The new Ballarat Sports & Events Centre (BSEC) will allow a junior girls netball competition at the BSEC for the first time in over 20 years, a home for wheelchair sport, Special Olympics, Midnight Basketball for Youth at Risk and expanded Primary school competitions and clinics.
The BSEC will also provide a first class regional training base for junior netball and basketball athletes to give them a realistic career path from a beginner to the Diamonds or Opals, all in their own backyard. Rather than be forced to travel into Melbourne for this training families will save precious time and money by being able to make Ballarat their regional home.
These programs see coaches from each sport, Federation University, Council Youth Services, Schools, Multi-Cultural Youth Services, Headspace, Ballarat Community Health and Victoria Police together at the BSEC supporting a range of programs and those participating being engaged with all these services and opportunities.
To provide these new programs and services we need to provide the specialist coaching and support educators along with the equipment needed to allow our junior athletes to have state of the art training aids.
