Ayo focuses on family, resigns as Chooks 3×3 head trainer

Aldin Ayo has resigned from his post as head trainer of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3.

Ayo admitted it was a difficult decision that he had to make with a heavy heart.

The 44-year-old mentor has to take care of his mother who has been diagnosed with stage four cancer. Ayo is an only child, hence his desire to be there for his mother and devote his time and attention to her.

“It was a tough decision to leave Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas but I need to be on my mom’s side in the battle that she is facing,” said Ayo about his 69-year-old mom.

“I’m very grateful to Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. and Boss Ronald Mascariñas for giving me the opportunity to train and coach the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 National Team and to represent the country through the sport we love most. I’m forever grateful.”

Ayo replaced Eric Altamirano as the head trainer of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 back in November 2020.

Under Ayo’s watch, he led the Chooks team to greater heights, capped by winning the 2022 Chooks-to-Go FIBA 3×3 Super Quest — the country’s first title in the pro circuit since 2014.

“We are thankful for the service of Coach Aldin Ayo not just to our teams but also to our organization. He brought a lot of changes to the way our team was run,” said Mascariñas.

“Coach Aldin will always be family to us and we will be here for him and his family in these trying times.”

Chico Lanete will be the interim head coach of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 in the meantime.
