THE Filipino-American Basketball Association of Metropolitan DC, Inc., better known as “FABA of Metro DC” was established on September 2001 by a group of Filipino-American volunteers from all over the Washington Metropolitan DC area. FABA of MetroDC is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
FABA was organized to set basketball sport programs and activities for the purpose of establishing sportsmanship and development of youth, as well as adults, in the Filipino-American community of Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC; more specifically to promote the highest ideals of fellowship, athleticism and fair play by providing recreation, fun and competition through voluntary participation. It was also organized to provide education and training to young players on the fundamental aspects of basketball through basketball clinics and tournaments, and to conduct fundraising activities to support selected players in various ages, levels and skills to compete in basketball tournaments, both locally and nationally.
FABA of Metro DC, with the support of our main sponsors, Mr. Rolly and Mrs. Susan Santos, Mr. Marlon and Mrs. Sonia Deausen of Deausen Group and Mr. Gerry and Mrs. Paqui Llames of Radiant Printing were able to bring players from all ages to compete in the Filipino Basketball Association of North America Inter-City Tournament during Labor Day weekends and all other Tournaments (All-Filipino and Asian) in North America.
