Community Programs

Bounce Back & Big Bounce

Bounce Back is a 4-week rotational mentoring program focusing on empowering and guiding young people. Throughout the Bounce Back mentoring program, a guest mentor will provide guidance, share personal experiences, and facilitate discussions to help young people develop a strong foundation in the program's key areas. The program will adapt to the cognitive abilities and maturity levels of the youth, ensuring that the content is relevant and accessible to all participants.

Overall, the program provides young people with the necessary tools and support to transition successfully into a law-abiding and productive life after their release from the detention centers.

Big Bounce is a transitional program directly addressing reoffending risks and promotes positive connections to prosocial leisure and recreational activities. Big Bounce focuses on building a readiness to engage with other services and support that address various reoffending risks, including general welfare and support, as well as cultural needs. Big Bounce will also develop young people's ability to build effective communication skills to promote personal agency.

The BK Family

The "BK Family" is a term affectionately given to those involved with Brian Kerle Basketball, as youth and families alike find a sense of belonging with the organisation. We always say, you are never alone at BK Basketball.

Youth Work

Youth Detention Centres

Brian has organised a program called "Big Bounce" to help young people in youth detention centres. Youth mentors and coaches connect with the kids through basketball and educate them on making the right choices to help them reach their potential.

At Risk & Underprivileged Youth

Brian sends a team of dedicated coaches and youth mentors to connect with youth who are at risk or underpriveleged. He provides good role models for their lives to steer them in the right direction.

Remote Communities

Brian travels out to remote communities such as Cherbourg, Cunnamulla, Thursday Island and Stradbroke Island to deliver programs for young people who wouldn't usually receive the same opportunities. This is close to Brian's heart as he grew up in regional Mount Isa.

Homeschool Program

Brian invites hundreds of homeschool children and their families participate in free basketball clinics all over Brisbane.
