Jr. NBA PH press release
Nearly 1,000 young basketball players participated in the first Regional Selection Camp of Jr. NBA Philippines 2019 presented by Alaska at the Manuel Enverga University Foundation in Lucena City on March 9-10.
Staged for the second time in Lucena, the league’s global youth basketball participation program will send four boys and four girls to the National Training Camp at Don Bosco Technical Institute Makati on May 17-19. They will be members of the 40-boy and 40-girl-participant pool that will fill the roster through the four remaining Regional Selection Camps and a select group from the Alaska Power Camp.
The athletes demonstrated a proficiency in fundamental skills and embodied the core values of the game through the two-day camp and are set to compete among talented athletes nationwide for the Jr. NBA All-Star selection. Jr. NBA Philippines All-Stars—comprised of as many as five boys and five girls—will advance to the first Jr. NBA Global Championship Asia Pacific Qualifiers, a week-long selection camp in June that includes top youth players from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
In addition, the Asia Pacific regional competition will provide the 2019 batch of Jr. NBA All-Stars with the opportunity to represent the region in the Jr. NBA World Championships that will be held Aug. 6-11 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Florida. The international event will feature talented youth from the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, China, Mexico, Africa, India and the Asia-Pacific.
Boys and girls ages 10-14 years old can join the upcoming Regional Selection Camps in Baguio (March 23-24), Dumaguete (March 30-31), Butuan (April 13-14) and Metro Manila (April 27-28) by registering at www.jrnba.asia/philippines.
