We are not promising you these contracts, just a fair shot at getting some exposure and possibly getting one! That is all most players want-a fair shot! For the past decade, we have been the leaders in taking under appreciated or under recognized players directly to Europe for exposure for professional contracts!
The best way you can find out if you are good enough is to play pros in their countries, in their gyms in front of their coaches and fans! If you really want a fair chance, then let us Take You To The Action!
One of the best ways to find out if we may be able to help you is to hear from other players who we have helped achieve their dream! Click HERE to hear from last years tour to see what our players have to say! We want you to be one of these success stories next year!

Life Lessons: Ryan Kilmartin
For Ryan Kilmartin, the chance to walk on to the Tennessee basketball team was a dream come true. After spending a year at Appalachian State, the Charlotte, N.C., native never dreamed he'd be at a high-major Division I program.
But rewind a few years and that feeling gets magnified..
Beach Ball is in Alex Kilmartin's Future
Charlotte Catholic High School Senior, Alex Kilmatin, has accepted an offer to play NCAA Division 1 basketball from UNC Wilmington. The 6'7" senior has been very excited to begin his college playing career for coach Buzz Peterson and his staff at UNCW.
USA Select Basketball was formed to assist American basketball players find professional opportunities internationally. The origins of USA Select Basketball trace back to the 1980s where Appalachian State University teammates; Sean Kilmartin and David Lawrence played professionally in Europe. Acknowledging then, the fantastic opportunity afforded them, they decided to create this type of opportunity for other athletes. With the assistance of Nicholas Melissaris and Mike Palladino, retired international basketball players, the team creates unique opportunities for elite basketball players.
USA Select Basketball is composed of athletes that have completed their college / NCAA eligibility and are looking for professional contracts internationally. Through a series of "tryout" camps, we carefully evaluate players from all backgrounds. We take them on tour to play some of the top teams in Europe in a series of exhibition games in hopes to create contract opportunities. In the past, these tours have proven to be highly successful and have allowed may players to get their first professional basketball contracts!
These players have come from varied programs such as perennial power Duke University, UConn and Wake Forest, top programs like Georgia, NC State, Xavier, Clemson, University of Tennessee and Temple University to Mid majors like Appalachian State University, Davidson College, James Madison University, Winston-Salem State University and NC Central University. Smaller programs such as Belmont Abbey College, Virginia Union, NC Weslyan to Junior Colleges and basketball players that have not had the opportunity to play college at the level.
