January 24, 2016 UPDATE:

WINTER CLINIC THIS SUNDAY (January 24) IS CANCELLED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER
Filipino Heritage Night IV THANK YOU
In behalf of Filipino American Basketball Association of Metropolitan DC, Inc. (FABA) we would like to thank everyone for supporting our once a year event, the Filipino Heritage Night at Verizon Center. It’s an event where we can celebrate our Heritage and Culture in front of a large crowd during the NBA game, Miami Heat vs. Washington Wizard.  This marks the 4th year FABA hosted the event and we are extremely proud that we shattered the record of Filipinos in attendance of all times. It is our hope that you will continue to support and help us for a record breaking attendance next year. 
It was a fun filled day with 12 teams playing in an exhibition games from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm followed with an early entry to watch the shoot around of both teams, Wizards and Heat. It is an opportunity for everyone in attendance to get as close as possible with their favorite Wizards and Heat players.
Then more than 100 kids who bought ticket from FABA got to HIGH FIVE the Washington Wizards or Miami Heat players when they came out from the tunnel onto the court for warm up as they are getting ready for tip off.
It was a riveting rendition of the National Anthem performed by Justine, “ICY” Moral as we witnessed and listened her sing the Star Spangled Banner. “ICY” made us all proud.

Then during the halftime of the game, Kultura Pilipino based in Richmond, Va. WOW the crowd with their performance of “SAYAW IGOROT”. It was a scintillating performance of the group that got the crowd in “AWE”.
AS A BONUS EVERYONE WHO PURCHASED TICKETS FROM US RECEIVED A WASHINGTON WIZARDS T-SHIRT COURTESY OF CUSTOMLINK.
Thank you to the following:
FABA players and families
INC (Iglesia ni Christo) Washington DC area

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

On behalf of FABA of Metropolitan DC, Inc. Officers and BOD, we would like to thank all of you who joined our league every Sunday, believed in our training and supported our delegations to compete in tournaments whether it’s in the Metro DC area or away.

Although there were days when we are faced with challenges but when we see the children’s faces; the willingness of the parents to support their kids play recreational basketball; all the players specially the players who grew up in front of our eyes that have been with us since the inception of FABA; Coaches, Trainers, Sponsors and Supporters, each and everyone of you truly became part of our families and inspired us to continue our voluntary service to our community. 

Again from the bottom of our hearts, thank you and it is our hope that you will still continue to support FABA’s activities in the years to come.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,
Ken G. Mendoza
President

On behalf of Filipino-American Basketball Association (FABA) of Metropolitan DC, Inc. family, we would like to thank, first and foremost, our Almighty God for giving us the privilege to host the 1st Philippine Athletic Sports Association (PASA) Basketball and Volleyball Tournaments this Independence Day weekend (July 4 &5).  These tournaments were established to promote unity among the Filipino-American community in North America through the game that we all love:  BASKETBALL and VOLLEYBALL. We are grateful for the trust that PASA has given us and hope we were able to fulfill their expectations.

We would also like to thank the PASA City Directors, all the coaches, players, team managers, friends and relatives who came to the just concluded tournament in Washington DC at NEW 24 FITNESS in District Heights, Maryland.

We highly commend the organizations of the different participating/competing cities for achieving a sense of unity through athletic development; their involvement in this demanding and challenging tasks towards the promotion of sportsmanship and healthy competition through basketball/volleyball among Filipino American community.

Each year, there are more teams of children, young adults and adults who are willing to sacrifice their time and best efforts and honor to represent their respective cities. We know that everyone will play the game fairly and compete as hard as they can. We believe everyone show the spirit of sportsmanship, unity and camaraderie among each other for everyone to enjoy this highly competitive and rewarding event that we all experience.

During this tournament, there were disappointments, winners and losers; we should however always remember that this part of our daily lives. It is nice to win but winning is not everything; it is what we learned from that we make us all WINNERS!!!

Special thanks to all our sponsors, donors, supporters and volunteers that made this tournament a success.

We truly hope that all of you had a wonderful time and enjoyed your visit to the “Most Powerful City of the World – Washington DC”.

Sincerely,
FABA
