Are you a player who wants to play professional overseas but not sure how? Here is your opportunity. Or a Nothern European player who wants to play in a pro league in the South? or a student who wants to be part of the fastest growing academy system in Europe.
Barcelona basketball is the place to be!Not just a beautiful location, but a basketball hotbed in Europe.
ABN has partnered up with the Barcelona Basketball Academy and will be creating a residence training program in Barcelona beginning this August. More details will soon follow, but this much can be mentioned:
a. You will be responsible to pay your own round trip airfare as well as residency fees to the BBA. You must show a copy of your return ticket or onward destination. Smart players buy flexible tickets.
b. You will be responsible to show current medical insurance which covers you while playing basketball in Europe, and this insurance must be documented or you will not be allowed to complete.
c. You must demonstrate you have a player license in good standing from a previous club, or are a first year player attempting to play overseas.
This is not a free agent camp… do not be confused. This is not a showcase.
