Junior NBA presented by Dutch Lady for Promising Baskeball Talents

Last weekend, Mommy Jane had registered 3 Little Angels for Junior NBA Camp which held at IGB International School. We reached there at 9 a.m. and there are lots of parents bringing their children to the counter for registration and collection of t-shirts. Over 1,000 children had participated for the Dutch Lady Regional Selection Camp. 
Top 64 of Malaysia's most promising basketball talents became one step closer towards being selected as a 2016 Jr, NBA Malaysia All-Star. Jr. NBA Malaysia 2016 presented by Dutch Lady Regional Selection Camp ended with the selection of 40 boys and 24 girls aged 10-14 who will advance to the National Selection camp in Kuala Lumpur from August 5-7 for One Step Closer to Stardome.
The clinics were led by Craig Brown, Jr. NBA 2016 Head Coach alongside with other esteemed coaches. Participants had to put through skill stations and clinics to pass the test and develop their basketball skills. They were nurtured in learning the importance of the Jr. NBA's core values of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, positive Attitude, Respect (S.T.A.R) and the benefits of proper nutrition.

Dutch Lady is the presenting partner of the Jr. NBA program in Malaysia as part of its Drink, Move, Be Strong campaign. The campaign encourages an active lifestyle and a healthy diet among Malaysia youth while highlighting milk's role in a child's growth and development, building muscle, keeping our bones strong and also filing up and rehydrating.

Active or retired NBA player had attended the National Training Camp and feature an NBA Cares community outreach event. The program will culminate with the selection of 10 boys and five girls who will named as 2016 Jr. NBA Malaysia All-Stars. They will embark on a unique, overseas NBA experience together with fellow Jr. NBA All-Starts from Southeast Asia later in the year.
This coming 7th August, remember to come to 1 Utama Shopping Centre for the crowned of 2016 Jr. NBA Malaysia All-Stars at the NBA roadshow.

This is the first time Mommy Jane brought 3 Little Angels to Jr. NBA for a basketball training. CW is learning this sport at school but WH and WT never play basketball before. After learning it, both the boys show interest to the sport. To support their interest, Mommy Jane had bought 3 cartoons of Dutch Lady milk just to get the free basketball for Little Angels and they love it so much and continue the training at home. With the constant training, I'm sure they will excel at the sport and hopefully will be elected to the National Camp next year.
