ABOUT

The Worldwide Invitational is an opportunity for players to showcase their skills before our camp's head coaches from Germany, French, Belgium, Poland & Italy.  In addition to playing for our coaches, the players will also have the opportunity to be scouted by the general managers and coaches from all the top leagues in America, Europe, & Asia that will also be in attendance at our event. Las Vegas, and the site of the event, UNLV, is the centerpiece to the NBA and professional basketball's summer free agency signing period. The Worldwide Invitational will be located at the UNLV Student Recreation Center, July 11-13.

They must have completed their NCAA or NAIA eligibility or are looking to forego their college eligibility to become a professional basketball player.  Having an agent is not required, but players must have competed in the NCAA, NAIA, or professionally within the last two years.

Registered players that are selected in our Live Draft will travel to Las Vegas with the hopes they can impress the coaches that will be coaching our camp's eight (8) teams as well as any of the other coaches from the top-tier men's professional leagues that will be in attendance. 

Teams will consist of a maximum of nine (9) players.  The participants will be drafted by our coaches from the list of players who register for their participation in the draft pool.  Games will be played in four (4) ten (10) minute quarters. Each team will play three (3) games with the two top teams in the tournament playing in a 4th game in the Championship Final on July 13th.
