ALASKA: Bringing out the Child's passionate enthusiasm in Basketball!


Solidifying one's passion in sports is rooted not only on their ability to play. Child's passion is driven by others who influence them to learn how basketball  truly works,it is played by the heart.

A child's brain can be molded & can easily adapt & pick up new learnings especially if the knowledge is imparted with their role model such as their father,siblings or cousins.

It's ordinary for Filipino kids to love basketball with the fame of our all star PBA. Definitely, baguio kids has their own idol in NBA. Dreams to compete internationally and learned basketball skills with strength,confidence,consistency & accuracy.

During our stay in Baguio JrNBA/ JrWNBA basketball training camp,I witnessed the alertness,energy,enthusiasm & eagerness to learn from the participants.


Their outstanding willingness to learn some points on how they can enriched their skills. However, being a kid never fades way to enjoy life and play around. What I love most in this coverage which is sponsored by ALASKA, you can see the passion of basketball on their eyes,  like this 2 kids that I watched how they drive their moves, dribling, shooting skills and defensive attack.

Their names are:  Glenn Canda and Stephanie Ranio.

Stephanie Ranio
Stephanie, a 13 year old girl from Sicai Baguio is oneOf the Soccer player on her School. She just recently,transferred from their Soccer team into Basketball Varcity, it's been 1 yr, since,she played basketball on her team. It runs on her system that she loves sports. When, I talked to her, she's quite hesitant & shy. But, if you look in her eyes and watched how she played.

There's a certain power of action, a moves like a CHAMPION, like how ALASKA remodels an individual to stand up to be a WINNER on their life's journey. Upon, seeing how he defensively, get the ball from her opponents, how she shoot and make some lay-up. I can see her strong drive for basketball. How she passed the ball and how she like to take risk & eager to have points in the ring. I believe in her strength and valor, I know with her patience and perseverance, she can get far. It's a matter on how you believe in yourself like ALASKA who creates champions that reinforce confidence, hardwork & discipline.

Glenn Canda
This kid really amazed everyone which includes me. It's not how small you are, but, how big is your heart in BASKETBALL. Glenn has been playing basketball since he was 7 years old, his the youngest of her 2 lovely siblings. He loves basketball so much & he joined Baguio JrNBA to showcase his kills and learn more strategies on how he could play more confidently.

Like the dream plan of ALASKA, Nutrition, Action and CHAMPION. Glenn shows an incredible act of sportmanship and teamwork. As he drives himself to passed the ball on his team mates, on how he used his 3point skills to score for the team. His skills overpowers others by his alertness, speed and joyfullness inside the court. I see in his eyes, how he wanted to learn more about the basketball industry. His quite small in his age, but, just like other NBA legends who are not giants but they excel and become great champions in history. I believe this kid will reached his potential goals. He needs strength and confidence coming from ALASKA wherein they guide children to have a positive values and have an Active lifestyle thru Sports which you gained discipiline, valor and leadership skills.
