Philip Osafo new

Talented Ghanaian youngster Philip Osafo has expressed his delight after participating in the 2013 11th Basketball without Borders programme in South Africa.

The 17-year-old touched based in Accra on Monday night after an exciting four-day event which saw many players across the African continent converge at the King Edward VII School in Johannesburg.

Osafo, who was selected to represent Ghana after featuring in this year’s Sprite Ball Clinic in the country’s second largest city of Kumasi, says the lessons learnt are invaluable.

“It was an amazing feeling which I will never forget in my life. I want to thank Coca-Cola for making my dream a reality,” Osafo told

“I learnt a lot and I believe my understanding of the game has changed drastically.

“Training with other players from different background was revealing and exciting. It was my first time

“I have learnt a number of drills including moves, bounce, dribble, rebounding with my confidence soaring up.

The opportunity to travel outside Ghana has been good and I’m grateful for the chance.”

The 60 young African players participating in the camp took part in a life skills seminar hosted by Amadou Gallo Fall, Masai Ujiri and Thabo Sefolosha. The campers had an opportunity to learn about challenges off the court as well as recognize the importance of discipline and education.
