Garanti's Support Projects for Basketball
12 Giant Men Basketball Schools
The 12 Giant Men Basketball Schools engage in activities that make children adopt the basketball culture to popularize it in Anatolia and to internalize it. We support the 12 Giant Men Basketball Schools that were started with the cooperation of Turkish Basketball Federation since 2002.
Young basketball players that join the Academy from all over Turkey get together in different cities in tournament seasons and attend various social activities. Within the context of the project, over 55.000 children between age 7-12, in 75 centers got basketball training until today. Together with the parents of these pupils, a basketball family of nearly 220 thousand people was created.
Due to the quality basketball training it provides, 12 Giant Men Basketball Schools brought new gifted players in Turkish basketball. Among the pupils that started paying basketball at 12 Giant Men Basketball Schools, there is Enes Kanter who plays in Utah Jazz and other athletes that play in the Junior National Team as well as in teams of the Regional League, 2. League and even 1. League. Due to the basketball skills that they gain, pupils that are trained at 12 Giant Men Basketball Schools get full scholarship in leading educational institutions and get a chance to continue their education life with better conditions.
We believe that kids trained at 12 Giant Men Basketball Schools will take part in basketball as future athletes, coaches, managers, referees or conscious spectator, and protect basketball culture and awareness.
