Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA: First-ever weekend 'Festival of Basketball' tips off in Kochi

The Reliance Foundation and the NBA began tipped off the first-ever Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA Weekend Festival, an extension of the Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA programme, on Saturday, November 14, at the SN Public School in Poothotta, Kochi (Kerala). This was the first-ever such weekend basketball festival for children between the ages of 6-10, held on Children's Day in India!

Over 470 children were invited to this festival and introduced by NBA coaches to five basic basketball skills stations: passing, dribbling, shooting, footwork, and game-play. The camp was led by Carlos Barroca, the Senior Director of Basketball Operations in NBA India, and assisted by coaches Joa Rocha, Jedh, and coaches from the Jr. NBA programme in Kerala.

The festival was free for participants. Boys and girls between the ages of 6-10 years in Kerala will have two more opportunities to take part in similar festivals: on November 21st at YMCA Alapuzha and November 27 at Little Flower High School in Koratty.
