The National Training Camp, staged at the IGB International School from August 3rd to 4th and at the One Utama Oval on August 5th, is the culmination of the 2018 Jr. NBA Malaysia presented by Dutch Lady. Brogdon will assist coaching the top 60 boys and girls from the Regional Selection Camp in Kuala Lumpur and the 40 outstanding players selected by teachers from the Jr. NBA Coaches Academy. Rocky, the official mascot of the Denver Nuggets, will also be in attendance to interact with the players and entertain fans. At the end of the National Training Camp, eight boys and eight girls will be named as the 2018 Jr. NBA Malaysia All-Stars and travel to Shanghai in October to attend NBA China Games 2018 presented by Vivo featuring the Philadelphia 76ers and the Dallas Mavericks. 

“It’s inspiring to see how basketball is played around the world and how I can positively impact its growth here in Southeast Asia,” said Brogdon. “I’m excited for the opportunity to train with Malaysia’s aspiring athletes and instill within them the core values of the game to help them reach their potential on and off the court.”

“Dutch Lady, the leading liquid milk brand in Malaysia*, is excited to work with NBA once again to promote the importance of inculcating an active lifestyle and proper nutrition among Malaysian children,” said Dutch Lady Malaysia, Marketing Director, Consumer Dairy, Ramjeet Kaur Virik. “It’s essential for our Malaysian parents and coaches to understand the health benefits of dairy nutrition that provides nutrients like milk protein that help build strong young athletes and allow them to unleash their optimum performance in sports.” 

Brogdon was drafted 36th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2016 NBA Draft and was named as the Rookie of the Year and the All-Rookie First Team in 2017. Brogdon averaged 13 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game this season. 

The Jr. NBA, the league’s global youth basketball participation program for boys and girls, teaches the fundamental skills as well as the core values of the game at the grassroots level in an effort to help grow and improve the youth basketball experience for players, coaches and parents. During the 2017-18 season, the NBA will reach more than 26 million youth in 71 countries through a variety of camps, clinics, skills challenges, league play and outreach events.

Dutch Lady is partnering with the Jr. NBA program as part of its Drink. Move. Be Strong (DMBS) campaign to help foster the habit of living an active lifestyle and following a healthy diet to highlight the importance of milk nutrition in supporting Malaysian children's growth and development. According to the South East Asian Nutrition Survey (SEANUTS), 50 percent of surveyed Malaysian children were diagnosed with calcium deficiency, with a high percentage of them with vitamin D insufficiency despite having lots of sunlight in Malaysia. Dutch Lady will also organize a range of edu-tainment activities in the upcoming Jr. NBA clinics to engage and educate Malaysian children on the importance of milk nutrition, an essential source of protein and calcium, to address the concern of nutrition deficiency among Malaysian children. 

In addition to presenting partner Dutch Lady, the event is supported by the Ministry of Education Malaysia, official partner Gatorade, Spalding and Westports Dragons. Astro is the official broadcast partner of the Jr. NBA in Malaysia.
