That was just them visiting Mitch Creek at school. He's been repeating the 4th grade for 18 years.

re: Wildcats School Programs

NZ run coaching programs and have a dedicated Meadow Fresh Champions campaign where they visit schools (for free) and they teach them about things such as goal setting, nutrition, active lifestyles and values). Breakers also do a lot for a lot of underprivileged kids at South Auckland schools.

Every team does community involvement and school-based stuff in some regard.

Perth's community involvement isn't so much about what they do (because they do what other teams do generally).

But it's about how much they do - from memory, their contracts require high community involvement hours. Credit to them. They're keeping it simple - just about putting in the work and getting out in the community.

Cairns also do. Most clubs do but Wildcats like to pump themselves up over it the most.

So true the 'Cats love letting everyone know how amazing they are at doing the basics. Really is another world over there. In general its a great thing that most teams do by engaging with the kids and promoting the game.

..and non Wildcats supporters wonder why their teams don't have the kind of support we do, complaining how the Wildcats love to bang on about themselves.. lol

Call it professionalism, marketing, doing their bit for the community that supports them so well, sharing the good vibes.. call it whatever you want.

Just know that the Wildcats do it the best.

Aw..

It's called passion though.

Maybe if your team did better 'marketing' and cared about it's supporters, you'd be more passionate and would be pumping up your own team and fellow supporters too.

Ah yes, the most profitable and successful forum in the NBFL (National Hoops Forum League).

Just kidding, hoops.com.au is the best.

Cat Chat was the South Dragons of the NBFL.
It died quickly, it had some douches in charge for a while, but at its peak it was pretty special.

Poor English aside, maybe its time you created a forum for people who know nothing about Basketball, or in deed any sport, but are united in their hatred of everything.

To answer the OP, its the same old story. Other teams do it, some more-so than most. The well-backed, well-run teams like Perth & Auckland tend to do it more than most.

Keep in mind that Perth currently have the advantage of having several well-paid long-term players resident in Perth, so that gives them a lot of hours to spread around. That's not always the case.

Also, Perth are well versed in getting their story repeatedly out to the media at every opportunity.

It never ceases to amuse me when I see a person criticise the poor English of another on the internet and in the process make errors themselves within the first sentence. Skitt's Law FTW.
