Pro Placement Program
Want to maximize your value and start a professional career in Europe? Europe Basketball Academy is an excellent place to start. We are placing players in the best European leagues! Program intake for the next group of future professional men is on May 5th, 2023.
The program is recommended for players who are looking to play professional basketball - with or without professional experience in Europe. To be eligible for tryouts in the big leagues, a player must attend the Pro Placement Program where he will gain expert references from respected and recognized coaches.
Upon arrival, each player will be tested and evaluated by qualified European basketball coaching experts. The Player's current skill and shape level will be determined through specially crafted tests that measure: endurance, quickness, agility, strength, free-throw shooting, 2 point shooting, and 3 point shooting. The Player has to reach certain professional standards regarding minimum basketball skill and physical abilities required by professional leagues in Europe.
The principal competitive advantage of our Pro Placement Program compared to similar commercial events is that we accept a maximum of 20 players in our training camp, so our team of experts can perform all logistic activities on and off the court to provide every player with the best chances of signing a pro contract.
Our job openings list is regularly updated, and we are in contact with clubs, GM's, and coaches on a daily basis, informing them about profiles of players we currently have in our training camp.
The age limit for starting a professional career in big European leagues is 18.
Please note that we do not accept video material as proof of quality. We insist on preparing and evaluating the players ourselves, to be able to guarantee for them.
Arranging professional opportunities for players or advancing them in already started careers; establishing contact between players and respected European agents or agencies after players complete Pro Placement Program and reach needed pro standards for playing professional basketball in Europe.
