Our Polyjammers Youth Basketball Programme is a 'Basketball Skills for Life' initiative, designed to support our Maori and Pacific boys. The purpose of this initiative is to develop life-skills through social sport with the aims of building self-esteem, confidence and peer support within our rangatahi. Polyjammers has opened doors for our boys to play Basketball, when limited opportunities such as transport costs, registration fees, lack of access or confidence in accessing organised sports may have prevented them.
If you aren't receiving weekly updates for game reminders and have a player in the team please contact our Project Manager Langi Latu or for any questions regarding the Polyjammers season at email@example.com
Term 4 Update
Update: Due to delays from Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, most Basketball Leagues have been placed on hold or cancelled for the remainder of the year. Our current team from Term 3 have therefore rescheduled games into Term 4, where they will complete all games missed during lockdown.
Instead of developing a new team for Term 4, we've developed an in-school Basketball development programme called "Jammers" which is currently being run with an Auckland primary school for the remainder of 2020.
Our Location Find us at 644 Swanson Road, Swanson, Auckland
“If I can just affirm all the great progress that our boys are showing at school in their confidence, physical health, and their learning. Much of which is attributable to the great work that their mentor is doing."
"TYMS helped me grow as a person. They helped me understand a few things that no one else was willing to help me understand, and help me see through things that no one else could."
"Watching my son grow in the time that his mentor has been involved with him, aw bro it's been amazing. Without his mentor, my son wouldn't even be this young man that people are now seeing before their eyes. He's not out getting himself into trouble, bullying others, or hurting girls. My son came home one day after his session with the mentor and he said, 'I'm so happy you got me help mum'".
