A community meeting will be held on Wednesday, 11 May to discuss the proposal for a National Indigenous 3on3 Basketball and Hip Hop Challenge – the Vibe 3on3® to be held in Albany later this year.
The meeting will be held from 10am to 12pm at the Albany Aquatic and Leisure Centre, Barker Road, Albany (off Albany Highway). It’s proposed to hold the event in August 2011 at the Albany Aquatic and Leisure Centre, Barker Road, Albany (off Albany Highway).
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.
But one of the contributing successes to 3on3 events is the amount community involvement, so Vibe Australia is hoping the community will get behind this event and all of its events.
The action-packed 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 organisers of the Vibe 3on3® would like to encourage the local Aboriginal Medical Service, representatives from local primary and secondary schools, the shire council, youth groups, the basketball association and the media to attend the community meeting.

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.
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.
