Basketball on the Rise

There’s no denying the fact that Filipinos everywhere love basketball. And we’re not just talking about on a professional level; kids and adults alike can be found testing their skills in Baranggay courts all over the country in pickup games or community tournaments. Great talent in Basketball can be found in any corner of the country, often going undiscovered.

This belief is what lead Nike to come up with their new reality show, Rise! The show aims to uncover young street ballers with great potential and follow their progress till they make it professionally. Eligible participants are those who are lacking in resources to hone their skills or get discovered.
