Jr NBA Philippines kicks off to select top 40 boys and 40 girls for the National Training Camp

As announced by the National Basketball Association, the Jr. NBA Philippines 2019 presented by Alaska returns for the 12th consecutive year and it continues to expand to provide youth in the region the opportunity to represent the Asia Pacific in the second Jr. NBA Global Championship, a youthful basketball tournament for the top 13- and 14-year-old boys and girls teams from around the world that will be held August 6 - 11 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Fla.

Jr NBA Philippines tipped off Manila on April 27-28 with a train-the-trainers clinic for teachers and coaches program, which aims to teach the fundamental skills and core values of the game at the grassroots level. The event once again included nationwide youth clinics, coaching workshops, and training camps.

New this year, the Jr. NBA Global Championship Asia Pacific Regional Competition will expand to include youth from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. As many as five boys and five girls from the Jr. NBA Philippines National Training Camp will be selected to participate in the first Jr. NBA Global Championship Asia Pacific Qualifiers, a week-long event in June that will feature top youth players from the region. The top-performing 10 boys and 10 girls will represent the Asia Pacific in the Jr. NBA Global Championship.

Regional selection camps will be staged in Lucena, Baguio, Metro Manila and a city in Visayas and Mindanao to select the top 40 boys and 40 girls that will advance to the National  Training Camp in Metro Manila on May 17 - 19, which will feature an NBA and WNBA player or legend.


Jr. NBA Philippines furthers Alaska Sports' mission to provide proper nutrition to youth through its leading brands Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink and Alaska Chocolate Powdered Milk Drink - and by encouraging an active and healthy lifestyle.

The 2019 edition of Jr. NBA Philippines is presented by Alaska, with AXA, Gatorade, Globe, Panasonic, Rexona, and Vivo as official partners. ABS-CBN S + A, basketball TV, and NBA Premium TV are the official NBA Broadcasters of Jr. NBA Philippines.
