Porirua Basketball

Porirua Basketball would like to thank Trust House Foundation for providing funding for court hire, support for our League Coordinator and Operations Manager to continue to run our leagues, our development program, and our representative teams. This has allowed Porirua Basketball to send 10 teams to both regional and national championships.

Locally we have run our “Girls got Game” programs, provided referee, coach and score benching development and numerous pre high performance sessions, skills, drills, give it a go, have fun day programs.

Our league coordinator has worked hard to develop and run our tamariki leagues focusing on U7, U9 and U11 teams, this sees tamariki playing every Tuesday afterschool during Term 4 and our Wahine League runs on Tuesday night drawing teams from the greater Wellington region.

Our U13 programs running Term 2,3 and this year term 4, our U15 and U17 Term 1-3 and our U23 and Open Womens Term 2,3 and Wahine League term 4.

Porirua Basketball continues to work with our local Iwi Ngati Toa Rangatira to provide opportunities for them to have court time, coach development and refereeing sessions for their teams attending Poitukohu Maori National Championships.

Without the support from Trust House we could not have run all these activities for our community and provide them at a cost-effective rate. It allows us to run the development programs and leagues close to home so that all our community can participate.

Nga mihi to our U13 Teams who played in the Central Region U13 Basketball NZ Championships in October and produced some excellent results.

  • U13 Kotiro A 2nd Division 1
  • U13 Kotiro Development 3rd Division 2
  • U13 Tama Development 2nd Division 3  
  • U13 Tama B 6th Division 2
  • U13 Tama A 3rd Division 1

"The Grant was to contribute towards our Food Services Manager.  Our wonderful Heath helps the community and corporate groups cook dinner for the families and provides meals throughout the day.  This provides the families with more time to spend with their family while their child is in hospital. "

Ronald McDonald Charitable Trust

"On behalf of Waimanaaki and the Live and Learn Trust, we thank you for your grant to help the camp in a range of ways. With these funds we have been able to purchase sixty new mattresses for campers to enjoy in the cabins. These new mattresses have a hospital-grade cover to help ease cleaning and maintain safe, hygienic practices to ensure all those who stay in the cabins are comfortable and well looked after for many camps to come. We have also been able to purchase a generator to power the campsite during outages and provide electricity for the local Riversdale residents if there is a prolonged outage. We have also completed the upgrade to all the gas regulators on-site to ensure we are up to code
and all safe.."
