Pro Placement Program

Pro Placement Program

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.

Player has to reach certain professional standards regarding minimum basketball skill and physical abilities required by professional leagues in Europe.

Upon arrival, each player will be tested and evaluated by qualified European basketball coaching experts. Players 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 main competitive advantage of our Pro Placement Program compared to similar commercial events is that we accept maximum 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.
