Youth Basketball Clinic
On January 5th, 2011, in partnership with Give Running and WitnessHOPE, also not-for-profit organizations, a Youth Basketball Clinic was organized to expose the youth of Ghana to the skill set necessary to succeed in the sport. It focused not only on basketball skills, but also weightlifting, nutrition, sports psychology, and plyometrics as well as leadership, creativity and teamwork, the three pillars of iStandAbove.
The Youth Basketball Clinic was a magnificent success with a turnout of 68 athletes. Each of whom walked away with a bag, a water bottle, a t-shirt, a basketball and invaluable lessons both for basketball and life, as they know it. The basketball clinic was the second of its kind and was one of the largest clinics ever held in Ghana, as it received national television, magazine and radio coverage.
