A specialised basketball program designed for young people with Autism
Ausome Hoops is a basketball program specifically designed for young people with Autism, currently based in Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. Founded in 2019, Ausome Hoops delivers school holiday camps and weekly programs to kids on the spectrum, providing a safe, inclusive space where they can learn how to play basketball free from the judgement from others that may be present in mainstream sport programs.
WHAT WE PROVIDE:
Basketball stadiums can get quite loud and can be a sensory overload. We provide a quiet sensory room where kids can get away from the noise and play with sensory items.
We have multiple support coaches who assist in the delivery of Ausome Hoops. They range from being qualified education support, university students studying occupational therapy, and disability support workers.
Player profiles are given to every coach and aide prior to the camp or session beginning so we can get to know your childs needs before we begin. These are on hand during every session and provide key info such as likes/dislikes, sensory needs and management strategies.
We offer 1 senior + 1 support coach to a group of 5 kids. This allows us to get to know every child much better and allows connections between our coaches and teachers aide's to be built, making the children more comfortable.
