Over the past 15 years AUBD is the only Australian organisation to consistently compete in major tournaments throughout the USA….. with great results! Despite the limited pool of athletes we draw from for our international basketball tours we have maintained a high level of performance which is revered throughout the USA. With such a strong presence in the USA we are able to access entry into premier tournaments, colleges, NBA events and all things related to basketball.
AUBD has won 12 international junior titles to date. In 2017, the AUBD 13U team became the first and only All Australian team ever to win a major Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Championship by winning the West Coast Grade Based Championships in Las Vegas.
