THE Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters wrapped up another successful edition of the Phoenix Pinoy Hoops Basketball Camp in November and December at the Philippine Basketball Association team’s home court at The Upper Deck in Pasig City.

Dubbed The Phoenix Pinoy Hoops Basketball Camp-Family and Friends Edition, kids aged six to 16 participated in the program hosted by some of the team members.

“We’re ecstatic with the results. Despite this specific edition being exclusive to kids of Phoenix employees, business partners and friends, we welcomed many attendees through kids who were eager to participate,” said Phoenix Senior Vice President and Fuel Masters team governor Atty. Raymond Zorrilla.

The four-day camp attracted more than 40 boys and girls with Isaiah Lanot (13 and up), Juan Augusto Barreto (intermediate) and Joaquin Antonio Alvarez (kids) being named Most Valuable Players.

Fuel Masters head coach Topex Robinson, players Sean Anthony, Tyler Tio, Jason Perkins, JV Mocon and Kaleb Wesson along with team manager Paolo Bugia and assistant coach Willie Wilson trained the campers.

The kids were grouped according to their age range—6-8, 9-11, 12-14 and 15-16—and skill level and difficulty with various drills.

They were taught lessons on skill development and controlled competitive exercises for short scrimmages and tournament-style competition.

The basketball camp’s first three days featured skills development lessons, such as dribbling, passing, shooting and defense.

The participants’ skills were further honed through short scrimmages and controlled competitive exercises to apply their learning and prepare them for the tournament-style competition and other activities held on the fourth and last day of training.

Notable games included team relay and a parent-and-kid shooting challenge to develop quality time between kids and their families.

“There’s talent in every kid, and the team is beyond grateful to be given the opportunity to help them unleash their strength through sports,” team captain Anthony said.

The Phoenix Pinoy Hoops program is a basketball clinic that aims to fuel the passion of young and amateur enthusiasts with the assistance of the Phoenix Fuel Masters team.

The Pinoy Hoops camps were held since 2018, including editions in Subic and Davao.

“This program is important to the team and the Phoenix Philippines Foundation for it is a meaningful contribution to the country’s basketball community,” Zorrilla said. “We have many ideas in the pipeline, and we hope that more young enthusiasts will be part of what’s to come for the program next year.”
