The Vibe 3on3 comes to Coffs!

The Vibe 3on3® is a fun, free event for Aboriginals and non-Indigenous Australians. There’ll be basketball, dancing, music, health and culture to entertain and challenge young people. 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 and Aboriginal basketball star Claude Williams, the action-packed Fun Friday 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 Jimmy Little Foundation will also be there with good advice for young people on healthy nutrition.

To participate in the Vibe 3on3®, young people need to pre-register in teams of five through their school by Friday, 25 February 2011. The event is capped at 400 kids, so get in quick to gain your spot at the 3on3. The event will be held at the Sportz Central, Bray St, Coffs Harbour from 9am-2.30pm and will feature an opening ceremony, face painting and a health expo.

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

The Vibe 3on3® would not be possible without our sponsors the Department of Health and Ageing through the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health and Vibe Australia.

We also thank our supporters the Koori Mail, Deadly Sounds and Deadly Vibe.
