Hoops Creating Hope

Crossover's 2014 Academy - July 7-18. Enrolling now.

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.

Crossover Basketball and Scholars Academy Presents a Co-Ed 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

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). The purpose of the tournament was to raise awareness as well as funding for our 2013 Hoops Creating Hope program, which benefits school-aged children in Chennai, India.

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. The event helped raised $2,000 that will go directly toward the 2013 Hoops Creating Hope program.
