For eleven days, the U.S. Department of State carried out a dynamic basketball Sports Visitor program with South African basketball coaches. For the first portion, the delegation of 12 South African coaches met with U.S. professionals in the sporting profession, held clinics with young American athletes at local schools, participated in an NBA clinic, and engaged in activities focused on team-building and injury prevention in the Washington, D.C., area. For the final days of the program, the group visited Nashville, Tennessee, to watch regional basketball games and participate in Special Olympics sessions.
