Specialist Hoops is an organisation started to give kids and adults with disability a chance to enjoy the sport in a safe and fun learning environment where they can be themselves without fear of being judged.
Specialist hoops began in September 2017 when Executive director, Emily Attard, decided to set up a one-day "all abilities" basketball camp to promote the values listed above. After a successful program in 2017, and people asking when the next program was going to run, Emily decided that it needed to become a regular program.
