There are very few basketball exposure camps that we, at NetScouts Basketball, are willing to endorse. Our friend Justin Haynes has an excellent camp taking place in Las Vegas July 13-15 that will give players an honest chance of being picked up by an international team. Coaches from teams in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Belgium and Italy will coach and draft teams from the registered players. If you were a NCAA Division 1 player and are looking to play overseas or get a better deal overseas this is the best camp for you. Registration is closing tomorrow so please read below and consider attending his camp.
The Worldwide Invitational player draft pool will close for new registrations on Monday, June 30th at 8:30pm US EST. Our 8 coaches will then draft 64 players at 11:30pm US EST on June 30th and here are the names of the coaches on our staff: Stefano Cioppi (Victoria Libertas Pesaro – Italy-SerieA), Igor Perovic (Walter Tigers Tubingen – German BBL), Brian Lynch (Limburg United – Belgian Ehtias League),Joey Wright (Adelaide 36ers – Australian NBL), Aaron Fearne (Cairns Taipans – Australian NBL), Dean Vickerman (New Zealand Breakers – Australian NBL), Gordie McLeod (Wollongong Hawks – Australian NBL), and Liam Flynn (Nelson Giants – New Zealand NBL).
To be eligible for the 2014 Worldwide Invitational, all applicants must register on our website and submit a non-refundable $100 registration fee. There will be no additional costs to participate in the event (besides the player’s flight to Las Vegas) and the $100 registration fee covers the following for those that are selected: 2 nights stay at UNLV campus housing (July 13-15), 1 meal per day, and four (4) 40-minute games.
Our camp will take place at the UNLV SWRC which is 500 yards from the Cox Pavilion (Home of the NBA Summer League) and players are welcome to register as rookies (must be at least 20 years old and have completed their NCAA or NAIA eligibility) or veterans (provided they’ve played professionally in the last two seasons). Having an agent is not required and players of all nationalities are welcome to apply.
