1 Dream Foundation to Cape Town

The 2012 One Dream Foundation trip to Cape Town 2012

April 12th, Crossroad Cape Town,

Crossroad Multipurpose Center- Again this year, the Hoops 4 Hope program was thrilled and excited to host the One Dream Foundation USA Team, including Tom Mott, organizational Director.  The One Dream Foundation traveled to Cape Town for another eventful program filled with shared skills and motivation. Remarkably, this is their fourth consecutive year.

This year the One Dream Foundation group consisted of 26 dedicated coaches.  They spent valuable time conducting advanced coaching clinics for beginners and advanced South African youth players.  The group of players came from the nearby Nyanga Township and Crossroad.

Among the coaches, we watched NCAA class of 2013 top USA recruit Alyson Bebee. Alyson was recruited by the Stanford University Women’s Basketball Team. Naturally, the youth automatically gravitated around Alyson and her ability to coach.  Equally, the youth were thrilled to rotate through skills development stations. The day program ended with a very exciting and competitive game, consisting of two local teams coached by very competitive international coaches.
