2006 PBA Rookies

Prospective applicants for this year’s Rookie Draft get to show both their physical and mental skills when the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) hold its traditional rookie camp in two different venues at the end of the month.

The camp is set 28, 30 and 31 July, with supervisor of officials Ramil Cruz acting as camp director.

The first day of the event will be a whole-day affair at the Club 650 gym in Libis, Quezon City from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

Initial activities include measurement of the rookies’ physical aspects from height, wing span to current weight.

Then skills and strength evaluation follows, from the simple push ups, bench press, sit ups, sprints to pull ups.

Finally in the afternoon, drills will be conducted, with participants engaging in agility, shooting, dribbling and fastbreak activities.

The camp takes a break the following day, but resumes on 30-31 July with all rookies seeing action in the four-game schedule to be played at the Caruncho gym in Pasig City.

All participants will be split into four teams. Group 1 plays Group 3 in the first game at 2:00 P.M., while Group 2 clashes with Group 4 at 4:00 P.M.

The final day of the camp is a crossover double header between Group 1 vs. Group 2 (2:00 P.M.) and Group 3 vs. Group 4 (4:00 P.M.).

The official rookie team rosters will be sent out this Friday (24 July), although coaching assignments are going to be announced later.

This year’s PBA Rookie Draft is set 2 August 2009 at the Market Market Place in Taguig.

Burger King owns the no. 1 overall pick.
