After three fabulous years of support from the local Ceduna community, the crew from Vibe will be returning to Ceduna with their all new ‘Super Saturday’ National Indigenous 3on3 Basketball and Hip Hop Challenge – the Vibe 3on3® -on Saturday November 21, 2009. This will be the fourth time the popular sport and music festival has visited the far west coastal town, but the first time in this exciting jam packed one day format.
The Vibe 3on3® brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people for a fun day of basketball, dancing, music, health and culture. The event encourages sportsmanship, teaches new skills and builds self-esteem as well as promoting reconciliation at a grassroots level.
Hosted by former Harlem Globetrotter Dwayne Cross, the action-packed Saturday event features a 3on3 basketball tournament, rapping and break dancing lessons, art workshops, a dance competition and a health expo, all accompanied by a backing track of the latest RnB, hip hop and Indigenous music.
The Vibe 3on3® crew also includes Bboy Jason Campbell, female Indigenous rapper Dizzy Doolan, renowned artist Rick Roser and talented dancer Gine Reuben. Also joining the crew in Ceduna will be our celebrity guest role model Natasha Wanganeen, actress in Rabbit Proof Fence and winner of the young actor of the year awards by the Australian Film Industry.
To participate in the Vibe 3on3®, young people need to be at Ceduna’s Area School May Crescent, Ceduna from 9am on Saturday November 21 to register in teams of three to four players. Players without a team will be allocated one by the Vibe crew.
The Vibe 3on3® aims to promote healthy lifestyles, strengthen communities and boost self-esteem. The Vibe 3on3® is also an excellent opportunity for health services and related organisations to introduce themselves to the wider community. For more information go to www.vibe.com.au
The Vibe 3on3® would not be possible without our sponsors Rio Tinto Aboriginal Foundation, the Department of Health and Ageing through the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, the Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts and Vibe Australia.
We also thank our supporters the Koori Mail, Deadly Sounds and Deadly Vibe.
