“The best players are not the most skilled players, they are those that have something special in them,that puso factor,” – Former men’s national basketball team head coach Chot Reyes.
Nike Philippines launched on Tuesday a reality documentary and basketball development program named “Rise” which aims to give a training ground to 24 street ballers from all over the archipelago.
A nationwide search shall conducted to bring opportunity and hope to aspiring ballers aged 16-21 around the country.
Regional try-outs shall be held in four cities: Dagupan (June 27), Manila (June 28), Cebu (July 4), and Davao (July 5). Aspirants may also write to Nike.com for a chance to be invited.
The Rise series will run for six weeks with selected players immersing in a Nike experience which includes technical training, strength, and conditioning. The contestants will have full use of gears, equipment, and a training ground named “House of Rise.”
Chot Reyes and Jimmy Alapag shall serve as the coaches throughout the documentary which shall air on TV5.
