·1 min read

Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 head coach Aldin Ayo has stepped down from his post to tend to his ailing mother.

Difficult as it was to step away from the squad he helped groom over the last last few years, Ayo said he has to prioritize his mother who has been diagnosed with stage four cancer.

"It was a tough decision to leave Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas but I need to be on my mom's side in the battle that she is facing," said Ayo about his 69-year-old mom.

"I’m very grateful to Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. and Boss Ronald Mascariñas for giving me the opportunity to train and coach the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 National Team and to represent the country through the sport we love most. I’m forever grateful."

Under Ayo's watch, he led the Chooks team to new heights, capped by winning the 2022 Chooks-to-Go FIBA 3x3 Super Quest—the country's first title in the pro circuit since 2014.

"We are thankful for the service of Coach Aldin Ayo not just to our teams but also to our organization. He brought a lot of changes to the way our team was run," said Mascariñas.

"Coach Aldin will always be family to us and we will be here for him and his family in these trying times."

Chico Lanete will be the interim head coach of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 in the meantime.
