67 of Malaysia’s most promising basketball talents dribbled their way through to the Jr. NBA Malaysia National Training Camp and is now one step closer towards being named 2017 Jr. NBA Malaysia All-Star.
The Selection Camp ended with the selection of 33 boys and 34 girls aged 10-14 who will advance to the National Selection camp in Kuala Lumpur from July 28 – 30.

Talents went through advanced basketball drills, skill stations and scrimmages led by Chris Sumner, Jr. NBA Head Coach alongside other esteemed coaches to test and develop their basketball skills.

These potential basketball stars will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to train beside an attending current or former NBA player at the National Training Camp.  

The Jr. NBA Malaysia programme presented by Dutch Lady is free and open to boys and girls aged 5 to 14. This programme not only trains young aspiring athletes in the fundamentals of basketball, but also demonstrates the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, having a positive attitude and respect that is crucial for them to succeed in the sport. Dutch Lady supports the Jr. NBA program in Malaysia in line with its Drink. Move. Be Strong platform to encourage active lifestyle and healthy diet among Malaysian children.

The Jr. NBA Malaysia programme will culminate with eight boys and eight girls being named 2017 Jr. NBA Malaysia All-Star and embark on a unique, overseas NBA experience together with fellow Jr. NBA All-Stars from Southeast Asia later in the year.

The 2017 Jr. NBA Malaysia All-Stars will be crowned at the NBA Fan Zone this coming July 30 at 1 Utama Shopping Centre.
