Compton launches Nike cage camp

The Philippine Star 03/28/2006

Looking to contribute to the country’s quest to regain its lofty standing in the Asian basketball scene, Philippine Basketball League star Alex Compton and his peers have launched the Nike Elite Basketball Camp, a unique grassroots development program for high school level cagers.

Under the program, 80 high school basketball players from Metro Manila aged 14 to 16 will get the chance to further hone their skills in an all-expense paid, six-day cage camp starting April 7 at Brent Mamplasan in Laguna.

Chosen from a field of 300 aspirants by a group of professional players, trainers and coaches led by Ato Badolato, the 80 cagers will be housed for six days at Brent School where they can interact with teachers and fellow players. To ensure all players will get personalized training, one trainer will be assigned to every five camp participants.

"I’ve read the country’s history. The Philippines was the best in Asia for a long time. We’d like to help bring back those glory days," said Compton, the camp’s project director, in a press briefing yesterday at the Wasabi Bistro and Bar in Makati.

"I benefited from good coaching, starting when I was seven. Now we are bringing the same kind of program here. Excited ako kasi matutulungan namin ‘yung mga bata na ma-improve yung game nila," added Compton, an American citizen who grew up in the Philippines.

Compton and Badolato will work with several other top trainers and players including NBA veteran David Wood, Coach E basketball camp founder Eric Altamirano and former PBA star Ronnie Magsanoc in the day activities.

Evening sessions will feature Alaska coach Tim Cone and Kirk Collier, among others.

Compton said the players, led by La Salle Zobel’s David Webb and Thomas Ian Babilonia of San Beda-Taytay, will get to mingle with the pros for six straight days, adding players like Rob Johnson, BJ Manalo, Dennis Madrid and Joel Co will share rooms with the camp participants, giving them a chance to share thoughts while outside the playing areas. Webb is the grandson of former PBA player and Sen. Freddie Webb while Babilonia is the son of former PBA center Guido Babilonia.

The top 20 participants will play on April 12 in an All-Star game to be shown live on Studio 23. Three players will also be chosen to attend the Nike All-Asia Camp in China in June to be attended by top coaches like Phil Jackson of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Compton said he is confident the camp will grow and eventually be able to accommodate more aspiring players from across the country.

"We’re just starting and there are logistical issues. But with the help of our friends and sponsors we should be able to reach other areas in the country.

"Basta gusto mong matuto, puwede kang makasali sa Elite Basketball Camp. Kahit sa Batanes ka pa galing o kahit sa Tawi-Tawi," Compton said.

The Elite Basketball Camp is a program of the

International Basketball Academy. Other programs under the IBA are the Coach E Basketball School, Academy for Coaching Excellence and School of Advance Refereeing.

In Huddle : ‘Filipinos have what it takes to be in the NBA’

BEIJING, China -- Every year around this time, Adidas Philippines selects the two best players from the 15-year-old and under category of the three-on-three Streetball tournament to send to the Adidas Superstar Camp where they undergo training under world experts and get the chance to play two-on-two with NBA cagers.

This year, the anointed ones were 6-foot-5 Vince Fran of La Salle Greenhills, son of former PBA cager Raymund Fran, and 6-foot Kevin John Gamboa of Ateneo. The two left for Beijing this week to join 62 other players (aged 18 and below)from all over Asia, in the 5-day basketball camp.

Aside from honing their skills and learning something new, Vince and Kevin will aspire to make it to the All-Star team which will undergo further training in Atlanta, Georgia in July.

The All-Stars will be composed of 10 players culled from a group of 24 semifinalists who participated in the Beijing camp. The Philippines’ Ken Barracoso made it to this group two years ago in

At the Camp, we had the chance to interview NBA cagers Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic and TJ Ford of the Milwaukee Bucks, Tracy McGrady’s personal trainer Wayne Hall, and legendary NBA coach and player KC Jones, who celebrated his 74th birthday last Thursday.

What I found most interesting in the round of interviews conducted separately was the consensus among the four that the Filipinos basically have what it takes to make it to the NBA. Despite our height disadvantage.

All of them agreed that there is a place for the small man in the NBA.

For TJ Ford, who is considered Filipino-size at 5-foot-11, the intangibles come into play for the aspirant.

“If you’re small like me, you have to work ten times harder and you have to be ten times smarter,” he said.

He listed down confidence, personality, work ethics and belief in oneself as survival factors in the NBA.

***

Wayne Hall, who has been T-Mac’s personal trainer for 10 years, cites 6-2 Carlos Arroyo of the Utah Jazz as a perfect specimen of the NBA small man.

An NBA player has to be complete, he said. He has to be good in every aspect of the game, especially if he’s deficient in height.

Hall, who said his claim to fame is the development of T-Mac, was in the Philippines with the NBA superstar six years ago when he was not yet a superstar.

“I’ve watched the PBA. You have very good players,” he said.

According to him, what hinders our development is the lack of facilities. Our drills, even those being used here in Beijing and other countries in Asia, are also way behind, compared to the United States.

***

From a field of 64 players, most of them giants, our very own duo of Kevin and Vince have caught the attention of veteran coach KC Jones, who admits he has “developed an eye for talent.”

“Give these boys three to five years and they’ll be a force to contend with,” KC said.

Kevin and Vince played two-on-two with the two NBA cagers, the duo of Kevin and Dwight Howard versus Vince and TJ Ford.

Kevin and Dwight won.

10 hoop camp standouts make it to Atlanta

First posted 03:44am (Mla time) June 01, 2006

Editor's Note: Published on page A22 of the June 1, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer


BEIJING, China -- The top 10 players of the recent Adidas Superstar Camp will participate in the next leg scheduled in Atlanta, Georgia on July 4-19.

Led by MVP Zhou Peng of China, the camp standouts came from the most promising basketball talents from the Asia Pacific region with players from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, the Philippines, Korea and Japan coming over.

The 6-foot-7 Zhou will be joined by seven other Chinese players, an Australian and a Japanese in Georgia next month.

It was the biggest superstar camp in Beijing with newcomer Japan swelling this year’s list of countries to eight after China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, Korea and the Philippines.

A total of 62 players attended with 20 making it to the All-Star Game roster, where the Dwight Howard team ripped the TJ Ford Selection, 88-72.

“We learned many new things here, which we intend to share with our coach and teammates back home,” said Kevin John Gamboa of Ateneo de Manila University, who was sent to the camp together with Vince Fran of La Salle Greenhills.

Both were personally handpicked by Adidas Philippines sports marketing director Goody Custodio to join the Beijing Camp.

“We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to train under NBA greats like KC Jones, Dwight Howard, TJ Ford, Detlef Schrempf and NBA All-Star guard Tracy McGrady’s personal conditioning coach, Wayne Hall,” said the 15-year-old Kevin, who was joined in the trip by his father, Jojo, who played collegiate ball for the Ateneo.

Supplementing the court training, a course initiated by and taught by Hall titled “Next Level Fitness,” was also offered.

“Basketball is a physically demanding sport, but the ‘Next Level Fitness’ classes will help players by covering the importance of a balanced diet and appropriate physical training to improve their performance,” Hall said.

With the correct training, the participants have the potential to reach higher levels of performance. Beth Celis

3 Webmasters to join Nike Camp
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 12/27/2006

Only three University of Cebu (UC) Junior Webmasters are joining in the Nike Elite Basketball Camp tryouts at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuit gym on January 28 next year.

Coach Reggie Licanda said the three are Robinson Mohammad, Billy Connors and Pelayo Cabañero.

The UC Junior Webmasters are the CESAFI juniors champion, defeating the UV Baby Lancers in the finals, 2-1.

UC is among the four schools, which already named its participants to the Nike tryouts here in Cebu. The other schools are host Sacred Heart, USC Baby Warriors and USP-F Baby Panthers.

Still expected to submit its line-up is UV.

The Nike Elite Basketball Camp in Mamplasan, Laguna will be held March 30 to April 4 next year. It is the gathering of the best high school players nationwide wherein the best campers will be chosen into the All-Star game.

The Nike Elite Camp director is Alex Compton. The other coaches assisting Compton are Eric Altamirano and Edmundo "Ato" Badolato.

Elite cage camp listup ends Jan. 8
visayandailystar.com




The deadline for the submission of application forms for the 2007 Elite Basketball Camp tryouts in Western Visayas is Jan. 8 in Bacolod City.

Coach Rommel Rasmo, who is assisting the International Basketball Academy facilitate the tryouts, yesterday said that the coaches should submit the applications to Dexter Dy at the Bacolod Visayan Lumber. The tryouts for high school players from Region VI, which is backed by Nike and IBA, is set from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on January 21 at the St. John's Institute Activity Center

Project director Alex Compton earlier said there will be no limitations in the number of WV aspiring cagers who will be included in the camp, but only 80 slots are up for grabs nationwide.

Compton said that they are staging the tryouts because they want to maximize the individual skills of the best young players in the country.

The camp is scheduled from March 30 to April 4 next year at Brent International School in Mamplasan, Laguna with former Philippine Basketball Association mentor Eric Altamirano and 10-year National Basketball Association veteran David Wood among others being part of the coaching staff.

Compton said that players from public schools will also be allowed to join the tryouts as long as they are enrolled this school year because they want to instill that education is important.

Elite will shoulder the expenses, including the fare, accommodation, food, jerseys, shorts and shoes, of the cagers who will be chosen for the six-day camp that is open to players below 18 years old, he said.

The mythical five after the camp, which has calendared skill-building workshops, scrimmages, truth talk sessions and an all-star game, will be sponsored by Nike to participate in the All Asia Camp in China, Compton added.

Nike Camp starts today
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 01/27/2007

The best high school players here in Cebu will convene on Sunday in the Nike Elite Camp at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuit gym along Gen. Maxilom Ave.

The whole day tryouts, which aim to discover the best high school players in Cebu, will be conducted by ex-pro and coach Eric Altamirano. The tryout is sanctioned by the International Basketball Academy (IBA) headed by Fil-Am Alex Compton.

Today will be the briefing of coaches at the SHS gym.

Majority of the coaches under the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) including juniors champion University of Cebu (UC) Junior Webmasters are sending players.

But it is University of the Visayas (UV) Baby Lancers, which is sending the most number of entries as the school administration decided to field in the whole team.

The other teams which will be joining are USC of Roland Remedio, USP-F of Camilo Go and SHS of John Hortillano.

Cebu Nike Elite Camp coordinator Ramel Rasmo said that Altamirano and San Beda Red Cubs coach Edmundo "Ato" Badolato will jointly brief the coaches.

Those who will be chosen from Cebu will be sent to Mamplasan, Laguna during the summer for a one-week camp and in the final day of the camp, the potential players will be divided into two teams to play in the All-Star Game.

Transportation, board and lodging for all the players who will be sent to Laguna will be shouldered by Nike plus they will be given Nike outfits such as shoes and basketball jerseys.

The coaches of the players, who are chosen will also be given privileges such as free board and lodging in Mamplasan and will be given Nike apparels but they will shoulder their own expenses in going to Laguna.

Wood back for elite camp
SPORTING CHANCE By Joaquin M. Henson
The Philippine Star 03/08/2007

Former NBA star David Wood returns for the second straight year to join Welcoat guard Alex Compton and coach Eric Altamirano in conducting the country’s only all-expense-paid camp for high school standouts at the Brent campus in Mamplasan, Laguna, on March 30-April 4.

Only 80 Filipino players will participate in the six-day Nike-sponsored elite basketball camp. They will be chosen from 130 nominees in tryouts held in Bacolod, Cebu, Davao, Pampanga, Baguio, Lipa and Metro Manila over five weekends. At least 500 players from more than 100 high schools signed up for the tryouts starting at St. John’s Institute in Bacolod last Jan. 21 and ending at La Salle Lipa last Sunday.

Five high school players from Singapore and five from Malaysia are also attending.

Compton, the project director, said the camp for 18-and-under prepsters addresses the clamor of parents and sponsors to organize an immersion camp that will take the future stars to the next level of competition in an intense environment.

"We are looking to transform the landscape of Philippine basketball," said Compton. "There is no other specialized training available for top high school players in the country. We are focusing not only on basketball fundamentals but also values. Through our truth talk sessions, we hope to bring out the importance of hard work, discipline and integrity in leading towards success."

Compton pointed out three elements that make the elite camp one of a kind.

"First, it’s not an open camp," said Compton. "We’re inviting only the best of the best after exhaustive tryouts. Second, we’re not charging a single centavo. And third, it’s a comprehensive six-day camp where the kids eat, sleep and play together. We’re splitting the players three to a room with a senior or kuya as mentor."

Among the kuyas expected in the camp are Tony Boy Espinosa, Dennis Madrid, B. J. Manalo, Ralph Rivera, Rob Johnson, Daniel Booker and Josh Manthe. Coaches invited to speak at the camp include Tim Cone, Norman Black, Kirk Collier and Chot Reyes.

The camp will equip the players with the skills, strategies and mental preparation for a game. It will feature skills development drills, a variety of workshops and character building sessions to prepare the players for the game of life.

Wood, 42, played for Chicago, Houston, San Antonio, Detroit, Golden State, Phoenix, Dallas and Milwaukee in a seven-year NBA career that ended in 1997. As an import, he led Purefoods to fourth place in the 2001 PBA second conference, averaging 20.6 points in 16 games with a high of 32. Last year, Wood was in Manila for the first-ever elite program that brought outstanding campers Mike Gamboa, Joshua Webb and Dave Marcelo to an All-Asia gathering with NBA stars Nate Robinson and Jason Richardson in China.

The China trip assembled 60 top Asian high schoolers for 10 days. Gamboa, the shortest camper at 5-7, was picked among the top 20 participants by Robinson and Richardson.

"This is a long-term commitment to Philippine basketball," said camp consultant Altamirano, a former PBA coach. "Nike has agreed to sponsor us until 2011. To prepare for this year’s camp, Alex spent two weeks with former New Jersey Nets assistant coach Ed Schilling in the US last summer. Ato Badolato of San Beda is also in the camp staff as a consultant."

Altamirano pointed out that it’s no accident that the UAAP’s mythical first team last season was made up of elite campers, including Gamboa, Erwin Duran and Socrates Rivera.

"We’re teaching the best to get better," said Altamirano. "Aside from the elite program, our group (International Basketball Academy) also has camps for kids (Coach E basketball school), referees (SOAR or school of advanced refereeing) and coaches (ACE or academy for coaching excellence)."

Compton said Brent athletic director Charles Bates and coaches Ben Compton and Erwin Sanchez are making available the school’s dorm and sports facilities for the campers at no charge. "Everyone’s pitching in to ensure the success of the program because we know it’s good for Philippine basketball," said Compton.

Had a chance to watch the game on tv yesterday. Coach Ato is scouting talents all over the country again.

Kirk Long - first time I saw this guy play. Id say he is a real deal with his height. Mobility, dribbling, slash and shooting.

Gamboa - running the floor at full speed with overall control over the ball is a beauty of basketball to watch.

Rivera - he has indeed the signs of being the future Arwind.

Dave Marcelo - Baby Dwight. Hope he wears jersey #12. Parang medyo pumayat sya since the last time I saw him. His free throw stroke did not only improve, swabeee ;D

Garbo - This guy will be a real deal scorer/slasher in college.

Mga incoming college freshmen ang nasa Metro Manila line-up. At the start of the program, sabi ni Compton na hindi na sila inimbita to join the camp proper kasi marami sa kanila are already practicing with their college teams. That's why they referred to the MM all-stars as Nike Elite alumni.

I think sila Buenafe and Arvie Bringas attended the camp as incoming HS seniors. Baka maglaro sila mamaya sa Black vs. White Nike Elite All-stars.

What was the name of the provincial big guy? He was a good inch or so taller than Marcelo. Frankly he looked AT LEAST 6-6. Almagordo ba yun? Medyo limited pa ang mobility but that's nothing training under an elite coach can't fix.

Kagabi naman sa black vs. white, there was a 14 year old kid from western visayas who I heard was 6-6??? Pacheco ba yun? Dang, what are they feeding them down there...

Philip Paredes just transferred to San Beda-Rizal after spending last school year at Sacred Heart Montessori in Cagayan deo Oro City. The kid has the moves, just needs polishing. At his height of 6'4" and growing, Paredes was dominating the competition in Cagayan de Oro so his coaches then would let him practice with college players.

I was looking forward ot seeing Faith big man Vince Burke but was disappointed, i.e. I think he did not play during the Black versus White All Star game. I saw him play just once against a visiting team from a foreign Christian university and he showed polish and patience in his game.

As for the players I did see in the game:

Kirk Long is for real and seems redy to contribute right away in college.

Soc Rivera will be the next Arwind Santos if and when he ever gets the mental toughness of the two-time UAAP MVP. Right now Riveras is only all too aware that his length and athlticism allow him to get away with a lot of things thus stymieing his overall development.

Mike Gamboa will make Ateneo regret not doing mroe to convince him to stay on as a Blue Eagle. He is truly a dynamic pointguard in a tough and compact package. His passing and handles are electric.

Jonas Paguia may have been the best big man in the game, even better (if our San Beda friends will forgive me) than Dave Marcelo. Paguia can run, hold the post and even shoot from outside, giving him one heckuva package.

Marcelo really has gotten bigger. Justing Chua told me Marcelo was bigger than him and I believe it, Marcelo looked at least 6-6 and 225. He seemed a little slow of foot though and got called for a lot of travelling and charging violations.

Speaking of Justin Chua, where the heck was he? SOmeone of that standing should have easily been lined up.

Garvo Lanete has great hands and can catch and finish strong using either hand. But he needs to upgrade his handles and passing if he wants to play both guard spots in college.

The game that you described was that between the Metro Manila All-Stars vs. Provincial All-Stars. The Metro Manila boys were all Nike Elite alumni. This year, the camp excluded all Metro Manila prospects who are moving up to college for the coming school year. In contrast, kids like Lozano (UP) from Davao and Salvado (Adamson) from Iloilo were still invited to the camp, and were part of the Provincial team. Long, Gamboa, et. al. were invited back only for this game.

The Metro Manila campers played in the Black vs White game, which was shown the following night. Burke and Chua both played in this game.

^ Justin Chua was playing for the Black team that was shown last Saturday night, on the same team as the UPIS players, Tolentino and Marata. He had a strong first half, but the guards kept on shooting the ball in the second half, so not too many post plays were run for Chua.

I'm looking forward to the future battles between former FEU-FERN star players in Soc Rivera vs. Jonas Paguia, when FEU and UP meet in the next few years. That would be great to watch, indeed.

For the love of the game
SPORTING CHANCE By Joaquin M. Henson

Eric Banes is a self-made man. He relies only on himself to get things done. So that if things don’t work out, he only has himself to blame. But more often than not, when he sets his mind to doing something, he gets the job done.

Banes, 40, loves basketball. He teaches the game on a personalized basis to high school and college players, 12 sessions at a time. Age doesn’t matter. Some of his students are Dom Fergus, Mike Fernandez, Paulo Rabat, Gabby Albano, Rey Yap, James Panaligan, PBA legend Hector Calma’s 12-year-old son Andres and former Olympian Paeng Hechanova’s grandson Rafael III.

“I started individualized training in 2004,” said Banes. “I’m on call. I usually teach at the Palms Country Club in Alabang. My methodology is to give my students the opportunity to improve their game in the most efficient way, to maximize their abilities and most importantly, to develop successful, goal-oriented young men and women, prepared to be successful in life.”

Banes fell in love with the game at an early age and was a waterboy of the San Beda College varsity that won back-to-back NCAA seniors championships in 1978-79 under coach Bonnie Carbonnell. He was in Grade 6 at the time and watched wide-eyed as Red Lion heroes Frankie Lim, Chito Loyzaga, Jayvee Yango, Chuck Barreiro and Cholo Martin brought honors to the Mendiola school.

In college, Banes tried out for the San Beda varsity but couldn’t make the grade.

“The players were bigger and better,” he recalled. “But my love for the game didn’t dampen my spirits. I transformed myself from a frustrated player to a teaching player. My friend Dindo (Pumaren) introduced me to his brother Manong (Derick) who took me in as his understudy for three months then brought me to Franz. I learned more tricks of the trade from Franz and with the La Salle varsity, I began to hone my teaching skills. Al Chua and Louie Alas also gave me a lot of insights into the game.”

In 1999, Banes took a trip to Indiana and enrolled in a two-week training program under coach Bobby Knight. He paid his own way as an investment for the future. At Indiana, Banes realized developing a player’s “all-around” skills wasn’t enough to get ahead. The real test was developing a player’s individual skills.

After brief stints in the coaching staff of La Salle and San Beda Alabang, Banes formed a group to teach basketball fundamentals in groups of 25 to 30 high school and college players over two sessions. Eventually, he did it on his own, without assistants or consultants, to provide personalized tutoring and undivided attention.

Last November, Banes decided to make another investment, enrolling at the Joe Abunassar Impact Basketball Camp in Carson City. He spent a week taking up a mentorship course at Athletes Performance, an Abunassar-related program, under Phoenix Suns’ conditioning consultant Nick Winkelman and another week of exposure to individualized training. Banes also flew to Boston for a meeting with Celtics assistant coach Kevin Eastman, president of the Nike Skills Academy.

“The mentorship course included strength and conditioning,” said Banes. “Athletes Performance trains high school, college and professional athletes in all sports. I saw David Beckham training at AP and he’s just one of the many stars who go there during the offseason. The training was hands-on and not the type of training where you just observe and try to memorize what they’re doing. I had to undergo the actual rigors of training by doing things myself. It was exhausting and tiresome. The training was from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. I had sore muscles every day and I could barely lift my arms on the last day. But it was worth every penny I paid.”

Banes was the only Filipino enrolled in the course. Others were fitness trainers and Los Angeles firefighters. “If this course can make firemen ready and fit to do their job, it can make amateur and professional athletes stronger and develop more staying power while playing to their full capacity,” he said. “I learned the basics of functional movement screen, regeneration, upper and lower body strength, plyometrics, multi-directional speed, energy system development, absolute speed and nutrition. I’ve incorporated all of these into my individual teaching.”

At the Abunassar Camp where the Philippine team has trained, Banes said he picked up a truckload of pointers. “They train individual players like what I do but their system is top of the line,” continued Banes. “One of their students is Tayshaun Prince of the Detroit Pistons. The trainers remember the Philippine team fondly and asked me to say hi to Asi (Taulava) and Mark (Caguioa).”

Banes said in Boston, he brought up the possibility of engaging Eastman to bring his training camp to Manila. They met for an hour after the Celtics hosted the Los Angeles Lakers last Nov. 23.

“Coach Kevin was very much interested and I offered to organize a camp in Manila without the usual politics involved,” said Banes. Before returning home, Banes said he was invited to join the Athletes Performance two-month internship program in March to include free housing and discounted food.

“I’m definitely going back,” said Banes. “I know I must learn more and be up-to-date with modern and state-of-the-art methods of teaching basketball by going on my own and paying my way to one of the best training facilities in the US.”

For his trip last year, Banes dug deep into his pockets and spent about $4,000 to pay for his training fee, hotel, airfare, equipment and books. He’ll probably spend as much for his trip in March. But if that’s what it takes to make him a better teacher, Banes is prepared to pay the price – for the game he loves.

Banes may be contacted at 0917-3745007 or 802-1168.

Likewise, the Bai Cristobal Summer Basketball Camp is the only one of its kind which follows up the progress of its trainees by holding a mini basketball tournament from among the participants. Furthermore, the camp is the only one which is privileged to participate, from among its trainees, to the Bohol Schools Amateur Athletic Association (BSAAA).

Aside from the former Philippine Basketball Association superstar (PBA) a bunch of equally qualified local coaches and trainees who are known to have their hearts to the endeavor, as follows, Lawi Galinato, a former UV Green Lancer and now a commercial coach; Tatang Legitimas, former BIT Super Cruiser and now coach of the BIT IC Super Cruisers; Many time MVP, Gerwin Cabalit, a former UB Baby Lemur and now a BAP referee; Gary Cabalit, a former standout of many local tournaments and* now BAP referee; Rustico Pitao, a former UB Flying Lemur and now coach of the BIT Jr Cruiser; and Abe Galinato, a standout of the National Basketball Conference (NBC).

The registration fee is pegged at P1,200 only with free T-shirts and balls.

PSA elevates BEST Center to Hall of Fame*

FOR being at the forefront of basketball development for the past three decades, the* Basketball Efficiency Scientific Training (BEST) Program will be elevated to the Hall of Fame by the Philippine Sportswriters Association during the San Miguel Corporation-PSA (SMC-PSA) Awards Night tomorrow at the SM Mall of Asia.
* *
Nic Jorge formed the BEST Program on March 30, 1978 after a month-long training in Rome, Italy, where he was joined by 10 coaches from Asia under the auspices of the Olympic Solidarity Program.
* *
“We teach the fundamentals, lahat ng klaseng fundamentals ng basketball — that’s our philosophy, dahil sabi nila, basketball is just a series of fundamentals,” said Nic, who was inspired to bring the concept of basketball clinics to the Philippines as budding players at that time had no formal training in the sport.
* *
The Jorge siblings Nicky, Monica and Veronica were the first lecturers of the first-ever BEST Clinics, attended by 25 kids. As more enthusiasts came in, Jorge’s desire to improve the quality of classes became notable.
* *
Kids, who went to the BEST clinics got to test* their newfound skills in the Small Basketeers Philippines program (for 9 to 12 year old participants) and the Passarelle competitions (12 to 14 years old).
* *
Jorge’s formation of the SBP and Passarelle programs – and later on the Women’s Basketball League — helped the BEST cli-nics expand its classes at a nationwide level.
* *
“For 30 years, the BEST Center has tirelessly taught Filipino kids how to properly play the game closest to our hearts and it is just fitting that we elevate Mr. Jorge’s program to the PSA Hall of Fame,” said PSA President Aldrin Cardona, who also announced that awardees who failed to receive their invitations can get it at the reception area of the SM Mall of Asia during the awards day itself.
* *
The two-hour awards ceremonies will start at 5:30 pm., to be broadcast by media partners ABC5 and DZSR Sports Radio 918, and supported by Shakey’s, PSC, Philippine Amusements and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), Accel, Toby’s, Raymundo’s Trophies and Sculptures (www.raymundosawards.com), Tagaytay City mayor Bambol Tolentino, Air21, Noosa Shoes and Raymund Yu and Terry Que of Welcoat Paints.
* *
Sports officials attending the glitzy affair are Senate President Manny Villar, who will be the guest speaker, Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) president Jose ‘Peping’ Cojuangco, Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) chairman William ‘Butch’ Ramirez, Games and Amusements Board Chairman Eric Buhain, among others.
* *
International Boxing Federation-International Boxing Organization flyweight champion Nonito Donaire and 24th Southeast Asian Games Best Male Athlete awardee Miguel Molina will be sharing the Athlete of the Year tiara, while Pacquiao, a four-time recipient of the PSA Athlete of the Year, is the recipient of the PSA President’s Award.

Ask Coach E: Time of the season (http://www.businessmirror.com.ph/02272008/sports06.html)
www.businessmirror.com.ph

Who would believe that it has been two years, as the next edition of the Nike Elite Camp happens again next month?

I would have to admit that there is some measure of excitement mounting again, as preparations are being done anew by camp director Alex Compton, who ensured that the six-day event would run smoothly as it always has.

This excitement comes from the prospect of seeing new faces in the person of high-school players who have what it takes to become the stars of Philippine basketball a few years from now.

It is not too early to talk about this, of course, as the turnover of basketball stars is really fast in the Philippine landscape.

The stars of today may ride into the sunset a few years from now with another talented batch of players eager to take their place. Change is a sure thing in the small, competitive world of basketball.

The Nike Elite Camp, as always, has the objective of smoothing out these basketball gems into the diamonds of tomorrow.

So how do we actually do that? It’s with a complete camp. It will feature skills-development drills, a variety of workshops and character-building sessions to prepare the players for the game of life.

First, there’s the teaching of fundamentals and fine-tuning of basic skills with the help of the country’s top coaches and basketball players. One of the players who helped us out with this was former National Basketball Association cager David Wood, who has been a regular in the last two stagings of the event.

Other who served as mentors are Tony Boy Espinosa, Dennis Madrid, B J Manalo, Ralph Rivera, Rob Johnson, Daniel Booker and Josh Manthe, while coaches who were invited to speak at the camp include Tim Cone, Norman Black and Kirk Collier.

Second, there’s the emphasis on values formation. This is actually the most important thing. While rigid tryouts take care of screening worthy campers, there’s no assurance that these cagers are up to the task of improving their basketball careers or taking care of the success that springs forth from it.

The importance of hard work, discipline and integrity in leading toward success is also covered by the camp.

The best thing about it is that the 80 campers enjoy all of these without a single expense on their part.

With the help of sponsors, led by Nike, the International Basketball Academy (IBA) event will be completely free for its participants, with transportation, food, lodging, uniforms, bags, shoes and many more items all provided for.

We’re proud to announce that some of the top campers in the past include Mike Gamboa (UP), Kirk Long (Ateneo), Joshua Webb (La Salle Zobel), Nico Salva and LA* Revilla (San Beda College), as well as RP youth players Joel Tolentino and Joseph Marata (UP), Philip Paredes (Sacred Heart Cagayan de Oro), and Jeric Teng (Xavier), to name a few.

Buoyed by these names who are dotting the Philippine basketball landscape, the IBA will again hold the Nike Elite Basketball Camp from March 14 to 19 at the Brent International School in Mamplasan, Laguna.

This year we are culling the 80 campers from all areas in the country, including Laoag, Pampanga, the National Capital Region, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cebu, Davao, Zamboanga and Cagayan de Oro.

To show off the camp’s products, two televised all-star games will showcase the best players from the two different age groups (14-15 and 16-17).

Both games will be broadcast on Basketball TV (BTV) on April 7 and 8, both scheduled from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

We enjoin everyone to watch these games on television. Who knows, we might find familiar faces who will be in the top leagues or the international arena a few years from now.

Abandon 1-on-1, play as a team – Shin



By FRANCIS SANTIAGO
mb.com.ph

Shin Dong Pa, the former Korean hotshot whose legend continues to fascinate similarly retired Filipino basketball officials and players, has a piece of advice to those wishing to reclaim Philippine glory in Asian basketball: Abandon one-on-one and play as a team.


"In my humble opinion, Filipinos are the best in Asia because of their passion for the game. But they should not focus on one-on-one plays. Basketball is a team effort," Shin said speaking through an interpreter.

"Filipinos are very good in one-on-one plays and in dribbling but they cannot win games with that."

Shin is in town for a three-day basketball clinic that began last Thursday. He was chosen by the Samahang Basketball ng Pilipinas on the strength of his record as nemesis of Philippine teams during the country’s glorious years as an Asian contender.

Shin scored 50 points to beat the Philippines in one Asian Championship held in Thailand in 1969, adding another chapter to his legend.

He is saddened that Philippine basketball is not what it used to be. He blames bad techniques, wrong program and too much NBA-style basketball.

"They (Filipinos) should learn how to shoot the ball first before dribbling," Shin said.

To improve their shooting, Shin advised that kids and even college players must shoot the ball 300 times a day.

Believing Filipinos have the potential to dominate the Asian region again, Shin encourage budding stars to embrace the true essence of sport which is team play.

He also asked the Filipinos to make their own moves and avoid copying the moves of some NBA players.

"We should not imitate NBA players because they focus much on individual plays," said Shin, who graced yesterday’s SCOOP sa Kamayan session on Padre Faura where he met for the first time his chief rival – William "Bogs" Adornado.

Aside from Adornado, others who graced the weekly forum were Philip Cezar and Atoy Co, who recalled their fierce rivalry with the Koreans before.

"I’m happy to be back in the Philippines. This is my second home. A home away from home," the 64-year-old Shin said.

"I’m back here again because I feel loved by the Filipinos. And people here are very good basketball players," added Shin, who mentioned the names of Robert Jaworski, Francis Arnaiz, Freddie Webb and Danny Florencio as the stars of the RP team that beat them during the 1973 ABC which was held at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

Shin arrived in the country with his long-time backcourt partner and Olympian Yoo Hee Hyung last Wednesday, shared his philosophy and bared tips on how to shoot the ball well before 120 coaches that came from different parts of the country.

The clinic will be reinforced by PBA coaches Tim Cone, Ryan Gregorio, Yeng Guiao and Derick Pumaren in the coming days.

The final day of the clinic will be held starting 1 p.m. today.

MULTI-TITLED Ateneo de Davao High School and now-Chicago based high school coach Ronel Leuterio will be back in Davao City for a free two-day BAP Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas seminar for coaches that will focus on his nearly perfected brand of play called the "Spread Offense."

The "Spread Offense" is a result of a three-year work of Leuterio who attended numerous seminars under US college coaches.

The seminar is on April 10 to 11 tentatively at the Barangay 5-A Bankerohan gym because the Davao City Recreation Center will not be available on the said dates.

Leuterio, who was assistant coach also of the Professional Davao Eagles in the MBA and best remembered for mentoring the Ateneo de Davao High School team that won the Milo Best national title in Cebu, said that the seminar is open to all coaches in Davao.

"It is an offense that is out of the box, something unconventional. The positions are different or at least they are viewed in a different way," Leuterio said in an email from Chicago.

He said basketball is usually thought of in terms of point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, and center.

THE Coach Eric Altamirano's Hoop Club will hold a basketball clinic for boys and girls ages five to 18 years old on April 21 to May 1 at the Montaña Gym in Davao City.

National Basketball Training Center (NBTC) Davao territory head lawyer Manny Nitorreda bared this during the Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at the Tower Inn on Thursday.

He said: "Coach Eric is the most sought-after coach for basketball clinics in Metro Manila and in other parts of Luzon. He will come to supervise the clinic. He will be assisted by local coaches."

He said these coaches are Ateneo de Davao University's Cholo Elegino, Miguel Solitaria and Caloy Salvador, University of Mindanao's Rhoel Josol, Roderick Conda and Augusto Banzali and Jose Maria College's Dindo Pastor.

"A coach will be assigned to 10 students in every session. The clinic will have 10 sessions with two hours every session. Registration fee is P3,000 inclusive of shirt," he added.

The former PBA coach Altamirano, according to him, is arriving on April 19 for the clinic.

Registration is ongoing at Nitorreda's law office at the second floor of Merco Restaurant, corner Bolton and Rizal streets.

Nitorreda, meanwhile, announced that NBTC Davao training of 40 selected cagers is ongoing and will end in May. The training program, with Altamirano as project director, was launched in Davao in January.

"We had a few dropouts and we replaced them with younger players who range from 13 to 15 years old since it is the aim of NBTC to produce future national team players," he said.

Entry fee is reasonably pegged at P1,000 inclusive of a basketball and training uniform. For registration and other inquiries, one may call/text 0916-5644385 or 0916-4534639.

To ensure quality training, Salvaña, who steered Holcim Pryce Pharma MisOr to a grandslam feat in the Mindanao Division of the Mindanao Visayas Basketball Association (MVBA), has hired the services of topnotch coaches who are former cage stars during their prime to assist him in running the camp.

They are Reggie Licanda, the current head coach of the University of Cebu (UC) Junior Webmasters, Opel Abellana, presently the chief bench tactician of the University of San Carlos (USC)-South Campus, and former pro star Teroy Albarillo, who also had several coaching* stints in the commercial circuit.

“Our main goal here is to provide quality training to our students. We’ve been doing this (clinic) for 10 years now and it’s very gratifying to note that we’re getting bigger and better each year,” said Salvaña. “The fact that more kids are partonizing our clinic already speaks for what kind of training we are offering.”

A FREE basketball-coaching clinic will be handled by former Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) high school coach and now Chicago-based Ronel Leuterio on Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

No definite venue has been named yet but Almendras Gym and Bankerohan Gym are being considered.

Leuterio said the two-day clinic would give a new perception on how basketball is being played.

"We're offering something different. We often talk about the European style, Korean style, or NBA style of coaching. It's about time we showcase the Filipino talent," Leuterio told sportswriters in press briefing at the Dencia's Restaurant Sunday evening.

Leuterio said he would introduce the "Spread Offense" which he learned through all the US college coaches-led seminars he attended in the past three years.

"It is an offense that is out of the box, something unconventional. The positions are different or at least they are viewed in a different way," he earlier said in an email.

"I guarantee that participants will enjoy what they'll do and learn from this clinic. I hope basketball coaches, players and enthusiasts will come and join us," Leuterio said.

The clinic is an undertaking of BAP-SBP regional director Regino "Boy" Cua in coordination with the Sports Development Division-City Mayor's Office headed by city sports coordinator Christopher "Bong" Go. (MLSA)

RP Junior NBA All-Stars off to US (http://philstar.com/index.php?Sports&p=49&type=2&sec=30&aid=2008040791)
SPORTING CHANCE By Joaquin M. Henson

Five Filipino teenagers leave for a four-day trip to the US on Thursday as their prize for emerging the most outstanding players at the first Junior NBA camp held at the Ateneo gym here last year.

NBA Asia senior manager for markets Carlo Singson said the other day the first batch of Filipino Junior NBA All-Stars will join an exclusive Golden State Warriors camp for about 60 kids in the 11-17 age bracket at the Oracle Arena in Oakland during their stay. The highlight of the trip is watching the Warriors play the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.

The five players are 6-2 Nico Montelibano of La Salle Greenhills, 6-2 Aljon Mariano of San Beda, 6-1 Erlance Feliciano of San Beda, 6-2 Al Bugarin of Ateneo and 6-foot Rafael Banal of Ateneo. A sixth player, Kiefer Ravena, begged off from the trip because of summer classes. Ravena, however, was given a round-trip ticket to the US by the NBA as his prize.

Each player chose a traveling companion whose ticket was also provided by the NBA. Montelibano, Bugarin and Mariano are bringing their mothers while Banal is taking his brother and Feliciano, his father.

Banal’s father Joel is a former PBA player and currently, Alaska assistant coach.

Singson, who will accompany the All-Stars, said the Junior NBA camp falls under the “NBA Cares” program and was conceptualized to develop skills on the court and imbibe the STAR values of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Attitude and Respect. He called the five Filipino All-Stars-all 15 years old – as ambassadors of goodwill, on and off the court.

With Ateneo coach and former Detroit Piston Norman Black as director, the Junior NBA camp was introduced in 16 Metro Manila private and public schools last April. The next month, the 16 schools participated in an NBA-sponsored tournament with Ateneo winning the championship. Last June, the Eagles champion team players and at least three All-Stars from the other 15 schools attended a Junior NBA camp for 56 kids with Frank Lopez, who conducts similar clinics for the Orlando Magic and Dallas Mavericks, flying in to assist Black in teaching pro-style drills at the Ateneo gym. The top six players were then chosen from the 56 to win round-trip tickets to the US.

The five All-Stars will be given a chance to meet their favorite players, said Singson. Montelibano said he’s looking forward to meet Chris Kaman with Bugarin choosing Al Harrington, Banal picking Monta Ellis, Feliciano selecting Stephen Jackson and Mariano naming Baron Davis.

Bugarin said if he’s asked by other campers in the US to describe what makes Philippine basketball unique, he’ll talk about how passionate Filipino fans are. “Filipinos love the game,” he said. “Just look at the fan support for Ginebra in the PBA and Ateneo and La Salle in the UAAP. I’ll tell them how passionate we are about basketball.”

This August, Singson said the country’s second Junior NBA program will reach out to 200 schools. Lopez will again plane in to assist Black with possibly an NBA player or legend. A camp for the coaches from the 200 schools will initially be held. Then the coaches will select 40 players to join four regional camps in Metro Manila, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. The top 12 players from each regional camp will move on to converge in a three-day national camp where five to as many as 10 All-Stars will win round-trip tickets to the US to watch an NBA game.

Junior NBA programs were also launched in China and Japan last year. The Chinese All-Stars were sent to watch the recent All-Star Game in New Orleans while the Japanese All-Stars flew to witness a New Jersey Nets contest last January.

Singson said he hopes to introduce Golden State assistant coach Keith Smart, who once played as an import for San Miguel under Black in the PBA, to the Filipino All-Stars.

^ I watched the replay in BTv kahapon. Keith Agovida, Kevin Alas and Ryan Monteclaro (me halong bias ;D) were the most impressive. Both Agovida and Alas will see action in NCAA juniors this season. As to Ryan I hope someone gets him in UAAP or NCAA, Team B or kahit 3rd or 4th string PG. He shot well 3/4 from 3pt line, scored in double figure, did a lot of penetration and posted at least 8 assists (hindi ko na napanoud yong last 5 minutes).

Konti lang yong prospects. I was expecting several names out there pero hindi kasama.

Other notable prospects were Clark Bautista, Tiongson, Fran and Reyes of La Salle Greenhills. Bautista is a streak shooter. He made his first two 3pt shots then missed the next 4 or 5 shots. Tiongson is as good as advertised. Good ball handling skills, improved perimeter shot and good court vision. Fran was huge ( literally ) although he was a bit slow but he hassles a lot and fights for the ball. Improving his defensive positioning is a must. Reyes is a good point guard prospect. He vs Tiongson was fun to watch.

Ryan Monteclaro displayed spectacular skills during the camp. He will surely be the staring point guard for the San Beda Red Cubs this coming season.

Keith Agovida reminds me of Rey Evangelista (UST) and Eddie Laure (ADAMSON). Similar built and shooting hands.

Ronnie Magsanoc and Purefoods conditioning coach Patrick Esmundo have an ongoing clinic at Adidas Sportskamp at The Fort. It's held Mondays, Wednesdyas, and Saturdays, from 5-7pm. This present module is already halfway done, but the 2nd module will be in the 2nd half of April.

It's a very good camp. though the skill level of the campers is not as good as that of Coach E's camp. This will be very good for players who are still developing their skills.

More than 3,000 kids aged five and up earned the prestige of being called Best graduates at the end of the month when the Basketball Efficiency and Scientific Training (Best) honors its latest batch coming from various Best clinics nationwide at the end of the month.
* *
The Best graduates thus joined revered names in professional basketball like James Yap, Paolo Mendoza, LA Tenorio, Joseph Yeo, Magnum Membrere, Enrico Villanueva, Chester Tolomia, Jeck Chia, and TY Tang, among many other cage stars, when they set out to play in summer and school leagues after learning basic and advanced rudiments of the sport though the scientific approach formulated by former national coach and Best Center founder Nic Jorge.
* *
Some of these kids proved their skills recently when they placed* runner-up to the Las Vegas Elite, a team comprised of taller and more* experienced players, in the recent Swoosh Basketball Championship held in Nevada.
* *
The Philippine-Best squad actually had the chance to win the championship if not for an accidental foul in the dying seconds that allowed the American boys to forge an extension following a 67-all deadlock at the end of the regulation period.
* *
The Filipino Best boys even gave their American rivals a big scare in overtime before the more experienced Las Vegas Elite squad prevailed, 76-73, to claim the crown presented* by the Youth Basketball of America, which is a leading member of USA Basketball.
* *
Comprising the RP-Best team are: Candido Verzosa, CJ Sumulong, Calvin Buan, Dave Moralde, Lorenz Sia, Onelle Balinton, Mark Monterubio, Angelo Malapitan, Nap Miranda III, Redmond Zapanta, Yvan Barranco, Karl Buenviaje, Renchi Cabizzo, Gerome Monteiro, Louie Vives; Marvin Galang, Nicolo Mercado, Josiah Chua, Ralph Omampo, Nicolo Estrada, Jorel Garcia, Daniel Lumahan, Angelo Fabian, Ignacio Lobregat, Isiah Chua, Kiefer Lim and Joshua McDaniel General.
* *
“It was a tough game and our boys really did well, considering they are facing an experienced American squad. They used what they learned in our clinics and it proved Filipino kids are not lagging in basketball talent, especially if given scientific training at an early age.”

Training for upcoming basketball players on
By Roderick Osis
www.sunstar.com.ph

FOR five years now, two of Baguio City's basketball enthusiasts have gathered their resources to train possible basketball players not only to learn the basics but also to attain their dream of playing in the pro-league someday.

Since it started in 2003, HoopEdge is making the dreams of every young Baguio resident of making it big either in amateur leagues in the city or represent their school in tournaments outside Baguio despite the lack of support from the local government.

"We don't just teach basic basketball here but we also teach them the real essence of the game," said Anton Gomez, who helped in realizing a grass-root training for basketball in the city with former college ball player and former coach of the Pines City College men's varsity team Eric Balagot.

HoopEdge, through the five years of its existence, has already lured more than 80 participants ranging from elementary and high school hoop wannabes during its summer camp since 2003, and the number is yet to grow as they are expect more players will enroll within the next few years.

Although the training is not free of charge, Gomez said they are collecting fees for the payment of gym rental which they sometimes shoulder themselves because of the lack of enrollees.

"Every summer, we have our closed-door summer camp for elementary and high school students who want to learn and improve their craft as aspiring basketball players," Gomez said.

With six of its trainees graduating from high school last March, Gomez is looking for other enrollees in their program.

Gomez quipped that the five are trying out for the basketball team in their respective schools while the other one was already in the US.

PJ dela Cruz is currently a freshman at the Saint Louis University who is also trying out for the basketball team while Jonathan Pineda is a sophomore at the University of Baguio together with Alex Ciensia. Jonathan Yong and Nico Yagyagen are both enrolled at the University of the Cordilleras, and Gomez said these kids have great chances of landing either in the school varsity or as department players.

With their program coming to progress, a number of their high school trainees recently saw action in some of the city's amateur league which includes the annual Friendship Cup, Adidas Street ball challenge, and the recently concluded Panagbenga Cup.

Although the team did not fair good in some of the tournament they joined, HoopEdge is hoping their trainees would be molded in the way Gomez and Balagot would want them to progress in their basketball careers.

"Our aim is for these kids to elevate their game during tournaments and have the maturity they need as they go along with our program," Balagot said.

Every week, the group conducts a basketball drill for elementary pupils from 2 to 4 p.m. at the St. Vincent Gym every Saturday and basketball skirmish from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the afternoon during Sundays also at the St. Vincent Gym.

For inquires about HoopEdge and their training regiments, Coach Balagot can be contacted at 0906-4936866 while Gomez can be reached through 0921-5687855.

SBP targets N. America training centers
By June Navarro
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 03:57:00 09/16/2008

MANILA, Philippines—A basketball training center for foreigners with Filipino roots will soon rise in Las Vegas.

The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas is negotiating with Toronto Raptors executive Jim Kelly and Loy Allado so it can put up a training facility for US-based Filipinos wanting to play for the national team.

“Our target is to put up the training center early next year,” said SBP executive director Noli Eala. “There are a lot of player prospects in the US so we’re bringing the SBP program there.”

Eala said another training facility will be established in Toronto, Canada for North America-based Filipinos.

Eala said the training centers hope to lure more players with Philippine lineage to shoot for a chance to represent the country in international competitions.

“It’s cheaper and saves time since the SBP will no longer bring the players here,” added Eala.

The US-based Allado, father of Talk ‘N Text slotman Don Allado in the PBA, has offered to help put up the training center while Kelly, the Raptors’ director for player personnel, is busy exploring the possibility of running the SBP program in Las Vegas and Toronto.

Eala said the two overseas training facilities go hand in hand with the SBP plan to hire a Serbian coach to head the national team program.

The SBP is trying to clinch a deal with Rajko Toroman, who coached the Iranians to the 2007 FIBA-Asia Championship title in Tokushima, Japan and a return trip to the Olympics this year after 60 years.

Jr. NBA coach in Cebu
www.sunstar.com.ph

CEBU basketball players and coaches get a chance of a lifetime as Cebu was chosen as one of the recipients of a coaching seminar to be conducted by Junior National Basketball Association coach Frank Lopez on Nov. 12 at the City Sports Club Cebu courts.

Local organizer and bemedalled coach Elmer “Boy” Cabahug teamed up with the Department of Education for this endeavor.

Lopez has been a coach for 14 years with the NBA and the Junior NBA and is currently an assistant coach for the Orlando Magic.

The same training for players was done in Manila last year, but unlike Manila where only those from posh schools and universities were able to take part in, Cabahug said he wants coaches from public schools in Cebu to get the same chance.

“It is a grassroots program and these coaches will benefit from it. This is a good way for us to improve our young players,” said the eight-time winner of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc.

“It is also a very rare chance and since it is for free, they should join it,” said Cabahug.

Cabahug added that he is inviting even those coaches from neighboring provinces to take part in this event.

Limited slots

He, however, wants applications sent as soon as possible because they are only limiting the slots to 100.

The training will be done the whole day with the afternoon set aside for basketball drills.

Lopez will also be doing an NBA promotional run at the SM North Wing on Nov. 22 and 23, where he will also be teaching kids.

After the NBA clinic, Cabahug, other PBA legends and some coaches from the training will hold a clinic on Dec. 27 to 28 12 to 14 years old. They will choose 20 kids, who will be sent to another Jr. NBA training in Manila, where six will be chosen to go to the US on an NBA-sponsored trip.

In the US, the selected kids will be trained and observe NBA teams in training and watch NBA games live. (MCB)

Jr. NBA camp for coaches kicks off today
www.sunstar.com.ph

THE Junior National Basketball Association program comes back to the Philippines for the second straight year and will kick off with a daylong coaches training at the City Sports Club Cebu today.

The event will be hosted by the Jr. NBA US-based head coach Frank Lopez.

University of the Visayas head coach Boy Cabahug, the local point person for the event, said that they are expecting at least 100 coaches from all over the Visayas to attend today’s seminar.

“Coaches will be taught the basics, how to handle a team, how to conduct the training of the young players and how to go about the drills,” Cabahug said.

This coaches’ training is the first of the three-part program, which will culminate with the Jr. NBA National Training Camp from Feb. 27 to March 1 in Manila.

After Cebu, the clinic will shift to Manila on Nov. 15 to 16.

The Local coaches will take what they have learned and conduct their own Jr. NBA program within their schools.

Those kids, who could not attend in any of the participating schools, will have an opportunity to attend an open clinic, to be conducted by Jr. NBA-appointed coaches on Nov. 22 to 23 in Cebu, and Nov. 29 to 30 in Manila.

The local coaches will nominate the deserving student-athletes to the Regional Training Camps scheduled on Dec. 27 to 28 in Cebu, and on Jan. 24 to 25, 2009 in Manila.

A total of 200 campers will be participating in the camps in Manila and Cebu, and the Top 20 from each camp will be invited to attend the Jr. NBA National Training Camp in Metro Manila.

The top 40 young players from around the country will get a chance to participate in the three-day camp on Feb. 27 to March 1.

The six campers, who exhibit superior basketball ability and best embody the values of the program will be named to the Jr. NBA Philippine Team.

They will receive a once-in-a-lifetime trip to watch an NBA game live during the 2008-09 season, and will compete against a Jr. NBA team from the United States. (PR)

‘Phenomenal passion’
By Marian C. Baring
www.sunstar.com.ph

COACHING is not about winning, but about developing players.

This was the message that Junior National Basketball Association coach Frank Lopez wanted to impart on the coaches who attended the coaches seminar yesterday at the City Sports Club Cebu.

Yesterday, coaches from all over Cebu attended the seminar conducted by Lopez, who has served as a Jr. NBA head coach for four years. The geography teacher also coached high school varsity before becoming an assistant coach for Orlando Magic of the NBA.

“The lessons that we want to teach the kids is to have the Star values—sportsmanship, teamwork, attitude, and respect –which are important for everyone to have not just for basketball but also in life,” he said.

Lopez admitted he was moved by the passion that Filipinos have for basketball.

“Whenever I go around and I see in corners kids without shoes playing under the heat of the sun in a makeshift basketball court, I can’t help but turn my head and watch them. We don’t see that in the US. It is just phenomenal,” said Lopez.

The first step of the Jr. NBA program is the coaches’ clinic. Some select coaches who attended Lopez’ seminar will then assist him in the Open Clinic on Nov. 22 to 23 at SM City Cebu.

Lopez also believes that Filipino cagers stand a good chance of making it big internationally.

“It is not about the size, but the heart. It takes more than height to be good in basketball. Kids need to understand that it needs passion, enthusiasm and hard work to excel in the sport. And Filipinos possess that,” he added.

Starting small

“I have seen Iranians in the NBA draft. It doesn’t matter if they get drafted or not, the fact that they reached that level is good enough. And I say it could happen to Filipinos as well, it has to start somewhere and that is here,” he said.

Meanwhile, Cebu City Councilor Jack Jakosalem, who attended the early part of the training said he wanted to take advantage of the clinic to promote a stronger grassroots program in the barangays.

“This will be a good program to bring to the barangays. I will be talking to the coaches about this endeavor,” he said.

The coaches in the clinic are expected to share what they learned with their players in their own Jr. NBA program in their schools.

Those players, who also want to take part in the said program, will get a chance in the Open Clinic.

The local coaches will then nominate deserving student-athletes to the Regional Training Camps on Dec. 27 and 28. From the expected 200 campers from Cebu and Manila, 20 from each region will be invited to the national training camp next year and of the 40, only six will be selected to form the Philippine Jr NBA team which will see action in the US.

GREETINGS from Cebu! Am here in this basketball-crazy city for the Jr. NBA, which has taken this town by storm.

The National Basketball Association’s (NBA) grassroots development program has come to this southern capital for the first time, and only on the second consecutive year of the Jr. NBA in the Philippines. Just goes to show the respect that the NBA has for Filipinos when it comes to basketball savvy and fanaticism, and the recognition of Cebu as a place that throbs and beats for the love of the game.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes. It seems that everywhere I went there were kids playing basketball! There’s so much passion for the sport. So much heart!” That’s what Jr. NBA coach Frank Lopez—the Jr. NBA’s respected coach-clinician—said many times over to different people in Cebu.

“Coach Frank” was so taken by the sight of leagues and backyard basketball happening in different venues all at the same time as we rode around Cebu City, to guest on three different Cebu radio stations—Monster Radio BT 105.9, Cebu Y101 and Killerbee dyBN FM—to tell Cebuanos about the Jr. NBA.

In fact, Coach Frank said those two things are the most important factors when it comes to basketball—not just height. “There are players shorter than I am, like Spud Webb and Mugsy Bogues, who have succeeded in the NBA. It had nothing to do with height. It was all heart!”

YESTERDAY, about 70 local coaches registered for the program—conducted free by the NBA to grow the gospel of basketball among grade-school and early high-school students in the Philippines and other countries like Japan, China and, of course, the United States. And many more wished they could have joined it, had they not been busy with other commitments.

The program this year has been expanded from last year’s player-centered format. The coaches’ clinic speaks directly to the discoverers and molders of young minds and bodies, aiming to help develop them not just as athletes but as total persons with all-around skills. The Jr. NBA Program presented by Hi-Smart aims to identify and develop outstanding basketball talents—boys and girls—who are both athletically and academically smart.

Participating coaches get an NBA Coach’s Guide, a Player’s Guide, a Parent’s Guide, posters, flyers, NBA notebooks, pens, a Jr. NBA sling bag, nomination forms for their best students or players and an NBA certificate of attendance—all for free!

After Cebu, Manila coaches will benefit next. Saturday and Sunday (November 15 and 16), Coach Frank will again conduct the free NBA clinics for Manila coaches at the Jose Rizal University Gym on Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong. Walk-ins are welcome. Coaches of public or private schools or youth barangay leagues are invited to participate.

THE program will also open to the public when the Jr. NBA Open Clinics are held in Cebu and Manila (a Cebu mall and SM Marikina in Manila). Girls and boys of all ages—including Mom and Dad—are invited to participate.* Basketball games and mini-clinics, including seminars on health and nutrition, will be the order of the day. The public can expect to see PBA ex-players and surprise celebrity guests getting into the act. Coaches Ronnie Magsanoc, Ryan Gregorio, Alvin Patrimonio, Benjie Paras, Jerry Codiñera, Joey Guanio, Jig Mendoza and Vergel Meneses will be there to help the kids and their parents fall in love more deeply with the NBA and the game of basketball.

The Jr. NBA Program 2008 goes on all the way to March 2009. After the Open Clinics, the next phase will be the Regional Selection Camps in December (Cebu) and January (Manila) where deserving student-athletes nominated by their coaches will undergo intense training and screening. The top 20 players from the regionals will then participate in the three-day Jr. NBA National Training Camp, which will be held in Manila from February 27 to March 1, 2009.

Among the 40 national campers, the six best will be chosen to get the sweet prize: a trip to the US, with tours and NBA game-watching in the agenda, as well as games to be played with a Jr. NBA team from the US.

I’M very impressed with Coach Frank. He’s a great speaker, and he’s got all these wonderful tips and insights. Imagine—he’s a coach of both men and women, he’s a referee, he’s a teacher (teaches geography and US history) and a great motivator. I’m sure Filipino coaches have learned a lot from him, and will learn more as the Jr. NBA Program unfolds,” says Jolly Escobar.

“This is a great opportunity for us Filipino coaches to be working with an NBA coach and learning all of these things,” says Elmer “Boy” Cabahug, whose son Elmer Michael, 17, has followed his father’s footsteps and is a sweet- shooting 6’2” off guard for the UV Lancers here, the team that Coach Frank practiced with to show the basketball drills to the coaches.

“The kids are the future of basketball,” added the former Alaska, Purefoods and Sta. Lucia stalwart. “This program will teach us how to develop them in the proper way.”

OVERTIME. Congratulations to barangay Pinagbuhatan, Pasig, for winning the first Mayor Bobby Eusebio Cup on November 8. Kudos to team manager Diony Balagbagan, coach Duane Salvatera, Andy Poblete and San Beda/Yco-Tanduay die-hard Archie Ventosa for helping the team in a big way. Way to go!

Local PBA greats in Jr. NBA clinics
www.journal.com.ph

PHILIPPINE Basketball Association (PBA) coaches and legends led by Ronnie Magsanoc join coach Frank Lopez in conducting the Jr. NBA coaches clinic in Manila which tips off today at the Jose Rizal University (JRU) Gym in Mandaluyong City.

Magsanoc, voted one of the 25 PBA greatest players and assistant coach of the Purefoods Giants, heads the local coaches’ team composed of PBA and PBL mentors Benjie Paras, Alvin Patrimonio, Jerry Codiera, Ryan Gregorio, Jolly Escobar, Joey Guanio, Jig Mendoza, Vergel Meneses and Carlo Tan.

This marks the second consecutive Jr. NBA program in the Philippines after the inaugural clinic was held in Manila last year from April to June 2007.

The first Jr. NBA involved 16 Metro Manila public and private schools while the 2008 edition has targeted 200 schools across the country, reaching approximately 20,000 students, parents, and coaches.

It will run from November 12 to March 1, 2009.

As in Manila, the Jr. NBA Philippines 2008 tip off presented by Hi-Smart involved Cebu-based ex-PBA legends led by Elmer Cabahug, Al Solis, Rudy Enterina and Larry Villanil in the coaches clinic.

Junior NBA camp opens today
Saturday, December 27, 2008

AFTER several postponements, the Junior National Basketball Association program finally hits Cebu to for a weekend of basketball starting today at the Sacred Hear School-Jesuit gym.

This weekend’s event, however, is not merely just a basketball game as it will serve as regional selection camp where coaches will give a few players a shot at making it to Team Philippines, which will be sent to the Junior NBA training camp in the US.

Last month, Jr. NBA coach Frank Lopez, an assistant coach for Orlando Magic, came to Cebu to conduct a coaches’ seminar.

The coaches were then tasked to train their respective players and the kids will be put to the test today.

From an expected 200 participants this weekend, only 20 will be chosen by the designated NBA coaches headed by multi-titled coach Elmer Cabahug of the University of the Visayas Green Lancers along with former PBA players Al Solis, Jollie Escobar and Benjie Paras, to advance to the Jr. NBA national training camp in Manila on Feb. 27.

Challenges

Today, campers will undergo shooting skills challenges, dribbling and passing drills, endurance tests, fitness and agility tests and will get to attend seminars on health and nutrition by Hi-Smart and the science of sweat, hydration and performance by Gatorade.

The camp starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m.

In the Manila leg, 20 Cebuanos will be pitting their basketball skills against those from Manila, which will have its own selection on Jan. 24 at the JRU Gym in Mandaluyong.

The RP team will not only be given a chance to fly to the US for free and train with NBA coaches and compete with another Jr. NBA team, but the players will also get a chance to watch an NBA game live.

The Jr. NBA Regional Selection Camp in Cebu will be followed by an open clinic from Jan. 10 to 11 at the Ayala Center Cebu. This will give the general public and kids of all ages a chance to take part in Jr. NBA activities and skills challenges for free. MCB

Saturday, December 27, 2008

THE Junior National Basketball Association took center stage yesterday, attracting about 200 participants, making it the biggest basketball camp compared to other countries under the Junior NBA program.

“The difference with this camp and that of others is that this became open to all that are interested, as long as they are 12 to 14 years old. The other camps are focused on just a few schools,” said Kalvin Sangalang, the PR for NBA Philippines during the first day of the camp yesterday at the Sacred Heart School Jesuit gym on Gen. Maxilom Ave.

This is the first time the Junior NBA program is staged outside the National Capital Region.

Reach

Junior NBA coach Elmer “Boy” Cabahug made sure that the clinic will reach a wide range of players.

“Players come from as far as Ormoc and we have some from neighboring cities like Danao. We want to make sure that our young players will be able to take advantage of this opportunity,” said Cabahug, who was one of those who facilitated the clinics alongside other coaches Jollie Escobar, Al Solis, and Mike Reyes.

Cabahug taught the kids the proper way of shooting, while Solis was tasked to teach ball handling. Reyes taught passing, while Escobar was assigned to teach defense.

“The good thing about opening it to a wider range of kids is we are able to see potential,” Cabahug said.

Selection

The coaches will be picking 20 players who stood out from yesterday’s clinic and another 20 from today. They will be slicing it down to the Top 20 this afternoon. These players will be sent to Manila, all-expenses paid and will have their skills tested against the Top 20 from Manila. From this group, only six will form the RP team that will be sent to the US to train and play with the US Junior NBA team. They will also be given a chance to watch NBA games live.

“We had an unexpected turnout. There were even parents who begged us to choose their kids, but unfortunately, we can’t just choose randomly because the selection is based on specific criteria,” Sangalang said.

Kids are tested based on their physical fitness, basketball skills and reach and there is a specific test for each kind.

“One kid got the attention of the coaches because at only 5-foot-6, he was able to jump 10 feet high,” Sangalang added.

Interested players may still catch up for the last day of the clinic today. (MCB)

Height, age don’t matter in Jr. NBA
Monday, December 29, 2008

A 12-YEAR-old boy, the youngest and shortest during the Junior National Basketball Association selection basketball camp, stood out among his towering competitors as he got the biggest nod from the coaches during the clinic’s final day yesterday at the Sacred Heart School Jesuit gym.

Standing just 4-foot-4, Mhike Spencer Patalinghug of Babag Elementary School of Lapu-Lapu City, outclassed the older and bigger hopefuls as he was on top of the Top 20 list for displaying “extraordinary talent” for a boy his age.

“In all the tests we gave, he scored almost perfect in all of them. I can see that he can be a good point guard in the future,” said coach Elmer “Boy” Caba-hug, one of the mentors who facilitated the two-day clinic.

Tests

The tests given were ball handling, passing, shooting, defense, obstacle and reach.

Meanwhile, most players making the cut are members of the Sacred Heart School Jesuit team that recently finished first runner-up in the national finals of the Milo Best basketball competitions.

They were Ray Daniel Abbu, Izak Kiefer Lim, Arc Gabriel Araw-Araw, Justin Jay Dela Cruz, Patrick Nigel Go, Jomari Jericho Dinsay, Kristoffer Porter and Adrian Muller.

Raul Dominic Antigua and Tecson Gacrama of the University of San Carlos (USC) team and Bradley Bacaltos of USC elementary team also made it to the Top 20.

Cebu Institute of Tech-nology’s (CIT) Mark Jayven Tallo and Don Bosco’s Jose Marlo Pono and Niko Nemenio, University of the Visayas’ (UV) Lucky Suan, Jomarie Gairanod of First Baptist Church, Noel Villaceran of Saint Alphonsus Catholic School, Wablymar Russel Del Rosario of University of Cebu (UC).

Exception

The only out-of-towner who made it to the Top 20 is Venezer Ian Bensig of New Ormoc City National High School.

These selected players will be sent to Manila in February for the national selection.

They will be pitting skills with the other hopefuls from the National Capital Region, where the number will be cut to six best players, who will be sent to the US to play the Junior NBA USA squad and to watch the NBA games live. MCB

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

TWENTY aspiring young cagers aged 12 to 14 showed superior athletic ability, stamina and basketball savvy to top the Regional Selection Camp of the 2008 Jr. NBA Philippines presented by Hi-Smart at the Sacred Heart School Gym here.

They will attend the Jr. NBA National Training Camp on Feb. 27 to March 1, 2009 in Manila.

Forty kids will join the national training camp and the remaining 20 spots will be selected at the Jr. NBA Regional Selection Camp scheduled for January 24 to 25 at the JRU Gym in Mandaluyong in Manila.

The kids from Cebu who will travel to Manila for the Jr. NBA National Training Camp include Ray Daniel Abbu, Iszak Kiefer Lim, Arc Gabriel Araw-Araw, Mark Jayven Tallo, Jomari Jericho Dinsay, Justin Jay Dela Cruz, Raul Dominic Antigua, Bradley Bacaltos, Jose Mario Pono, Lucky Suan, Patrick Nigel Go, Venezer Ian Bensig, Jomarie Gairanod, Nemenio Niko, Mhike Spencer Patalinghug, Noel Villaceran, Kristoffer Porter, Adrian Marvin Muller, Wablymar Del Rosario and Tecson Gacrama.

Skills

The 20 grade school and high school kids from Cebu and neighboring provinces topped the two-day camp that tested agility, leaping ability, speed, strength and all-around basketball playing skills.

One of the outstanding cagers, Mhike Patalinghug, was one of two who hailed from a public school and was the shortest at 4’4—proving that heart and skills, not height, is might in basketball.

Two hundred kids, handpicked by their coaches, participated in the NBA’s grassroots and basketball development program.
The first-ever Jr. NBA program held in Cebu aimed to identify the most promising total players in the region.

“The selection was made not only on how many points a young player could score, but more on how he could contribute to the game through his overall play,” said Jr. NBA coach Jolly Escobar.

“Scoring ability, rebounding, passing, dribbling, ball handling and defensive skills as well as the S.T.A.R. (Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Attitude, Respect) values were taken note of.”

PBA legends, now Jr. NBA coaches, Elmer Cabahug and Al Solis ran the camp alongside collegiate coach Mike Reyes and Escobar.

The top 40 Cebu and Manila young players will undergo more intensive training in the Jr. NBA National Training Camp.

Best players

The best six campers in the Jr. NBA National Training Camp will be proclaimed the Jr. NBA Philippines Team and will be rewarded with an all-expense paid trip to the US to watch an NBA game live and play against a counterpart US Jr. NBA Team.

“This has been the best camp we have ever attended,” said Joseph De la Cruz, father of Justin Jay Karl De La Cruz.

“I hope the Jr. NBA continues its mission to develop young individuals in Philippine basketball,” said Michael Patalinghug, parent of Mhike Patalinghug.

Support

Participation in the 2008 Jr. NBA Philippines presented by Hi-Smart is absolutely free in all its stages. It has reached out to over 200 schools across the country, reaching 20,000 students, parents, and coaches this year.

Two sets of coaches clinics, conducted in Cebu and Manila in November by US Jr. NBA coach Frank Lopez, involved local coaches in the intensive basketball training, skills development and grassroots talent identification of the NBA in the Visayas and the NCR.

Program

Jr. NBA, the leading youth basketball program in the United States is also in China, Japan, England, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Marianas Islands and involves players, coaches, parents and school officials.

Jr. NBA Philippines is presented by Hi-Smart. Associate partners of the program are Basketball TV, Caltex, Gatorade, and Spalding, with adidas as official outfitter and the Philippine Star as official media partner. (PR)

Hi everyone, I got an email from Fil-am coach Hernando Planells late December saying he wanted to give back to Filipinos and do clinics here. Coach H is the guy who trained guys for "Spiderman" and "Coach Carter". He also does scouting for Marty Blake, NBA Director for scouting. It is his wish to find Pinoy HS cagers who may want to give the US colleges a try.

If somebody can help organize this, maganda sana.

40 Pinoy youngsters enter Jr. NBA national training camp
01/28/2009 | 09:31 AM

MANILA, Philippines – A total of 40 players nationwide have qualified for the Jr. NBA National Training Camp, half of them coming from the regional leg held recently for youth in Metro Manila and in Luzon.

The other 20 came from Cebu. The whole batch will convene again in the national camp slated February 27 to March 1 at the Jose Rizal University Gym in Mandaluyong City.

The Metro Manila-Luzon leg dubbed the Jr. NBA Regional Selection Camp was held for two days in the recent weekend at the JRU Gym.

Jr. NBA coaches Jolly Escobar, Ronnie Magsanoc, Benjie Paras and Ryan Gregorio presided over the camp that welcomed 200 participants.

In the end, the players -- known only by their registration numbers -- were scored based on their physical and agility tests, their ratings in the Jr. NBA S.T.A.R. values of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, (Positive) Attitude and Respect, and their performances during the scrimmages.

"We were on the lookout for total players -- the entire package of basketball skills, values and positive attitude," Magsanoc said. "We were very impressed with the talent level. But the real battle begins on February 27, the start of the Jr. NBA National Training Camp, where they will find stiff competition from other players.

"The odds are going to be tougher -- forty players chasing six slots. Will they be able to handle the pressure? It's really going to be survival of the fittest."

From 40, the number will be trimmed down further to six who will make up the Jr. NBA Philippine Team. That squad will be rewarded with an all-expenses paid trip to the US to watch an NBA game live and play against a counterpart US Jr. NBA Team.

The 20 players from Luzon are: Carlo Escalambre, Dominic Domalanta, Emilio Puno, Roelandt John Gallardo, Mark Gamboa, Michael Jay Javelosa, Russell Fernandez, Reynald Magsalin, Carlos Nicolo Mercado, Gideon Ira Babilonia, Jose Gabriel Sumanguid, Joseph Bryan Operario, Dion Jackson, Les Paul Sanez, Shaquille Oswald Alanes, Thaddeus Dominique Ballada, Aldrin C. Fegidero, Neil Brian Ilarde, Jayson Angelo Nasayao, and Miguel Javier Palana.

Those who qualified from the Visayas are: Ray Daniel Abbu, Iszak Kiefer Lim, Arc Gabriel Araw-Araw, Mark Jayven Tallo, Jomari Jericho Dinsay, Justin Jay Dela Cruz, Raul Dominic Antigua, Bradley Bacaltos, Jose Mario Pono, Lucky Suan, Patrick Nigel Go, Venezer Ian Bensig, Jomarie Gairanod, Nemenio Niko, Mhike Spencer Patalinghug, Noel Villaceran, Kristoffer Porter, Adrian Marvin Muller, Wablymar Del Rosario and Tecson Gacrama.

The 2008 Jr. NBA Philippines presented by Hi-Smart has reached out to over 200 schools across the country, reaching an estimated 20,000 students, parents, and coaches in Manila and Cebu.

Two sets of Jr. NBA Coaches Clinics were conducted in Cebu and Manila in November by US Jr. NBA coach Frank Lopez and involved local coaches in the intensive basketball training, skills development and grassroots talent identification of the NBA in the Visayas and the NCR.

Jr. NBA, the leading youth basketball program in the United States is also being promoted China, Japan, England, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Marianas Islands and involves players, coaches, parents and school officials. – GMANews.TV

I believe Okubo was with UST team B but decided to reunite with Boris Aldeguer at Perpetual. Boris can form a competitive team if he can convince the old Zobel players to play for him in college if they are not going to get the opportunity at Taft.

Got this from BTV website--

... To learn more about the Elite Camp, IBAP and Basketball TV brings you a behind the scenes look at the U-16 National Team (April 27) and the 2009 Nike Elite Camp (May 4). The U-16 Show will give you an inside look at the current National Team and their training over the past few months. The National Team has been training under the NBTC- National Basketball Training Center. The Elite Camp is more of a recap of what commenced over the week they trained at Laguna. On top of these shows, Basketball TV will also show their All-Star Games. This year was a little different with the U-16 Team in the mix. Instead of having 2 games for the 2 age brackets, the U-16 National Team played against the 90-91 All-Stars, comprised of participants of the camp from the previous year. The other All-Star game showcases the best from this year’s edition of the camp. Catch the future of Philippine Basketball this month on Basketball TV.

I am just wondering how and who chooses who qualifies for the Nike Elite camp among players from the provinces.

In a handful of articles that I've read about this Elite camp, it suppose to bring together the best or the outstanding players from different cities and provinces/regions all over the country for a training camp. And this camp has been in existence for a couple or more years.

How come in Davao City, Mario Bonleon of Holy Child was never included in that Nike Elite Camp when in fact, he was an MVP more than a couple of times in the local leagues there and is a consistent dominant player in his age group? Just recently, he steered his team to win the FIBA33 championship in MOA and even played in the Pilipinas 3 on 3 team in the AYG in Singapore.

I am wondering if the process of choosing who are worthy to be included in the camp is based on objective judgment or a subjective one?

It is highly probable that there are players out there who are really better than the ones who get to join these highly touted national training camps but ,for "some reasons", were left out in the cold.
