Power Assist is a volunteer based, ‘not for profit’ organisation focussed on personal development and building the self esteem of people who are intellectually disabled, or otherwise disadvantaged, by providing sporting opportunities, primarily through basketball.
Our main program is running the Victorian Championship Basketball Competition for Players with an Intellectual Disability. This competition has been running continuously since 1987 and currently provides a regular weekly sporting opportunity for over 250 of Melbourne’s intellectually disabled community. Learn more.
It's easy! Just come along to the Hawthorn Secondary College and have a look at our competition. We can help you find a team to play in, or we can discuss how you'd like to help.More
