WHAT IS THE AUSA HOOPS YOUTH DEVELOPMENT TOUR?

Twice a year AUSA Hoops takes over Aussie players who are chasing college basketball scholarships to play in the most important college recruiting events in the US, AAU tournaments.

These tournaments are ideal players who are in Year 11 or 12.

Over the years we have noticed many of our players are going over to the tournaments under-prepared, unaware of the competition level and not ready to compete at the level needed to earn a college scholarship.

At such a late stage in their development, we are unable to help these players develop their basketball skills after such a challenging experience.

Our Youth Development Tour is designed to give players exposure to the American basketball culture, to open their eyes to how competitive it is to get a college basketball scholarship, and to teach the importance of the work ethic that is required to achieve your dreams. With the goal of preparing to be ready to play AAU tournaments in the future.

We go behind the scenes of college programs, play against US high schools and have experiences designed to help players figure out if college basketball is a goal they want to pursue.

It is a trip that is focused on development - we don't go to Disneyland.

AUSA SUCCESS STORIES & ALUMNI

WHY AAU?

AAU is the testing ground for all US high school basketball players.

It is similar to the Australian club system but is a series of tournaments rather than an extended season.

Our teams play in NCAA certified tournaments designed specifically for college coaches to scout high school players.

At the tournaments AUSA teams play at, there could be anywhere from 100 to 1,500 college coaches scouting for players.

Watch this documentary trailer to get a glimpse into what AAU is and why it is so important.

 If you find another program with an alumi list like this, you should play for them.


Many families sign their child up to play in tournaments; believing that just because their child is travelling to the US to play; that they will be seen by coaches, this is simply not the case.

AUSA Hoops have the experience and knowledge among their administration and coaches to ensure not only that their teams will be showcased at tournaments that matter but also provide honest and realistic feedback about your expectations.

The staff went above and beyond what we would have expected. The attention to detail that AUSA demonstrates during the planning of their tours is second to none.

We are extremely grateful to AUSA Hoops for the work that they have done for our family

JENELLE & PERO CAMERON

Parents of Tobais

I am sure you guys have been told this many times but what you do is truly great, how you do it is equally impressive. The environment that you surround these kids in is something that will never be found where we come from. From a family that is in awe of your commitment to kids that want to achieve, we are definitely thankful for being given the opportunity to have our son in your care over the past couple of months. 

He has come a long way since he first went down to Sydney and we saw an amazing amount of growth in his maturity when he arrived home recently.

DEANNE PARSLOW

Mother of Harry

Thank you again for your relentless pursuit in finding Noah this incredible opportunity for which we will be eternally grateful.

We wouldn't be here without your help, your connections and and the sacrifices to help him attend three trips with AUSA.

I couldn't be more proud of him.
