The AUBD Squad is the most successful player development program in Australia

About AUBD Squad

As the most successful private basketball training organisation in Australia, we understand basketball today.  We acknowledge that Australian training methods need to evolve to meet international standards.  AUBD’s Squad Training Program represents our response to this ever changing industry, with a focus on developing younger juniors at the highest international standards.

What is the AUBD Squad?

The AUBD Squad is a high intensity training program that focuses on developing individual skill specifically ball handling, shooting, defense, passing and overall basketball IQ. AUBD is also a big believer in peak, physical conditioning so there is consistent fitness theme and a great deal of running incorporated into the program.

Our existing members are very passionate about the game and their development. They are generally very driven and highly motivated young men that are looking to be challenged in a structured environment.

AUBD expects new members coming into the program to have a certain level of skill deficiency and / or not be as proficient  as current members. AUBD’s methods and style of play are not readily taught in Australia.  As long as players can are willing to be challenged and are passionate about the game they will be fine in the program.

Without AUBD, I don’t know where I’d be today. I’ve known since joining the program I had the right people in my corner who wanted the best for me. They gave me all the right tools and knowledge necessary to reach my goals and be anyone I wanted to be. It hasn’t been all about basketball either. More so about making me a better person and preparing me for the real world despite the avenue I took.

AUBD was one of the best things to happen to my life. It taught me as a late teen, early adult the discipline needed to excel in every aspect of the game”. MAN 10 years ago thats crazy, Just wanna say thank you as well for what yourself and father did for me!

Because of the AUBD Academy I was able to get to the US, study, and then realise what I wanted to do with my life. After AUBD I’ve noticed that a lot of the lessons that were taught there can also be applied in real life, the whole aspect of working hard when no one is watching you particularly stands out to me. I’ve always looked back on my time at AUBD with fondness because of the passion and joy that everyone brought every single morning.

When i joined AUBD in 8th grade, it proved to be the defining point of my basketball career, transitioning my game from a raw, scrappy athletic one, to disciplined, high level one where I could now play above the rim. AUBD directly led to the opportunity in receiving a private school scholarship, where I would be exposed to further high level basketball, which in turn facilitated the opportunity to pursue a university scholarship; one which I am currently about to start my junior year of. I owe all elite aspects of my game to AUBD, and without it, there’s no question I would be somewhere other than enjoying a college basketball life right now.

Furthermore, the college (or American) style of coaching at AUBD – with emphasis on dicipline, conditioning and coachability, prepared me for the rigors of college level coaching.
