THE Jr. NBA Philippines 2013 Regional Selection Camp goes to Davao City on April 1 at the University of Southeastern Philippines.
Players aged 10 to 14 get the chance to become part of this year’s Jr. NBA All Stars as they participate in the two-day camp that will test their physical and basketball smarts.
The first day is devoted to skills tests and drills and the selection of the top 40 performers. The second day will consist of more drills and scrimmages among the top 40. As many as 10 players who will represent the region in the National Training Camp in April will be chosen at the end of the clinics by Jr. NBA coaches led by Coach Sefu Bernard, Director of Basketball Operations, NBA Asia and local Jr. NBA coaches led by PBA Legend Jojo Lastimosa.
The top campers selected in Davao will join the 6 National Training Camp qualifiers previously selected in Dagupan City. More campers will be selected on April 6 and 7 in Lucena City and April 13 and 14 in Manila. More national campers will be culled from the Alaska Power Camp to make up the total 50 participants in the National Training Camp which will be held in Manila on April 26-28.
The highlight of Jr. NBA Philippines 2013 presented by Alaska is the selection of this year’s ten Jr. NBA Philippines 2013 All Stars who will get the chance to play against a counterpart Jr. NBA team abroad.
