Youth Week – Zillmere PCYC 3 on 3 Basketball Competition
The ‘Zillmere PCYC 3-on-3 Basketball Project’ was established after a working group was formed in response to concerns about safety and anti-social behaviours in O’Callaghan Park. The project’s objective is to bring together a range of communities to partner and engage with the local youth in a 3-on-3 basketball tournament and improve social cohesion.
