The New York Gauchos is America's most successful after school youth basketball and education program. The Gauchos program was established in 1967 as an adjunct youth service to the Westside Y. The Gauchos have offered inner city boys and girls an opportunity to participate in elite travel team basketball for the past 47 years, with the primary purpose of keeping them out of harms way and focused on staying in school. Since 1967, the program has grown and now serves more than 500 young boys and girls ages 5 to 18 from its world famous Gauchos Gymnasium location with services that include; after school tutoring, college mentoring, prep school placement, SAT/ACT test preparation and a world class AAU basketball program. The vision of combining academic mentoring with competitive basketball is the brainchild of Louis d' Almeida, an advertising executive who had come to America as a young man from Argentina seeking his own education in the United States. He later found his dream education at the Lawrenceville School and later Yale University. The Gauchos has more than 30 former players who have earned professional basketball distinction with the NBA, WNBA and EuroLeague.
So the first season was a time for preparation. This could be chaotic time, but out of chaos always comes order, so definitely a time for planning and preparation. Plans need to be put in place for the future. Seeds needed to be planted. Plans need to be set in place.
The second season was a time for incubation, nurturing, and growth. Oversee, look after and tend to what has been laid.
By the third season they could see the emergence, development a growth of their seeds or plans. Time now to reap the rewards, to harvest, to benefit from all the previous 'work'.
