I AM A GIRL. I CAN DO ANYTHING.
I AM A GIRL LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS
Hills Basketball is a place where we encourage females to be involved at all levels and in all aspects of our game. Take the next step, get involved and be ambitious. WE are young. WE are a team. WE learn from leaders. WE will be leaders.
The I AM A GIRL LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIP program was launched in 2017 to incorporate female youth players, youth referees, coaches, referee coaches & officials to develop both technical skills and leadership qualities.
The I AM A GIRL Leadership Program provides an opportunity for females to develop leadership skills through courses & seminars, while receiving unique opportunities to develop their preferred facet of the game – playing, refereeing, coaching or officiating.
We have a strong female involvement in basketball and this group will lead the development and ensure the sustainability of our women’s program. We hope from this campaign we will encourage females to be involved at all levels & in all aspects of our game.
