BRING YOUR GAME TO SAN ANTONIO.
The Basketball Embassy is pleased to present Assembly 2019, our fifth annual week-long convocation of select basketball players and coaches from across the world. Join us June 9-16, 2019 at Our Lady of the Lake University and Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.
For the fifth consecutive summer—and our first as part of the San Antonio Spurs Sports Academy’s series of Summer Camps—we'll once again be challenging international and American male and female players to reach their greatest potential, on and off the basketball court. Campers will receive training and instruction in both individual and team settings, in addition to strength and conditioning components integral to their success. The entire experience will not only help them improve as players, but also as human beings interacting in what continues to become a smaller, more connected global community. Assembly 2019 will create an environment conducive to a first class cultural exchange intertwined with the game that brings us all together.
Assembly 2019 is an invite-only camp open to both male and female players. For international players, we are targeting those born 2002, 2003 and 2004 (exceptions for '01 and '05-born players are possible pending approval). For Americans, we seek varsity-level players (with some exceptions for JV or freshman players if space is available).
What to expect
Each day, campers will attend sessions consisting of on-court practices, sport-specific training sessions, and other conditioning activities - all led by our staff specialists in these respective fields. Due to the rigorous nature of these sessions, Assembly 2019 is not intended for beginners or players with minimal experience. The camp will also include competitive matches against local teams here in San Antonio.
Who will be attending
The Basketball Embassy is proud to provide an environment that not only allows the exchange of basketball knowledge and passion, but a sharing of cultures representing several continents. Male and female players (in separate sessions) will be instructed at Assembly 2019 in both team and individual settings by coaches from all over the world. Eligible NCAA, NAIA, and junior college coaches will also be in attendance throughout the week to observe and meet the players. This is a great opportunity for anyone considering playing basketball at an American University.
Assembly 2019 is proud to offer a first class basketball camp with high quality facilities, trainers, and coaches. In accordance with our mission statement, The Basketball Embassy strongly encourages all players local and abroad to stay overnight to truly experience the melting pot of cultures. However, we offer a second price option for local players who wish to commute.
The camp fee for all players staying on campus for the entirety of the week is $825 USD. This can be paid in full, or a non-refundable $200 USD deposit can be made to reserve a spot, with the remainder due before the camp begins on June 9, 2019. The $825 registration includes:
Approximately 36 hours of basketball instruction and sport-specific workouts
