Last weekend the Frankston Blues participated, in Basketball Vicotria’s inaugural Mental Health Round.
On Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, both our NBL1 (Recap) and Big V Youth League teams wore orange Lifeline league branded socks while officials wore orange lanyards, and a number of our Junior Blues teams also purchased the socks for Friday night’s games.
Prior to that a number of our Frankston Blues players and clubs including Kiera (12.1 Girls), Matt (16.5 Boys), Tori Jackson (Junior Blues Coach/NBL1 Women) Saraid Taylor (NBL1 Women), and Daniel Trist (NBL1 Men) attended headspace Frankston for a tour of the facility and to gain some insight in to the services and resources available to the Frankston community.
Bethany Knight and the team spoke to Blues representative about what headspace offer and who they aim to assist.
For the past month, the club has participated in ‘The Push Up Challenge’ to help raise awareness and funds for headspace Frankston. Donations are still open HERE
FDBA Basketball Development Manager Jarryd Moss spoke about headspace Frankston.
“The work that these organisations do is truly inspirational”
“Bethany, Leisl, and the team at headspace Frankston have been huge for us as an association in providing guidance and support to our members”
“We’re so proud of our teams and our community for how they’ve embraced this challenge, we look forward to continuing to work with headspace Frankston and being a part of this challenge for many years to come”
