ALASKA TOURNAMENT FOR JR. NBA AND JR. WNBA COVERAGE AT BENGUET STATE UNIVERSITY, BAGUIO CITY

THE PARTICIPANTS AND COACHES OF ALASKA TOURNAMENT FOR 
JR. NBA & JR. WNBA COVERAGE AT BENGUET STATE UNIVERSITY, BAGUIO CITY

HOW FAR WILL YOU GO TO FOLLOW YOUR DREAM 
TO BECOME A BASKETBALL STAR
It was my first time to ever be part of Alaska Tournament for Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA and my seeing the kids may it be boys or girls. Lets face it Basketball is not an easy game because it is full of challenges and determination it is not a sports for everyone. But during the audition i witnessed a lot of kids "Wanting" to be one of the lucky contestants to be part of it and did all the challenges i could ever imagine doing at their age.

Held February 20-21, 2016 at Benguet State University, Baguio City. The First Regional taken place in Baguio City one of four tip off other locations are Manila, Cebu and Davao.
When i first enter the venue i saw a lot of aspiring kids falling in line from different ages and different heights, dreaming and hoping to be one of the winner for their region both boys and girls.

I know that Basketball has always been a boy/man game thing but seeing girls wanting to be part of it is really an outstanding thing, and there are a lot of girls who fall in line did all the training and got the skills for the audition. One of the girls who i interviewed said "If boys can do so are we, we would like to prove as well that we can also play basketball and that girls can also excel in it...."

I had the opportunity to have a moment to interview one of the coaches Craig Brown (Jr. NBA Head Coach) for Alaska JRNBA and JRWNBA. 
As well as one of the legends in PBA, Jeff Cariaso (Alaska Power Camp Coach) for Alaska JRNBA and JRWNBA.

The Boys and Girls had different challenges that they went thru in order for the coaches to determine if they got the Star Quality to win for their Region. Few of the skills includes Dribbling, High Shot Shooting, Speed Layup, Passing, Agility Station and a lot more to mention....

HERE ARE THE VIDEOS WHICH SHOWS DIFFERENT CHALLENGES THAT THE BOYS AND GIRLS WENT THRU FROM THE AUDITION!

Going thru the auditions and or try outs is not an easy thing to do because Basketball must be taken seriously, you've got to be strong enough and full of strength and one of the best way to have those qualifications is by drinking ALASKA in your daily life because with Alaska Idol sa Energy para sa Bilis at Liksi it has 20+ essential nutrients.
Winning is everything is joining any contest but of course the most important thing along the process is gaining friends and experiences. I hope a lot of the aspiring contestants had gained knowledge on what to do next year once they joined the audition again and bring along their friends as well whoever they meet during the tournament.
As the saying goes No man is an island...  Indeed.

Here are the list of the kids who were chosen to push thru for the next round:
 Alaska Jr. WNBA Finalist
 Alaska Jr. NBA Finalist

And goes on the next day in which the finals will be chosen and selected but only those with "Star NBA Quality" will push thru.

One of the best thing also during the Alaska Tournament is having THE GANG which includes Mommy Lariza, Ate Cie, Ate Lani (Sexy), Ate Lani (Kulot), Ate Leira (I mean you know), Nathalie (na iniwan ako sa session road kaya ako nadapa) hahaha and Binibining Allan hehehe.... And of course super Thankful to Ms. Vhimz (Super Cool) hehehe and Ms. Sasa and her sister as well as all the other staff who became a part of the Alaska Tournament... Pahabol pati sa Birthday Boy (Rumours Shot) hehehe.

We stayed in a beautiful (not scary) Supreme Hotel just near Benaguet State University and just perfect for a few rides to Strawberry Farm where we got the chance to have a few hours to buy some or should I say a lot (minsan lang eto eh) hehehe.

I know we are all different individuals with different attitudes and kaechusan sa buhay but it was yes it was surprising that we all colide with each other (echus).

Furthermore here are some of the photos with The Gang, i hope it will be forever remind the Gang about our experiences and being privileged to be part of the Alaska Tours. I miss the laughters and scary stories alogn the way (haist Ate Lani kulot hehehe).


WALA PARING TATALO SA ALASKA!
