OFFICIAL RECRUITING SCOUTING EVENTS

SERVICE FOR ALL AUSTRALIAN ATHLETES

ABOUT US

The club based basketball infrastructure in Australia varies significantly from the school based basketball system in the United States of America (USA).  In the past it has been difficult for American coaches to navigate Australia’s basketball landscape to effectively recruit talented Australians.  Similarly, junior Australian Athletes have exhausted much time and money to navigate the American collegiate system.  Basketball Victoria International is is the safe and secure path between our countries.

Coaches are required to make recruitment decisions which is why it is critical to have accurate athlete reports.  AAB employs Australia’s Tier 1 Scouts.  Our Scouts are x-NBA / NBL Players and Coaches who are also nationally recognised as Tier 1 development coaches.  We have additional checks and balances in place to ensure that the data you receive is accurate so that you can effectively recruit.

WHY BV INTERNATIONAL?

College recruitment is certainly a long and winding road! As a family we feel incredibly fortunate to have partnered with Darren and Adrian to help guide us through the recruitment process. BAP genuinely connected with us, listened to what we hoped to find in a college program and got to know our son on a personal level to enable best outcomes. The was no sales pitch; our journey was based on honesty with a realistic approach. BAP supported us on all aspects of recruitment (on and off the court) and were there for us each step of the way. Ultimately, we locked in a full D1 scholarship that was aligned to all criteria on our original brief. Huge thanks to Adrian and Darren for all your work, care and expertise in this area. Job well done!

Words cannot explain how impressed I have been with the service that Basketball Australia Pathways gave us and how grateful I am. Our son’s single goal in life since the age of 10 was to play basketball in America. Initially he toured USA with another company, however even though there was plenty of interest on his return to Australia it all seemed to peter out. Friends recommended BA Pathways to us and we cannot have been more relieved. Initially after promoting our son, Adrian had contact from approx. 7 schools of which we had intended to tour. Covid hit along with travel restrictions and most of the schools decided to recruit nationally. However Adrian worked tirelessly and eventually our choice came down to 3 schools, one school in particular standing out. We committed to South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and is currently thriving in their coaching system. We can’t thank you enough!
