Hoops Creating Hope

Started in Chennai, in 2012, Hoops Creating Hope is a program¬†targeted at the less-privileged¬†students. The program seeks to develop skills in leadership, understanding of gender equality, build participant character, teamwork skills, communication skills, and instill in students the confidence to pursue future goals. Basketball, in Crossover’s signature HCH program, is viewed as a vehicle of change — as quoted by Crossover, “students are able to learn on the court and in the classroom through play and guided experiential learning rather than more hours in a traditional classroom”.

At HCH, students learn about Crossover’s five prime principles through sessions linking academics, individual skills, team building, physical conditioning, and yoga. This event attracts a range of stakeholders, from thought leaders, student voices, coaches, and educators from the US and India, who all respect the importance of sport in a student’s overall education.
