Jr. NBA coaches led by Coach Chris Sumner and local Jr. NBA coaches led by PBA Legend Jeffrey Cariaso will run the camp and make the final selection for the regional finalists. The selected players will advance to the next phase of the program and will represent the National Capital Region in the National Training Camp that will be held at Don Bosco Makati and the SM Mall of Asia on May 12-14.

At the NTC, the top performing eight boys and eight girls will be culled from the finalists of the regional selection camps held in Cagayan de Oro, Lucena, Cebu and Metro Manila and the Alaska Power Camp. The 16 ballers will be named this year’s Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA All-Stars and will enjoy a unique NBA experience later in the year that will also give them the opportunity to play with other Jr. NBA All-Stars from the Southeast Asian region.
