The CNMI’s Lia Rangamar will be participating in the IBF Youth Leadership Seminar that will be held in Singapore this weekend.
The June 22-25 seminar is organized by FIBA’s Foundation, the International Basketball Foundation. Fourteen other representatives from South East Asia and the Pacific region will join the event.
The seminar’s participants will undergo an intensive leadership training, with the goal of delivering a FIBA-sanctioned U18 mixed national 3×3 tournament in their respective countries.
Each individual will be educated on the intricacies of presiding over a FIBA-sanctioned 3X3 tourney. FIBA will fully support and fund the U18 3×3 mixed tournament in preparation for the Youth Leaders Basketball Cup.
The national tournaments will be the official qualifiers for the Youth Leaders Basketball Cup set from Sept. 7 to 10 this year in Bali, Indonesia, and the winning teams will represent their country in the final tournament.
The seminar will be supervised by Mthoko Madonda, the former captain of the South African Basketball national team and founder of Reach Sports Management. Madonda supervised the IBF 3×3 Young Lions Cup in Antilles last year.
“We are excited to be working with IBF on the Youth Leadership Cup again. We are looking forward to meeting 15 amazing youth leaders from South East Asia and the Pacific and providing them with leadership and basketball for good training,” said Mthoko.
Joining Rangamar in the seminar are Indonesia’s, Laurentius Oei, Singapore’s Wan Qing Chin, Brunei’s Ruby Ang, Malaysia’s Zhong Shin Thea, Cambodia’s Sunleang Dy, Myanmar’s Min Zin Thun, Thailand’s Pornutcha Sawatong, Vietnam’s Lam Quach Trung, Papua New Guinea’s Anderson Hewe, the Philippines’ Amanda Alejandrino, Guam’s Kali Benavent, Laos’ Vontavanh Kompadith, Timor Leste’s Virinia Da Cruz, and Fiji’s Tiyana Kainamoli.
