Joel Khalu says this is remarkable, after seeing the number of participants exceeding the expected number.
The program attracted a lot of participants in just a week, due to it being open to people of all ages.
"We actually had a number of older players comment about the vibe and how they've never been part of a sporting environment like that in PNG before. That feedback was really great to hear," Khalu said.
"To have 319 participants in week one is a huge accomplishment.
"We've done a lot of work promoting the program over the past month and we were hoping to get about 100 players on-court. To crack the 300 mark just shows the popularity that basketball has here in Port Moresby."
With this achievement, they are hoping to deliver another segment of the program in Term 2 of 2017, for another six weeks.
"Hopefully, through the success of these two programs, we'll then be able to generate some further funding, to deliver another block in Term 4 of 2017.
“It's definitely something we want to make sustainable, especially with all of the positive benefits it brings to the community,” Khalu pointed out.
