Through the camps, we will be teaching our vision and setting up the foundations that will lead in the future to the creation of the Lapantha Academy.
❖ The Hamchetou Maiga-Ba Foundation will provide basketball camps in Mali with a focus on teaching basketball and life skills. The camp will be 3-5 days of teaching and providing educational opportunities not only to the school aged boys & girls, but also to coaches.
❖ The boys & girls will go through basketball drills emphasizing on individual skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, goal setting, self-esteem, work ethic, discipline and winning attitude. They will also have specific educational sessions on use of technology, importance of education, financial literacy and health topics.
❖ The Foundation also aims at partnering with the local coaches associations to foster the trainings of said coaches and ensure that the impact of the camps doesn’t stop after the 3-5 days. Providing access to continued information / trainings to maintain / enhance the level will be a key component in helping our youth take advantage of the opportunities.
❖ The camp will be led by experienced coaches and players.
❖ Camp Lapantha will promote unified basketball by including Special Olympics Mali’s athletes with intellectual disabilities.
