Because dreams of basketball glory isn’t just for the privileged, kids from Barangay Milagrosa in Project 4, Quezon City were also given the opportunity to hone their potential through a free workshop conducted by the Basketball Efficiency & Scientific Training (BEST) Center, the Philippines’ premiere basketball clinic.
The event was held as part of BEST Center’s community development program through sports.
Participants were taught the basics of playing basketball in a scientific way, such as handling, dribbling, shooting, and passing. After the workshop, they were encouraged to continually practice these techniques to improve their game.
“BEST Center has always been an advocate of sports development especially in the grassroots level. It is our hope that by reaching out to the Filipino children through our clinics, we can inspire more kids to get into sports and lead an active healthy lifestyle,” said BEST Center founder Coach Nic Jorge.
The BEST Center clinics teaches kids the fundamentals of basketball and helps them develop good character and values such as discipline, sportsmanship and camaraderie through their interaction with coaches, instructors, classmates, and peers. Founded in 1978, BEST Center is an award-winning basketball clinic inducted in the Philippine Sportswriter Association Hall of Fame in 2007 for pioneering scientific approach of basketball training in the country.
Since its establishment, BEST Center has produced a string of top national cagers, including Chris Tiu and Keifer Ravena. The clinic has also expanded to offer volleyball training for girls.
