I am so inspired to see young athletes, given that it's important for health and physical development, I am very much hoping to encourage my children to pursue their dreams to take up a hobby, perhaps only one sport or two - his and her best sports, whatever it is and continue train for it! Can't literally wait to root for my kids' passion...
I captured this photo for I truly applaud her parents; it simply shows encouragement and
support in things she enjoy doing - Basketball!
My only dream is for my children to confidently make ALL (everything in their best interest) their dreams come true!
This is Alaska Philippines' Objective - to encourage Youth Basketball participation in the country as they returned on it's 9th year!
Ever since, basketball deem to be a very rewarding sport, a common fantasy to most guys but I just realized that it's one of the least expensive sports whether you're a pro or just starting out. All we need is a hoop and ball to play plus a nice pair of rubber shoes!
Through the promotion of proper nutrition and an active lifestyle, Jr. NBA / Jr. WNBA presented by Alaska Philippines continues to be an effective platform in implementing Alaska Milk's NUTRITION. ACTION. CHAMPION. program that helps address the issue of overweight and undernourished children in the Philippines.
These young athletes should focus more on proper nutrition as it can enhance their performance! As they train hard, recover with proper and sufficient sleep, having an optimal hydration and dietary helps repair muscles and stay strong to their daily routine or intense work out.
The Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA program comprised of four stages:
Skills Clinic in schools and communities, Regional Selections Camps, National Training Camp and an NBA Experience Trip.
The planned clinics will run nationwide until April which will stop in Bukidnon, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Dagupan, Davao, Iloilo, Manila, Puerto Princesa, first time locations such as Batangas, Catanduanes and Cavite.
