Benny Jr Anthony (T.Y.M.S Academic Mentor & Basketball Academy Facilitator)
'Basketball Skills for Life'
Our Polyjammers Youth Basketball Programme is a 'Basketball Skills for Life' initiative, designed to support our Maori and Pacific boys to develop life-skills through social sport.
This is led by our Academic mentor and ex-New Zealand Basketball professional Benny Jr Anthony, 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.
"For me Polyjammers is a beautiful thing. It's bringing Basketball to Maori and Pacific boys that want to play but might not necessarily have the means to"
CANCELLED Game 4 (13th August 2020) The YMCA Basketball co-ordinator Naomi Stowers will keep all teams updated regarding future games as we hear more. But for now, we will keep all the parents updated ASAP via text.
Please contact Langi Latu for any questions regarding the Polyjammers season.

What Our Clients Are Saying
“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'".
