The Quartier Ouest association was created in 2006 with the name of B Ball State, and changed its name to Quartier Ouest in 2017 and kept its objective of organizing sports and cultural events linked to basketball.
Among its activities, there are training camps, tournaments, or also caritative operations, like our partnership with the cameroonese organisation AC BAMBAT, which aims to help the development of basketball in Cameroon and everywhere else in Africa. Among our caritative operations, our most important one was the opportunity to send containers to Haïti, in order to help the island when it suffered from an earthquake in 2010.
But what matters most in our association is our famous international basketball tournament called Quartier Ouest, who gave his name to the association herself. It’s a 5*5 tournament which gathers renowned men and women who play basketball at high level, such as Nicolas Batum who plays for the Charlotte Hornets in NBA, or other players like Adrien Moerman, Paul Lacombe, Amel Boudherra, Khadidia Minte who are well known as international players. But it also brings the opportunity to watch teams from everywhere in Europe, and from Japan and the United States(Los Angeles).
And finally, there’s the Frenchies Love L.A trip to Los Angeles, which exists since 2018 and gives to people the opportunity to discover this megalopolis, while visiting the renowned places and watching NBA and NCAA games for real.

OUR STARTING FIVE
1) Los Angeles
For those who have none or little idea of what is this famous city, it can be described as a location where the sea and the desert mix together with urbanism. But what’s more important is that Los Angeles can be considered as the home for some of the biggest brands from sport, cinema, music, and many more.
Among the greatest names close to this metropolis, there are Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Malibu, and even more.
Of all the biggest metropolis in the world, Los Angeles remains the most fascinating and attractive city among them.
2) The American Culture
This camp will give you a complete immersion into the american culture.
We will discover different historical places in Los Angeles, and many more things linked to this city.
We will mix pure basketball training with an important part of physical and athletical work, so you can prepare yourself for your upcoming basketball seasons.
All the technics that we’ll teach you are used by coaches and players who reached the highest level in AAU, NCAA or even NBA.
Our organisation put an emphasis on education. While training, young players will have the opportunity to open their mind.
Respect is the most important thing for us, but also for everyone in the camp, not just for adults.
Our english lessons, and trainings entirely taught in this language will allow anyone to level up with this camp.
5) Step up
Our ultimate goal is to give to young players the opportunity to get an athletic scholarship, so they can study in the United States.
But this is also a way to get opportunities everywhere, so they can join one or more training centers.
