Each year, the ACG Cares Foundation in partnership with the NBA provides talented young athletes the training to have a professional career in basketball.

The ACG NBA Jump scholarship includes hands-on training from NBA certified coaches, an opportunity to compete with the best at global events and the chance at an interaction with NBA Players at a state-of-the-art facility.

Over the past couple of years, the NBA Academy India has shaped multiple young players like Princepal Singh, Vivek Chauhan, Aashay Verma, and HarshWardhan Tomar who have been chosen to compete and participate alongside boys from NBA Academies across the world [Africa, Australia, China and Latin America].
