Project Pick & Roll is a three court restoration project in Regina’s North Central community.
The project is all about Buckets & Borders setting the pick for a deserving community, so they can roll up to accessible courts they can play on and be proud of…
Ultimately, giving hoopers two options: the mâmawêyatitân centre (dubbed The Den) and the two courts located at Regent Park (aka The Yard).
The $120,000 project will restore 1 full outdoor court located at the mâmawêyatitân Centre and two full outdoor courts at Regent Park.
The students of Scott Collegiate are leading the naming, design, and execution of the court located at the mâmawêyatitân centre. The Buckets & Borders team will be working alongside a local Indigenous artist to complete the restoration and mural piece at the Regent Park courts.
Working alongside Indigenous peoples is integral to the completion of this project. The initiative adheres to the TRC’s Call to Action No.90, which calls for sports policies, programs and initiatives that are inclusive to Indigenous peoples.
The Buckets & Borders team is looking to collaborate with one chosen artist to complete the artwork covering two basketball courts at Regina's Regent Park.
The project is paid and submissions close Friday, July 22.
