TNT KaTropa, Terrence Jones, give back to community through first hoops camp

TNT KaTropa players and coaches from the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) gave back to the community by holding a basketball hoops camp for children and teens at the Kaingin II covered court in Barangay Pansol, Quezon City.

Around 50 young basketball players aged eight to 15 years old learned the fundamentals of the sport – from ball handling, defense, shooting skills, and footwork – from TNT KaTropa head coach Bong Ravena, coaches Mark Dickel, Alton Lister, Yuri Escueta, Josh Reyes, Dex Aseron, Migs Fernandez; and TNT KaTropa players Ryan Reyes, Harvey Carey, Don Trollano, JK Casino, Frank Golla, Yousef Taha, and Terrence Jones during the event.

Terrence Jones teaches a young athlete how to handle the ball on the hard court.

This is the first basketball clinic hosted by the team, in partnership with the PLDT-Smart Foundation, Amigo Foundation, and the local government unit.

“This is a way for the team to give back to the community by building the skills of the youth, supporting their dreams, and fueling their love for basketball,” said Gabby Cui, Smart assistant vice president and head of community development and partnerships.
