Jr. NBA, an international youth development program that promotes basketball participation and an active lifestyle among children, is returning to Thailand for the third consecutive year. Presented by Foremost, this year’s free event launched its opening ceremonies on June 4th and will run through July. Participants, both boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 14 years old, are trained in the fundamentals of basketball and learn the importance of the Jr. NBA core values of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, a positive Attitude, and Respect (S.T.A.R.). Players between the ages of 10 to 14 will be eligible for selection to participate in a National Training Camp that will be visited by a NBA star.
The program culminates with the selection of 10 boys and 5 girls, who will be named as Jr. NBA Thailand All-Stars. These standout campers will be provided with a unique, overseas NBA Experience and the opportunity to play against fellow Jr. NBA All-Stars from around Southeast Asia later in the year.
