WILDCATS IN THE COMMUNITY
Winning is satisfying, but just as important is the work the Alloyfold Canterbury Wildcats do in the community. We take pride in se​rving as positive roles models for our peers and young basketball players!
Wildcats coach at schools, run skills sessions and help at local camps.
Players and coaches from the Wildcats spend time mentoring young basketball players. 
The Wildcats are dedicated in giving back to the basketball community.​

WILDCATS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

In addition to coaching local teams, the Wildcats have a scholarship program for young girls. The program rewards junior players that are committed to improving their basketball skills and have potential to move into the next level of basketball. The scholarship consists of $500 for basketball costs and a mentor relationship with one of the Wildcats throughout the season!


With the help of our sponsors, this year we've provided $11,000 in scholarships to 22 of our promising junior players- our future Wildcats!

​If you are interested in being considered for a scholarship for 2018,  make sure to participate in SDL (Summer Development League) and work towards participating in Canterbury representative programmes. Recepients are chosen by a coaching panel (no application.)

2017 WILDCATS SCHOLARSHIPS ANNOUNCED
Congratulations to the 20 future Alloyfold Canterbury Wildcats who've been selected for our 2017 Wildcats Scholarship Programme!
These young players from the U15 and U17 age groups have been selected by a panel of representative coaches who believe they have the potential to be future Wildcats. 

*Selection is independent of 2017 rep selections and is based on criteria such as attitude, work ethic, and future potential to be a Wildcat. 
Selections come from the Mid Canterbury region and  North Canterbury, reflecting the catchment area the Wildcats represent. 

Each scholarship recipient is mentored by a wildcats player for the season and also receives a $500 scholarship for basketball costs. Each of our ten player sponsors is kindly donating $1,000 to make the Wildcats Scholarship Programme possible. Please support us by supporting these sponsors.
