 The first Regional Selection Camp of Jr. NBA Philippines 2019 presented by Alaska was held at the Manuel Enverga University Foundation in Lucena City, Quezon, Philippines on March 9-10, 2019. Nearly 1,000 young basketball players participated.

Staged for the second time in Lucena City, the league’s global youth basketball participation program will send four boys and four girls to the National Training Camp at Don Bosco Technical Institute Makati on May 17-19, 2019. They will be members of the 40-boy and 40-girl-participant pool that will fill the roster through the four remaining Regional Selection Camps and a select group from the Alaska Power Camp.

The athletes demonstrated a proficiency in fundamental skills and embodied the core values of the game through the two-day camp and are set to compete among talented athletes nationwide for the Jr. NBA All-Star selection. Comprised of as many as five boys and five girls, Jr. NBA Philippines All-Stars will advance to the first Jr. NBA Global Championship Asia Pacific Qualifiers, a week-long selection camp in June that includes top youth players from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
