The latest stop for Giants of Africa, Ivory Coast. A country that is welcoming the camp for the first time. The leg began at Orphelinat De Bingerville where the group of children living in the orphanage were engaging and filled the day with positive energy. Once they were given basketballs, they showed skill and polish that took all the GOA team by surprise. That skill was a sign of things to come.
With every new country, comes questions regarding facilities and player skill level. When the coaches arrived at INJS Sports Facility in Abidjan and drills began, all those questions were laid to rest. INJS is one of the better facilities that has hosted a GOA camp – and the kids in Côte d’Ivoire, they can hoop.
