The ………. club in partnership with the Quartier Ouest association and its solidarity program Just A Kid From Africa is organizing the 1st edition of the U16-U18 Basketball World championship from Friday July 5 to Sunday July 7, 2024 has ………….

The Quartier Ouest association is a national and international reference in the organization of basketball-related events. For example, the Quartier Ouest tournament is one of the three most important street basketball tournaments in Europe.

The first edition of this 5-on-5 basketball tournament will bring together 8 teams per category.

In addition to sporting performances, we are working to give an ever more spectacular dimension to our event, by adding a more streetball character.

The Quartier Ouest association, located in Normandy, has more than 15 years of existence to the point of being considered a reference in France and internationally, in the organization of sporting events linked to basketball. Among the latter, we can find courses for young people, humanitarian missions, but also tournaments, the most famous of which is called the West Quarter. This event brings together professional and amateur players from all over France, Europe, Africa, the USA, and even Japan. We were able to see French international Nicolas Batum, player for the NBA team the Philadelphia 76ers.

– A sports and urban media, sapsnshoes.com.
– A brand inspired by the codes of fashion, Streetwear and Sport.
– But also a total of 10,000 followers, on Facebook and Instagram.

The profits from this event will be used to finance and support our actions in Africa via the Just A Kid From Africa project, by providing our material, financial and logistical support.


The main objective of this program is to combine two factors that are very important to us: Education and Sport.

The missions that we wish to pursue are broken down according to the following objectives:
–Support for education, youth support, environment and sport institutions.
–Accompaniment and Support to the national and international sports movement.

Our strong points :
–Education: Our activities include support for education and training projects, as well as the development of programs and tools related to this, as well as accompaniment and support to organizations for artistic and cultural projects.
–Social action: Sustainable development will be one of our priorities from a long-term perspective, integrating constraints linked to the environment and the functioning of society via awareness-raising actions.
–Women’s sport: The project aims to establish itself as a springboard for African women’s sport, particularly through a range of competitions entirely dedicated to women.
We therefore wish to confirm our attachment to the women’s cause, by mobilizing our energies, our capital, our skills and our organizational capacities to develop this sporting branch on African soil.
–Health and Adapted Sport: One of our objectives is to offer activities that are suitable on a mental and physical level, in continuity with the care provided by medical establishments.
In addition to doing good for the body, practicing a sport often allows people who are convalescing, isolated or with disabilities to find a social connection.
