Professional basketball clubs in the Vietnam Basketball Association (VBA) stayed busy in the final month of 2021 with various plans including preparing for the national championship, drafting cooperation strategies, and celebrating anniversaries.

10th anniversary

Saigon Heat, the first professional basketball club in Vietnam, was quite busy with celebrating their 10th year anniversary.

The team’s journey over the past decade was turned into a set of documents that allowed fans to better understand the difficulties and challenges the players had faced to achieve success.

There were many untold stories that took place when the team was founded as well as when the players represented Vietnamese basketball in the international arena during their participation in the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL).

The documents also highlighted Saigon Heat’s achievements, including winning the VBA championship title in 2019 and 2020, as well as its contribution to the Vietnamese basketball team’s bronze medals at the 30th SEA Games in 2019.

National tournament

The national 3x3 U23 basketball championship was hosted by south-central Khanh Hoa Province from December 10 to 13, providing an opportunity for basketball clubs to let their young players gain more experience.

Hanoi Buffaloes sent to the competition Thai Ha, Quang Anh, Minh Hieu, Van Thang, and Viet Hoang.

Aside from Thai Ha, the remaining four are among the generation of young players on the team.

Danang Dragons and Nha Trang Dolphins selected Ngoc Khanh, Quoc Truong, Tuan Anh, Minh Hieu, Phuoc Thinh, and Hoai Bao to represent the teams in the league.

Meanwhile, Cantho Catfish sent Nguyen Van Vinh and Tran Dinh Huy, who are both 22 years old.

Strategic cooperation

Thang Long Warriors recently announced on its official Facebook page the signing of a cooperation agreement to develop youth training programs with the American Edu-Sports Academy (ASA).

The basketball club will kick off this cooperation with a special event to recruit young talents.

ASA provides training courses on basketball and soft skills to learners aged six to 18.

In Hanoi, ASA has organized such amateur tournaments as the ASA League, ASA Super League, and ASA Super Kids.

Captain of Thang Long Warriors Dang Thai Hung currently works as a coach at ASA.
