HA NOI — Sun Life Vietnam Insurance Company collaborated with the Saigon Heat to carry out a series of High Hoop basketball festivals, providing training support for children from the ages of eight to 13 years old in Hà Nội.

With many training practices and fun activities with basketball, children will improve their basketball skills and have an opportunity to interact with coaches and well-known professional basketball players and discover the secrets to reach for a brighter future.

The High Hoop Basketball Festival will inspire a passion for sports and a healthy lifestyle for children from an early age, promising to bring families an exciting and meaningful weekend. Participating in the festival, the kids will have the opportunity to learn skills, play basketball, and be trained by excellent coaches and players of the Saigon Heat – the VBA championship basketball team for four consecutive years. The event also promises many unique activities with exciting games and learning during the day of the event in each locality.

Previously, the festival also took place with many interesting activities in HCM City, Đà Nẵng and Vinh with the participation of nearly 600, 400, and 300 students, respectively.

For basketball teaching support classes, the organising committee will coordinate with basketball academies in HCM City, Đà Nẵng, Vinh and Hà Nội to select 20 students from each class in each locality who have the dream of pursuing basketball to foster and provide additional skills and tactics in competition.

“Basketball not only helps children practice their skills but also helps them build confidence and team spirit. With all these benefits, we continue to cooperate with the Saigon Heat team to nurture a passion for basketball and inspire young people to live healthy, active lives from an early age. We firmly believe that engaging in basketball activities is not merely a superficial gesture towards the community, but rather a profound commitment to shaping a brighter future,” said Lục Nhơn Lý, Chief Executive Officer of Sun Life Vietnam.

From 2018 to now, Sun Life Vietnam has participated in donating 442 basketball hoops and 2,210 basketballs to 255 schools in localities across the country. Recently, Sun Life Vietnam has also cooperated with the Saigon Heat as part of its commitment to developing sports talents in the sustainable development journey of physical and mental health for the community and Sun Life Vietnam’s Clients.
