Kuany Kuany Heads to the USA to Pursue Hoop Dreams

By 04/12/2015News

Kuany Kuany has been a participant in the Helping Hoops Sunshine program since it started in 2011. From a skinny boy to a physically imposing young man, we have watched Kuany grow on and off the court, and are truly impressed by his work ethic, community focus and all-around outlook on life.

It is with pleasure that we have recently assisted Kuany and his family access an opportunity to attend high school in Florida, USA at Victory Rock Prep. The mission of Victory Rock is to not only provide an education for aspiring student-athletes, but also produce high-level basketball players capable of becoming college and professional athletes. Through intensive individual training, a weight conditioning program and nutritional plan, the school provides the ultimate environment for realising the dream of one day playing basketball at the professional level.

Kuany, who now stands six-foot six-inches tall, hopes to use the opportunity to secure a college scholarship in future years, and already talks of his big plans to one day give back to the Helping Hoops community should he reach the pinnacle of basketball – the NBA.

Participants like Kuany are role models for the many Helping Hoops participants who are looking to use basketball as a vehicle to open up new possibilities and travel to new places. Helping Hoops has purchased a return flight for Kuany, and we are excited to see what he makes of the opportunity. We look forward to sharing his progress.
