We embarked on such a project as a result of establishing the infrastructure of skiing and raising athletes who will represent our city both at national and international level in the upcoming period, and as a result of covering all expenses after the grant of the ministry within the scope of this project. After giving ski training to 13 of our students here, we will give rafting training in the next stages and give seminars about them and give the message of a good athlete and a good student to the society.”
Recep Sönmez, one of the students, stated that he did not have much to do with sports before and said, “We were damaging our body by smoking. After coming to sports, we quit smoking and took a step towards a better life. We used to not think of ourselves and now we realize that what we did before was bad. It makes our sports time pass well. Skiing is very nice and I loved it very much, I thank everyone who contributed ”.
