Serving to uplift the youth and give them a place to DREAM BIG and make Africa proud, we honored former-president and visionary Thomas Sankara with this court. GOA Coach Franck Traore from NBA Africa, grew up playing in the exact same spot when there were only a few small hoops, making it extra special to the whole GOA family.
