Basketball is the sport of choice for many Filipinos. In the Philippines, the lack of actual basketball courts was never a hindrance for the young and old players. Enthusiasts improvise on the streets and any available parking spaces.

Here in Winnipeg, where we enjoy actual hard courts and the coaching of many professionals, players have the best tools to achieve their goals.

One such player is Shawn Maranan. From playing with cousins at a young age to being a top player for the University of Winnipeg’s Wesmen, Shawn has now been drafted into the Winnipeg Sea Bears of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL). He is living his childhood dream of playing pro.
