"If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over? Stop searching the world for treasure, the real treasure is in yourself"

I always believe that the perfect right time in achieving your child dreams in life, is start in their own self and develop it with proper guidance and support.  And I am glad to know that Alaska Philippines partnership with Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA is here to guide us in developing our children skills in basketball and also to promote healthy lifestyle.
