A total of 1,114 aspiring champions have registered to give it a shot in the Manila leg of the Regional Selection Camp at Don Bosco Technical Institute on April 9 – 10, 2016. The Regional Selection Camp program aims to discover athletes who possess the right skills and who exhibit the Jr. NBA-WNBA STAR (Sportsmanship, Teamwork, positive Attitude, Respect) values. These values also are aligned with the values that Alaska Milk aims to instil in each child – the values of discipline, hard work and determination.

The intensity was creeping up during the final day of the selection camp. With just a few slots left to fill in, the athletes had to put their best foot forward in each scrimmage, listen to the coaches’ instructions and live the STAR values. The Jr. NBA-WNBA coaches headed by Coaches Craig Brown and Jeff Cariaso certainly may have had a hard time picking the most deserving athletes. Just before the day wears out, Coach Craig made the big announcement which everyone was all waiting for.

The eight girls joining the National Training camp are: Dianne Camille Nolasco, Lalaine Gonzales, Carly Monreal, Lindsey Nacional, Magda Lioui Flores, Ma Cecilia Quilenderino, Princess Marie Villarin, and Jonalyn Bongalos.

The 16 boys who are expected to raise the bar for their games in the National Training Camp are: Mark Glenn Gabon, Luis Gabriel Aguila, Anjelo Raphael Argente, Jhondhel Austria, Jearico Nunez, Kai Zachary Sotto, Andrei Philip Lechoncito, Mark Nicole Lucban, Reich Randell Villegas, Prince Junnell De Belen, Pauloh Villarin, Patrick Lance Inting, Jericho Ross Paglinawan, Miguel Rey Luis Tan, Devon Dein Diez and Russel Ducanes.

Expect these young basketball enthusiasts to make the most of their stint at the National Training Camp as anyone of them can become one of the Jr. NBA – WNBA All Stars. The Jr. NBA-WNBA Philippine All Stars are set to meet other Jr. NBA-WNBA All Stars from participating Southeast Asian countries in the NBA Experience towards the last quarter of the year.

Jr. NBA – WNBA Philippines is a venue for children who have the passion for the sport and have the aspirations to excel. Alaska believes that these holistic sports programs help young children learn the importance of proper nutrition in order for them to become champions in their chosen field, and in life in general.

Jr. NBA – WNBA Philippines is presented by Alaska.
