The Philippines being a basketball-loving country has plenty of NBA fans, young or old, male or female. No wonder the NBA decided to return to the Philippines for the 7th consecutive Jr. NBA Schools' Clinic as well as the Coaches' Clinic now expanded to include a program specifically for girls, the Jr. WNBA program. The said program kicked off last January 18 in Manila along with the 2014 Search for Jr. NBA and WNBA Coach of the Year and now it is in Cebu.
The Regional Selection Camps will be be held in March and April, after which the top 50 boys and top 24 girls from all over the country will participate in the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA National Training Camp in Manila from April 25-27, 2014. The National Training Camp will culminate with the selection of 10 Jr. NBA and 4 Jr. WNBA All-Stars, providing these select campers with a unique NBA experience and the opportunity to play against a counterpart team from another country later in the year.
The Coach of the Year award winners will be announced at the National Training Camp, which will be attended by an NBA Legend and a WNBA Player/Legend, and feature NBA Cares community outreach.
The future of basketball in the country will be brighter with this Jr. NBA/WNBA program.
