Courts 4 Kids


Courts for Kids is a partnership between The Carmelo Anthony Foundation & Melo’s Syracuse University coach’s Jim & Juli Boeheim Foundation. The program is designed to encourage and help kids in the disadvantaged socioeconomic areas of Syracuse and most recently Puerto Rico.

With the help of sponsors like Time Warner, Chrysler & Jordan, new basketball courts are built – or old ones are refurbished – with the simple goal of giving kids a better place to play and the opportunity to be successful both on the court and in life.
