Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA Philippines 2016 presented by Alaska continues its search for skillful ballers aged 10-14 in Cebu on March 5-6 at Don Bosco Technology Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is the third Regional Selection Camp (RSC) of the NBA’s youth development program this year.
The two-day camp will be run by Jr. NBA Coach Craig Brown together with other Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA coaches from presenting partner Alaska.
Boys and girls born from 2002 to 2006 are encouraged to take advantage of the NBA’s international youth development program where they can learn proper basketball skills and the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA S.T.A.R values of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, a positive Attitude and Respect.
Registration and participation are free. On the first day, participants undergo vitals tests and skills challenges where their scores in vitals tests and individual skills challenges will determine if they will return the following day to undergo more basketball drills and team exercises. On the second day, the remaining participants undergo team drills and get to show off their team and individual skills in the final scrimmages. The top performers in the camp will be selected to represent Visayas in the National Training Camp that will be held in Manila on April 22 to 24. The fourth and last Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA Regional Selection Camp will be held in Manila on April 9 and 10.
The Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA National Training Camp is the third phase of the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA program where 10 Jr. NBA and five Jr. WNBA All-Stars will be chosen from among the top participants in the regional selection camps. They will embark on a unique, overseas NBA experience together with fellow Jr. NBA All-Stars from Southeast Asia later this year.
