on

SM signs an agreement to support the National Basketball Training Center (NBTC) Developmental League.

SM, through its entertainment arm, SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. (SMLEI) has inked a partnership to fully support the NBTC as it develops its grassroots program to build basketball athletes that may potentially excel as the Philippines’ representatives in the global arena. Going beyond monetary sponsorship, SMLEI will be building the awareness and means of stability of the NBTC, so as to lay the foundation of the brand for the long run.

“SM is very proud to support the NBTC.” Says Edgar Tejerero, president of SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. “SM believes in creating opportunities for the Filipino to realize his or her full potential through actively involving our company in sports development.”

The National Basketball Training Center Developmental League, headed by Coach Eric Altamirano, is a nationwide grassroots program that aims to identify, prepare, and develop outstanding players found in public and private schools nationwide. “It is a great honor for the NBTC to partner with a name as highly esteemed as that of SM. The NBTC is fully invested in its vision of Developing Skills, Building Character, and Raising Leaders in young basketball players and coaches nationwide.” says Alex Compton, NBTC National Training Director. “SM has been like minded in its development throughout the Philippines. We foresee a long partnership in trying to bring the best out of the next generation of basketball leaders.”

The league will create learning environment opportunities for players to enhance their individual and team skills through enabled coaches, outstanding examples of graduated players, and challenging competitions that promote the values of leadership, commitment to excellence, and discipline. Alumni of the NBTC are players Kiefer Ravena, Terrence Romeo, Jeric Teng, Kevin Alas, Troy Rosario, and Scotty Thompson.

The NBTC will begin its local city tournaments on January 9, 2016. For more information on the NBTC, follow and like their Facebook page.
