CampersLearning Basic Basketball Skills

Now on its 8th year,, Alaska and Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA have teamed up for the grassroots training and development of basketball in the country.  Aside from teaching basketball, the partnership have given talented and deserving players a chance to play and have an NBA experience.  They wanted to expand the program to a wider reach and scope in the different regions.   In line with its thrust this year to make it fresh by bringing the program to more schools and communities nationwide, Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA presented by Alaska conducted a series of free open clinics last weekend in different parts of Metro Manila.  Two sessions of clinics were conducted in all venues — one at 9-11 a.m. and another from 1-4 p.m.

Other coaches who conducted the learning sessions include PBA Legends Rodney Santos, Eric de la Cuesta and Topex Robinson, and Perlas Pilipinas national players Melissa Jacob, Ish Tiu, MJ Galicia and Justine Formata.

Alaska continues their partnership with Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA this year to nurture young boys and girls become better individuals and encourage them to embrace a healthy lifestyle not just by drinking milk but also by leading an active lifestyle through sports.
