Over a thousand aspiring champions joined the Jr.NBA/Jr.WNBA

Over a thousand aspiring champions joined the Jr.NBA/Jr.WNBA presented by Alaska school clinic in Sacred Heart School - Ateneo de Cebu last January 25, 2014, breaking the record of Davao City. These little champions have participants from private and public schools and some of them came from Bohol and Ormoc

The 7th Jr.NBA & Jr.WNBA presented by Alaska officially begins!

The Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) study revealed that obesity, which can lead to serious heart problems and diabetes at a young age is becoming one of the most prevalent nutritional problems of Filipino children and adults. To prevent increasing the risk of these diet-related diseases, it is imperative to have proper nutrition and an active lifestyle

Given these growing issues on health, Alaska continues their partnership with Jr. NBA 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

The 2014 Jr.NBA presented by Alaska, the international youth development program of the NBA, formally launched its seventh staging and their new program exclusively for girls, the Jr.WNBA last January 18, Saturday at the British School Manila, Bonifacio Global City

The launch was led by Alaska Milk President and CEO Fred Uytengsu, Alaska Milk VP for Marketing Blen Fernando, NBA Asia Country Manager Carlo Singson and NBA Head of Basketball Operations Sefu Bernard

"We are excited to jumpstart another active year of Alaska Sports with the opening of the Jr. NBA-Alaska program,” said Uytengsu. “This year, young girl players will also get the opportunity to participate and benefit from the program with the launch of Jr. WNBA

The Jr. WNBA program allows aspiring girls in the country to be part of NBA’s international youth development program. These girls will be given the same trainings and opportunities as Jr. NBA participants because in these modern times, girls are just as interested in sports, specially basketball, as the boys

With Alaska as presenting partner, the Jr. NBA program has reached hundreds of schools and communities nationwide and benefited thousands of children, parents, and coaches through basketball training camps and school clinics

Some of the best local basketball coaches, led by Alaska and PBA legend Jojo Lastimosa join NBA coaches led by Sefu Bernard in travelling all over the country to conduct school clinics for coaches and players during the regional selection camp starting on January 19

These activities will culminate in the National Training Camp at the SM Mall of Asia where the 2014 Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA basketball players and national coach will be named. They will then given an experience of a lifetime when they go on a trip to watch an NBA game and meet NBA players. Last year, the Jr. NBA All-Star Philippine team watched a Los Angeles Lakers home game against the Memphis Grizzlies at the Staples Center met NBA superstar Kobe Bryant

The Jr. NBA & Jr. WNBA presented by Alaska, is just one of Alaska’s Sports Development Program that inspires children to become future champions through teaching them skills to play the game while incorporating the values of determination, hard work, teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship

Adding adidas BOOST™ technology will help take this iconic shoe and the runners who wear it to the next level.”

The engineered mesh upper ensures movement feels natural and provides support where needed. A full-length stability Torsion System allows the runners’ heel and forefoot to move naturally while the mid-foot remains flexible and stable. Ultimate grip for better traction in all weather conditions is provided by a high performance Continental™ rubber outsole.

“The Supernova Glide BOOST provides runners with a strategic compilation of our most innovative technology,” said Barr. “adidas has once again expanded the boundaries in the running category with the launch of Supernova Glide BOOST.”
