Hoop to a Better Life
End of the Year Awards

"Encouraging a commitment to excellence"

We are working towards hosting these awards as our way to motivate and encourage the children we are working with in our programme.

• We aim to;
- Encourage them to continue with the good they are already doing.
- Motivate them to start doing what they need to do in order to be better in life.
- To discourage them from activities that would destroy their lives.
- Also to get their parents involved in their children's development and support them as much as possible.

REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE
We are therefore requesting anyone who is able to assist us in making sure that we had things to award them with such as certificates, medals, trophies and food for the evening.

Any form of donations would be highly appreciated.

Please do not hesitate to contact us shpuld you need further clarity or formal documents.

Kind regards,
Coach Sifiso Twala

"It's either you make excuses or you make changes, you can't make both." - Sifiso Twala

Alex Schools Basketball Tournament came to a spectacular end yesterday as schools and individual players celebrated their achievements.

Seeing those kids playing their hearts out, seeing them disappointed after the final whistle because they lost. Seeing them jumping onto the court because they had managed to conquered the other team. Seeing them celebrating as individual awards were handed out made it all worth the struggle we're going through to see basketball live.

We continue to make development of basketball our number 1 priority and nation building our vision.
