2018 NIGERIA CAMP – DAY 1

The Giants of Africa crew began camp today in the place it all started 15 years ago – Nigeria. Right away, you could feel the energy in the building as over 100 boys and girls took the floor for an intense warm-up. The noticeable ingredient outside of sheer athleticism, was size, as Nigeria sports some of the tallest players on the Giants of Africa tour. The kids are hungry and eager to learn, and it showed in an afternoon of drills, strength training, and games. Coach and GOA Co-Founder, Godwin Owinje, who’s from Nigeria, capped the day off detailing the story of his life to the kids and how basketball has taken him places he never dreamed of. In his words, it saved his life. Overall, a great day.
