Girls Got Game
The Girls Got Game Programme is a collaboration with Basketball New Zealand and Sport Canterbury's Tū Manawa Fund.
It aims to engage young girls in basketball and encourage them to continue being active and enjoy basketball with their friends.
Run by Millie Knight and other NC female coaches, its major advantage over mixed programs is its focus on girls.
Girls Got Game 2023:
