In June of 2012, CTI embarked on an incredible journey. An American basketball team arrived in Pyongyang, North Korea. CTI aimed to begin breaking down walls of stereotypes, political barriers and expectations that have been decades in the making. The trip then was a success and so was its follow up trip later that year.
On November 11, 2015, CTI will be boarding a plane in Shenyang, China in route to return to the DPRK in hopes to replicate what it started over 3 years earlier. This year we are excited to feature the coaches of the International Basketball Training Academy of North Carolina. This year’s trip to North Korea and China will feature IBTA’s coaches’ Mike, Nate, Seth and James and also CTI’s Luke and Larry.
We are excited to see the athletes in Pyongyang in action again and see what doors open for us as we attempt to break down more walls and help develop the Korean athletes to be the best that they can be and change live one high five at a time!
