From the collegiate leagues alone, we don't have a shortage of talent. The names Soc Rivera, Mike Gamboa, Elvin Pascual and Dave Marcelo immediately come into mind. In high school, Justin Chua and Arvin(?) Bringas are being groomed as future stars. And there are countless other ballers in the U.S., like Gian Chiu and Rey-Rey Parks.

I just hope no one among them turns into the next Ford Arao. :D

I've heard of this Paredes guy. I think he was part of the Elite camp a few weeks ago out of Cagayan de Oro. There's also this 5'11" 13-year-old guy named Charles Angeles in Cebu.

With these talents, we could start building our U20 Team that will compete in FIBA-Asia. Its very important at their early age that they are expose in international competition.

There is another young player, 12-13 years old, 6'0, plays all 5 positions, a good ball handler, and was MVP in a National tournament held recently... his surname is Bonleon, the son of an ex-PBA player.

here in australia they have the australian institute of sport (AIS)

this is a school specifically for sports only..
you name it...swimming, soccer, bob sled, and yeah basketball.
they have a world class facilities...
that apply sport science sport medicine...

the way they do it is something i would like to see in the philippines...
ok maybe not all sport but something similar to what the AIS do in basketball terms..

lets say they build a 'world class' facility somewhere in baguio..
why there?? coz its above sea level and its a perfect place to train environmental wise...

and players have to be selected by a panel of coaches that they think will improve OR will need some help to grow as a player...

in here they eat, sleep and shit basketball...
there will be technical coaches like a
shooting coach
defensive coach
offensive coach
nutritionist (people overlook this one factor all the time, you cant eat balot all the time)

of course this is free for all student/players...
but they have to prove them self there...

well this wont be possible without the backing of the corporate's
coz like i said before money talks bullshit walks.

anyway this is just a dream...
if i win those american big ass lotto ill fucking fund it myself...

48 cagers named to RP pool for SEA Games

By Joey Villar
Sunday, June 10, 2007

The BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas yesterday announced the formation of an all-amateur national pool tasked to keep the country’s domination of the Southeast Asian Games basketball competition.

Forty-eight players, mostly from the Philippine Basketball League, were named to the pool, according to SBP executive director Patrick Gregorio.

Jason Castro, JC Intal and Chico Lanete of Harbour Centre, Fil-Am Ryan Reyes and Samigue Eman of Henkel-Sista, Larry Roriguez of Dazz, JR Quinahan and Ronjay Buenafe of Burger King, Joe Devance, Marvin Cruz and Patrick Cabahug of Toyota Balintawak, Jeff Chan of Magnolia and Ken Bono, Doug Kramer and Macky Escalona of CL Pera Padala are among PBL players in the list of candidates for the RP team going to battle in the SEA Games slated Dec. 6-16 in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

The collegiate players in the pool are Jervy Cruz, Jojo Dunil and Dylan Ababou of Santo Tomas, Marcy Arellano, Kelvin Gregorio and Mark Borboran of University of the East, Rico Maeirhofer and JV Casio of La Salle, Yousif Aljamal of San Beda, Rino Berame of University of Visayas and 6-foot-11 Fil-Am Gregory Slaughter of Cebu.

Harbour Centre owner Mikee Romero was named project director with Junel Baculi the head coach, Louie Alas assistant coach and Jorge Gallent consultant.

“It’s just the start, the best has yet to come,” said Gregorio in a press briefing attended by Romero, Baculi and PBL chairman Gil Angeles of Toyota.

Romero, who also bankrolled RP’s successful campaign in the Southeast Asian Champions Cup in Indonesia last April, pledged P10 million to fund the Nationals’ campaign in the biennial, 11-nation meet.

“It’s my personal goal to win the SEA Games gold so I’m putting P10 million to this project,” Romero said.

The PBL is also devoting one conference for the team. This means the league will not be having a regular season-closing tournament and instead will hold an invitational meet that would allow the RP squad to field in a squad.

“The league is sacrificing one conference to help our national team prepare for the SEA Games,” Angeles said.

Baculi said it’s important to form the team and start the preparation now instead of coming up with a squad late and cramming in the tournament proper.

Baculi, however, stressed that those who are not in the list can still make it since some “shoo-ins” might not make the team because they might apply for the PBA draft on June 30, the same date they will trim the list to 30.

From 30, Baculi will come up with the final 12-man roster in August.

“It’s better to prepare early than cram,” said Baculi.

those teams formed by amateur stand-outs are normally event-oriented (meaning they just prepare when there is an event) and not program-oriented (wherein there is really a basketball program).. I hope somehow, the SBP will make a continous program for these youngsters, sayang e. World U19 Championship contenders in the making na pala, who knows :D

Here's a news clipping that would interest everyone from philstar 07/16/07

Four-time PBA Most Valuable Player and former MBA commissioner Ramon “El Presidente” Fernandez and champion PBA coach Eric Altamirano got the nod as heads of the BAP-SBP National Training Centers for Visayas and NCR, respectively.

BAP-SBP executive director Patrick Gregorio said the two hoop icons would spearhead the scientific training of possible national team aspirants in their areas.

Fernandez, a University of San Carlos alumnus who won a gold medal as a member of the 1973 RP team to the FIBA-Asia Championships and a silver medal in the 1990 Asian Games in Beijing, brings his vast experience in the sport to the forefront while Altamirano, the 1986 UAAP MVP who also steered Purefoods and Mobiline to PBA titles in 1997 and 1998, respectively, brings his coaching and training expertise to the program. His Coach E Basketball School is among the most respected in the nation.

“The aim of the BAP-SBP National Training Centers is to harness the potentials of young cagers aged 10 to 16,” says Gregorio. “They’d be too young to be allowed to leave their families for this kind of training in Metro Manila. That’s why we designed this program so that they can stay in their regions and still enjoy quality basketball education from among the best.”

Gregorio also expressed optimism in the chosen heads.

“Don Ramon (Fernandez) has won in every basketball level. It won’t be everyday that a four-time PBA MVP will be teaching you everything he knows and that’s inspiring in itself,” Gregorio notes. “Coach E (Altamirano) has touched so many lives with his coaching philosophy and I’m quite sure it will be an honor for these youngsters to experience a winning attitude under a bona-fide winner like him.”

Gregorio also disclosed that the heads for Luzon and Mindanao will be announced in the coming days, putting the BAP-SBP’s first national program in motion.

“This will change how we discover and train the future of Philippine basketball,” the youthful basketball leader explains.

- not bad ey ?:)

CDO cagers in merciless form

WITH 6-foot-6 power center Philip "Papot" Paredes spearheading its formidable frontlines, Team CDO's 15-under squad looks like to complete today a "walk in the park" basketball championship win in the 2nd POF qualifying games here at Don Gregorio Pelaez Sports Center.

Updates on the Kagay-an Festival 2007.

The CDO hoopsters made mincemeat of their hapless opponents in the elimination round, blasting Sarangani twice, 138-59 and 132-74 and host Misor also in big margin, 147-44 to easily advance in the finals.

"Grabe tinunga ang iskor...wala kaayoy challenge," local cage buffs could only blurt in unison after witnessing the murderous conquests by the wards of Boy Dacoco and assistant coach Belong Padilla.

With just token opposition in sight, CDO's side expects Sarangani to win this morning against Misamis Oriental and arrange a title showdown with them at 2 p.m.

In the last match of the day, Sarangani hardly put up a serious resistance, but Dacoco and company won't like to be complacent.

"Fighter ang Sarangani so, sila among gi-expect nga moaway sa amo sa finals. It's obvious nga wala na kaayo sila mibuylo sa among second encounter sa elimination para makareserba sila'g energy sa ilang knockout match with Misor," Dacoco told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.

Joselino "Nonong" Roa, a member of the Caloy Loyzaga-led RP men's team that made the country proud in the 60s golden era, was among the basketball spectators who endured the blistering heat of the sun at the Pelaez Center's open court.

"Potential ang mga players karon nga ni-represent sa Cagayan de Oro kay kugihan unya naa say height," Roa said.

Other than Paredes, a protegee of Oro Chowking manager Ferdie Padilla, fellow Sacred Heart stalwarts composing CDO's powerhouse roster include Justin Protacio, Kenneth Llauderes, Dennis Jabagat, Arnold Sendaydiego Jr., John Marco Tayongtong, Roldan Sara, John Carlo Casiño, Jabanie Jalalon, Roger Abaday Jr. and the Neri brothers, Aegis and Eric.

Are all of these kids in the team over 6 feet already??

What could I say?? SH*T!! And this kind of massacre was done by a bunch of kids 15 and under??? Are they on steroids or something?? C'mon, now that's a VERY VERY talented group of kids I should say for them to have the capability of reaching that high scores and easily crushing opponents at the same time CONSISTENTLY!!

Well, if I was the coach... I'll let them compete against bigger competition... or maybe in national tournaments... or even let them go against 20 and under competition... if they can still wreck havoc here, well I'll be damned! :D

SBP should closely monitor this team... They are very promising! :)

Is there any training pool or program for Filipino kids 15 and under here in the States? My son is very interested in playing with other Filipino kids. He's 13 years old right now, but has been playing AAU ball since 10 yrs. old. He's only 5'8" but just started growing. He's been playing against tough competition for 3 years now. He plays the 4 position, and most of the time playing against 6'0"-6'2" kids and held his own. His team placed 26th among 100 teams 2 years ago. If you have any more info pls. let me know. Thank You.

SBP plots comprehensive venture to tap young talents
By Dennis Principe
Correspondent

Basketball officials plan to put up national teams per age group patterned after Fiba.

It would be the first such comprehensive venture that will pluck out the country’s best young players, according to Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

Under the system, the SBP will conduct local tournaments, as well as field players in international competition in under-14, under-17 and under-19 age groups.

Patrick Gregorio, general secretary of SBP, seeks to fortify the National Basketball Training Center (NBTC), which will teach internationally accepted methods of training.

“The Fiba conducts tournaments sa mga ganitong age group so mas maganda kung bubuo na din tayo ng team na pwede na din nating isali sa mga youth tournaments ng Fiba,” Gregorio said.

Gregorio met with Ramon Fernandez and Eric Altamirano yesterday at the Richmonde Hotel in Pasig City to further concretize plans for the NBTC, which seeks full approval from the SBP board on September 15. The NBTC hopes to be launched in October.

The NBTC will be established initially in Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao. Fernandez has been tapped to handle the Visayas program, while Altamirano as NBTC’s program director.

Alex Compton, who was also in the Richmonde meeting, is expected to hold clinics under the center.

The long-term goal, Gregorio added, is the formation of a national squad without solely relying on the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA).

“Hindi naman biglaan ’yung hindi natin paggamit ng PBA players. What we want to do is to eventually make the project parallel with the PBA, but ultimately sa NBTC na manggagaling ’yung nucleus ng national team.”

The SBP is looking at a joint venture with the PBA team that will involve two separate national teams, one composed of pros and another composed of a SBP-constructed team.

“I think this is the first time na magkakaroon ng ganitong recruitment ng players for the national team,” Fernandez said, describing the NBTC.

The NBTC will need a P5-million annual budget in training 40 boys and 40 girls who will compose the training center.

Gregorio is also inviting esteemed Serbian coach Vlade Djurovic to come to the country early next month to get his input regarding the program and, at the same time, observe the way basketball is played in the country.

I think all Pinoy players who are at least 6'7" & less than 20 yrs. old should AUTOMATICALLY qualify for the pool. That is the best way to develop tall, young players in the country.
