The affiliated clubs program helps us partner Victory Scholars with sports clubs that have a need of help the development of their specific sport.
Through our Victory Scholar program we have developed a basketball outreach that has been in working development for over 20 years with our Founder and CEO Gareth Maguire and Co-Founder Prof Deirdre Brennan dealing with the development of thousands of children playing the sport of basketball. Together with our Victory Scholars we will continue the development of young people in Northern Ireland and Ireland in playing the sports they love.
A great example of this is Ulster Elks Junior Basketball Club, where a number of our Victory scholars have worked over the last 9 years.
The Junior Elks is a cross community club that provides sporting opportunities for young people from all sides of the community.
Our Victory Scholars work throughout the year in their local communities to help develop the game of basketball, and now golf, in Northern Ireland and Ireland.
We are continuously working to build sports, such as basketball, in our society for young people to have the same opportunities that have encouraged us as an organization to believe that sport really can change lives.
