Sporting Chance; Discover, Compete, Experience.
 
In August 2013, The 11th Edition of OBC Basketball Tournament will take place in Cote d'Ivoire. Multiple teams are taking part in that tournament for all ages! Given that basketball is not well organized in Ghana, our members do not get the chance to compete and measure themselves against others. We will embark with 2 teams (U12 & U14) on this trip for a total of 30 players giving them the chance to travel, get exposure, learn a new culture, practicing another language and PLAY. project reportread updates from the field
