Stamina vital for young cagers

TO become a good basketball player, budding cagers especially those below the age of 15 will need to play more streetball and basketball games.

Basketball coach Tan Chee Wan, 46, believes body-contact sports could help young players improve their individual fundamental skills and stamina.

“All youths should be involved in these kind of games so that they will be fit enough to participate in tournaments.

“They need to increase their stamina to last from morning to evening,” he said.

With 31 years of playing basketball under his belt, Tan has been training youths at the MVP Basketball Academy in Kedah, Penang and Selangor since 10 years ago.

Tan said the concept of his coaching clinic was simple — to introduce basic fundamental training skills.

“Here, players are introduced to dynamic stretching, which is a more intense warm-up session but it helps to activate muscles.

Shooting hoops the right way Students get professional advice at basketball clinic

DESPITE the scorching heat, 30 students of SMK Sin Min (Private) in Sungai Petani, Kedah, were all ears as they listened attentively to the advice given by professionals during the AND1 basketball clinic.

In the two-hour session, national basketball player Ng Sing Tee, 25, and a Kuala Lumpur player Yong Kok Wai, 26, shared insights and several tips about the game.

The students were then taught how to dribble, shoot and apply ‘defensive duty’.

To emphasise dribbling, Ng used tennis balls to stress on the importance of ball control and focus.
“Dribbling is one of the most important aspects in basketball.

“Using a tennis ball is a new technique in Malaysia. Some players are too focused on dribbling and pay little attention to others during the game,” he said during the clinic at the school recently.

Darren Son Chung, 12, and his little brother Jack, 11, have been in love with the game since they were toddlers.

In fact, almost everyday both of them would play basketball with their friends or have a friendly sibling one-on-one between them.

Darren said that unlike other children their age, both of them constantly watched professional basketball matches in particular National Basketball Association (NBA) games on television rather than cartoons.

“We do not have any preferred teams or players but we just like basketball and just like any team sports it encourages teamwork than individual skills,” he said after the clinic held at Skudai here.
Meanwhile, Jack believes the clinic would help him develop his skills to become a much better player in the future.

AND1 basketball clinic. — Photo By CHAN TAK KONG
DESPITE the scorching sun and possibility of an evening downpour, 20 boys from SMK Sultan Abdul Samad braved it out for the AND1 basketball clinic.

Two national players, Ng Sing Tee and Yim Shen Hao, paid the school a visit and shared tips with the boys on doing what they do best.

On the clinic, Yim said such activities would help increase interest in basketball among youths while Ng hoped that this interest would help in some ways to renew the pool of talent in basketball.

“Nowadays, it is more difficult for us to get the younger crowd interested in sports because there are many other things that compete for their attention, such as gadgets and devices.”

“It will be good to see talented players rise from the AND1 tournament, it is not an easy tournament to win.” said Ng, who is a former participant of the clinic.

All geared up for AND1 basketball challenge

to the boys during the basketball coaching clinic in Klang.
IT WAS an interesting training session for the boys of SMJK Kwang Hua basketball club in Klang when a former national youth coach and national basketball players dropped by to share their expertise during a AND1 basketball clinic visit.

During the two-hour session, national player Ng Sing Tee and ex-youth coach Sue Teck Hua conducted drills and dispensed tips on the art of basketballing.

Kwang Hua’s basketball team were strong contenders in the past within the Klang area but have yet to reach the same heights in recent times.

Coach Tan Cheng Yeow said the lack of renewal in talent was difficult but the boys had the potential as most of them were physically fit and some were siblings of players from their glory days.

“This coaching clinic, in conjunction with the AND1 streetball challenge, is a special start as we begin our training phase,” Cheng Yeowsaid.

Sizzling end to AND1 challenge


The Under-21 men’s team displayed a showdown of skills and stamina as team Talk To Me won by one precious point against team V3 in the grand finals of AND1 3-on-3 Streetball Challenge.

The intense game, held at Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur, took only five minutes to settle the score between the finalists in which team V3 failed to equalise the score and force the “golden ball” opportunity before the buzzer went off, ending the match with a 2-1 lead in favour of team Talk To Me.

Talk To Me’s defense was difficult to penetrate and it hindered team V3 from getting close enough to the basket, making them rely on shots from afar to gain points.

The champion’s team captain Teng Seng Fu, 20, who teamed up with Chan Shi Hong, 20 and Ong Men Kien, 21, said they worked extra hard to earn the title.

“V3 is a strong opponent and our skills are evenly matched.

Eager beavers show mettle

Players tussling for the ball in a three-on-three streetball
match during the tournament.

KUANTAN: The Kuantan edition of the AND1 Streetball Challenge saw tremendous participation from young cagers eager to prove themselves.

Tournament director Wong Wing Wai said the 120 teams from schools all over Kuantan had shown promising play and talents in streetball.

“Even though we have not held a streetball competition here for quite a while, the young students were all very eager to take up the challenge as evident by the turnout. I am sure their skills and techniques will improve as they pick up and practice the more freestyle type of play in this tournament,” he said.

Wong said the players had little exposure to the streetball style as the last time the tournament hit the east coast was five years ago.

He said the organisers would surely consider holding the tournament in Kuantan again as the players here were really interested in competing in the streetball style.

Training to shoot: Wong (centre in white) coaching schoolchildren to shoot hoops.

KUANTAN: “While basketball is normally associated with the Chinese community, the scene could be improved with more participation from the other races,” said AND1 Streetball Challenge tournament director Wong Wing Wai.

He said there was a large untapped talent pool as the Malay community make up the majority in the country.


“If more Malays started picking up basketball, I am sure we will be able to see some talented players emerge.

“This would be beneficial to the local basketball scene as it will make our national team stronger,” said Wong after coaching SJK(C) Semambu students in a basketball clinic held in conjunction with the tournament.

He said the states could certainly do more in developing players at the grassroots level.

BASKETBALL is now played by all races and no longer dominated by the Chinese only, says Ossia World of Golf executive director Saw Swee Leong.

Swee Leong, a former Thomas Cupper, said that when the challenge started six years ago, there were more Chinese players taking part in competitions and playing the sport “but the scenario has now changed”.

“This is very good for the development of the sport as it is played now in every nook and corner in townships.

“Now it is not only played by various races but it is also popular in government schools.

THE Cempaka International School junior cagers were already in motion going through the warm-up session for almost an hour as they prepared to greet the special coaching crew at their school in Cheras recently.

Although they sweated it out under the watchful eyes of their coach Kan Kim Loon before their guests’ arrival from the local NBL Academy based in Klang, they did not show signs of fatigue in stepping up to tackle challenges in their workout.

In contrast, the group comprising more than 20 eager trainees raised the tempo in accepting the stimulating ways introduced by the academy’s head coach Toto Zamar and his assistant Nathaniel Salanga. The school captain Khong Dick Mun, said it was a great learning experience for them.

FORMER international Tan Kee Hian held an exciting training session for the basketball players at the Sekolah Seri Puteri in Cyberjaya recently.

Kee Hian was impressed with the dedication showed by the students.

“The girls certainly surprised me. They had warmed up and were waiting for the coaching clinic to start. As they were fasting, I also took a decision — not to drink any water until the training session was over.

“The girls had the basics. So it was quite easy for me to communicate with them,” said Kee Hian.
