THE NCAA held a one-of-a-kind kiddies basketball tournament between member schools that opened Sunday at the Mapua gymnasium.
Dubbed ‘NCAA Kiddies Basketball Tournament,’ the event has a 12-under and 14-under competition where kids will have the opportunity to experience being a varsity player of their school at a young age.
The NCAA already has a college and high school division, and the kiddies event being held for the first time by a collegiate league will further enhance the grassroots program of the NCAA schools.
“We want to make the NCAA truly a national league by making it available to the grassroots,” said NCAA Kiddies Basketball chairman Fr. Victor Calvo, OP, a member of the NCAA Management Committee representing Letran.
Marlon Carlos of Emilio Aguinaldo College has been appointed as commissioner of the tournament.
