a one hour fun and safe basketball clinic coordinated by Hawks players and coaches, the sessions are about teaching kids the fundamentals of basketball through fun games and activities.

Every child that participates in the Bendigo Bank School Hoops program received a Bendigo Bank Drink bottle and Hawks ticket offer provided by Bendigo Bank.
