Hoops Creating Hope
Crossover's 2013 Academy a Huge Success
After two weeks of our Academy from July 8 - 19, in the coastal city of Chennai, Crossover’s 2nd Hoops Creating Hope program impacted over 200 students. The students learned about Crossover's four pillars of success in leadership, character, teamwork, and communication and how they applied towards their academics, individual skills, teamwork, and team defense.
Crossover would like to especially thank Raju Venkataraman and American International School Chennai for their dedicated support and belief in the program.
To read about the impact of the program from an educator's perspective - Ram Sundaram - a Teach For India Teaching Fellow wrote the this letter to Crossover.

On April 20, 2013 Crossover Basketball and Scholars Academy hosted the first Hoops Creating Hope Co-Ed 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament at The George Washington University's Smith Center (Washington, DC).

Twelve teams participated in a double elimination tournament with first and second place taking home prizes that were donated by local businesses. Prizes included merchandise from the Washington Wizards, gift cards from Rustico, P.F. Chang's, and Booeymonger as well as a couple month long memberships to Sport & Health.
