Son of Panama star David Peralta from the national team in the 1960s and 1970s, Jair Peralta spent four years in college in the United States before turning professional. A true point guard, he relies on his quickness at both ends of the court. Although Peralta's not known as a scorer, the short playmaker can be surprising on some nights, helped significantly by his three-point shot. On August 30th 2005, he was instrumental in a crucial win over eventual finalist Argentina at the FIBA Americas championship.

Peralta scored six points in the final 1 minute 25 seconds, ending up with 24 points. After a 1-3 start, Panama would capitalize on this win and eventually qualify for the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Japan.
