Basketball without Borders 2009

Hoops 4 Hope partnered again this September for the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders camp (BwB) in Johannesburg for our fourth year, teaching seminars in leadership, HIV prevention, gender equality, and being assistant coaches.  As the league’s global basketball development and community outreach program, BwB is co-organized by the NBA, FIBA and Basketball South Africa.

BwB uses sport to influence positive social change, and features dozens of current and former NBA/WNBA players and team personnel as camp coaches.  Team Hoops 4 Hope, comprised of our energetic All Star coaches, traveled from Cape Town and Zimbabwe to be part of this camp for the best players on the continent, giving them the skills they will need to excel on and off the court.
