PICTURED: Sturt's U18 Div 1 men winning yet another State Championship. 8 athletes from this Sturt team pictured will be on Sturt's Exposure Tour to the United States this July.
This article is about a tour that the club I'm currently involved with (Sturt Sabres) has undertaken for its athletes. This kind of tour, that is going to be on the AAU circuit, to maximise exposure and opportunities for athletes, is quite historic for Sturt and Basketball in South Australia. Packed with players from one of the top club boys teams of all time out of South Australia, this team will showcase the Sturt style of game, which happens to be closely inline with the Basketball Australia (Australian Boomers) style of play.
This is a great read for US College coaches at all levels wanting to learn more about this tour, Sturt Sabres, the college prospects on this tour, our style of play and team culture that is developing athletes that are being very sought after in the US College system.
It is also a great read for young athletes and their families thinking about various pathways in Australia and beyond, there are some great examples of role models on this tour for younger kids coming through to aspire to follow.
