Globetrotters join with fitness leader to host basketball clinics

For the first time ever, the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters are partnering with fitness club industry leader 24 Hour Fitness to host 120 summer skills clinics for youth across the U.S.

Designed to take fans, ages 6-14, behind the curtain to see the magic behind the Globetrotters’ electrifying basketball skills and tricks, participants also will learn about the importance of staying active and eating healthy. The innovative clinics will take place at approximately 40 – 24 Hour Fitness clubs in nine states during a 10- week period this summer, including locations in South Florida.

“We are excited to partner with 24 Hour Fitness on this innovative program that combines the world’s most entertaining basketball team and a national fitness leader,” said Harlem Globetrotters CEO Kurt Schneider. “These clinics are an extension of our brand and allow our fans to experience unparalleled interaction with our talented players, while promoting health and wellness for children in a fun setting.”

Each clinic will be conducted by current Globetrotter players. Two three-hour clinics will take place on the following dates and times at local 24 Hour Fitness locations:

June 18, 8400 Mills Dr. in Kendall, 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 2-5 p.m., and June 19, 20851 S. Dixie Hwy. in Cutler Bay, 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 2-5 p.m.

“Like the Harlem Globetrotters, 24 Hour Fitness believes in the importance of keeping our children active through physical activity and sports,” said Randy Drake, senior vice president of fitness and business development, 24 Hour Fitness.“We are excited to be able to offer these unique and entertaining basketball clinics to our members and partner with the iconic Globetrotters.”

As part of the partnership, the Harlem Globetrotters will offer participants a voucher for a complimentary ticket to a 2013 World Tour game. Additionally, 24 Hour Fitness will offer free three-day passes and discounts on club memberships to parents of clinic participants.
