John seen here teaching the theory aspect of the game

John is an American currently in Cape Coast. His love for basketball brought him in contact with Hoops Care. He helps in running various training routine on the basketball court on a daily basis. John, who is over seventy shows strong determination in what ever he is doing for the kids. He has gone as far as donating a white board for the studies of the boys and girls in the HCI extra classes. After a lengthy discussion with the HCI staff, John has decided to introduce the game of kick ball to the children. So far the children are catching up and there has been several theory an practice sections going on. We are glad that the children are having fun in learning a new game in a fun and interactive manner.
