"If all that sports have to offer is fame, and pleasure in it, then this is giving up too much for something that doesn’t attract you that much in the first place."


About us

The association’s mission is to preserve the name and historical
importance of the basketball player, coach, and bishop Kresimir Cosic.

Throughout all our activities we aim to better the world around us using Kresimir Cosic's life as guide. Kresimir's good spirit, kind heart and an undeniable charisma have shown Croatia and the world that you can do great things if you put the community's needs in front of your individual ones. By striving to better the world around us, only then can we make a change.
