College Recruitment for Australians

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 the safe and secure path between our countries.

American Collegiate System

Basic Overview of the American basketball hierarchy 

1 NCAA Div. 1
2 NCAA Div. 2
3 NCAA Div. 3
4 NAIA
5 JUCO
NCAA Div. 1

NCAA Division 1

There is a very high bar set for student-athletes who land roster spots on D1 basketball teams. Getting to the D1 level—and staying there—requires an extremely high level of dedication, passion for the sport and hard work. However, the rewards of competing at Division 1 basketball colleges is well worth the effort. Athletes who have the talent, physical attributes, drive, and academics will be rewarded with well-funded athletic facilities, experienced coaches to take their game to the next level, and even a chance at a partial or fully funded athletic scholarship offer. 

NCAA Division 1
NCAA Div. 2

NCAA Division 2

Student-athletes often consider D2 basketball programs to be “second best” to those at the Division 1 level. However, many of the top Division 2 basketball schools recruit based on similar recruiting guidelines, eligibility standards and recruiting rules as the Division 1 level. Competing at top Division 2 basketball schools is often just as intense and competitive as playing basketball at a D1 college.

NCAA Division 2
NCAA Div. 3

NCAA Division 3

Competing at the D3 level still requires a high level of athletic rigor, as well as excellent academic standing, as many of these schools operate at peak academic calibre. In addition to being competitive athletically and academically, D3 basketball colleges provide a more balanced approach to athletics and offer student-athletes the chance to have a well-rounded college experience, allowing them to focus on their coursework, join a club, study abroad and more.

NCAA Division 3
NAIA

National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics

In recent years, NAIA basketball schools have grown in size, and like the NCAA, NAIA basketball programs are highly competitive. NAIA programs are comparable athletically and academically to those at the NCAA Division 2 and 3 level. NAIA programs however don’t have to follow strict recruiting rules, allowing college coaches to reach out to student-athletes—and vice versa—at any point in their high-school basketball careers.

JUCO

Junior College (JUCO)

While junior colleges—often abbreviated as JUCO—are often overlooked in the athletic recruiting process, basketball players interested in competing at the college level are increasingly turning to junior colleges before moving on to four-year colleges. One of the main benefits of playing JUCO basketball is getting a sense of what college athletics are like. Some students may want to develop athletically or academically for a year or two before moving on to an NCAA or NAIA school. Likewise, for students who are undecided about their major or general course of study, it makes more sense from a financial standpoint to knock out some prerequisite courses for a fraction of the cost compared to a four-year private or public college.
