player pathway

Participation in the NBA Basketball School program in Dubai presents a clear pathway for an elite player to reach their basketball dreams. The NBA Basketball School Pathway has been developed to help players, parents, coaches, and organizations better understand the process of improvement. A player that develops in our program can advance to the NBA’s Academy program, attend Elite Level NBA Prospect Camps, be selected to attend a United States Prep School, and can be seen by college coaches from the United States on our US Tour.

Our NBA Basketball School Staff regularly meets with families in our program to design a distinct success plan for their child. With the incredible resources of the world’s best basketball organization, the NBA Basketball School in Dubai is clearly the choice for serious players that want an organized framework around their development.

Exposure Tour
of the United States

A big part of our pathway program lies in our Exposure Tour of the United States each summer. Players travel to the US to play against the countries top competition in front of NCAA coaches. The trip also includes tour’s of colleges, as well as enjoyable sites and attractions. A key element of our NBA Basketball School program – the 10 day trip allows top players from our program that chance to really learn and grow as players. Boys and Girls teams at the U12, U14, U16, and U19 are included in the trip. Players must be full time members of our NBA Basketball School to be included.

2023 US Tour

The NBA’s trip this summer will be held from July 1-10, 2023 in Los Angeles, Ca. This tour will present our players with a unique opportunity to experience playing against top US competition, tours of Los Angeles area universities, as well as enjoyable attractions such as Disneyland and the famous beaches of Los Angeles.

Players must be at the All -Star or MVP level to be considered for the trip. Tryouts will be held for each team this fall.
