Welcome to the NBA Basketball School in Turkey!
The NBA is proud to offer 3 Sessions of NBA Basketball School in Izmir, Turkey. The program is geared for players that are interested in basketball and have a desire to improve. Below is a general guideline for parents and players regarding our program.
|Boys Teams Offered:||Girls Teams Offered:|
There are two teams offered per age group: Advanced and Fundamental. Players will be placed at their appropriate level by the NBA School Technical Director. Each team program features weekly practices and match play; with the schedule varying slightly by season. Our goal is to provide your child with a ‘best in class’ developmental experience. Players are able to tryout to “play up” a level with prior approval from technical director.
Fall/Winter, Spring, and Summer NBA School Sessions:
In an effort to create the most dynamic program possible for your child, we offer 4 seasons of our Super Skills Elite Team Program each year. They are:
• Fall/Winter Session: September – February (23 weeks)
• Spring Session: March – May (12 weeks)
• Summer Session: June – July (8 weeks)
Fall/Winter Season (23 week program), Spring Season (12 week program), Summer Season (8 week program)
The fee’s paid for participation in our NBA School Program are non-refundable once a player has been placed on a team.
This fee covers:
• Weekly practices and matches
• Coaching fees, transportation and stipends
• Gym rental fees
• Team supplies
• Player insurance
• Player notebook and handouts
• Tournament and league registrations
• Team training equipment (Balls, Bags, Carts) and medical supplies
• Program administration
Additional One-Time Kit Fee: This fee includes a Uniform, NBA School T-Shirt and Player Notebook. These are one-time fees and only applicable for new players or if the player needs these items.
Weekly Practice Sessions: Each team practices twice per week. In an effort to make things as simple as possible, we have tried to develop a consistency about our practice times. Detailed practice times are listed on the right. Each NBA School practice is a highly organized skill development session. We plan every drill down to the basic details, with 95% of each practice focused on skill development. This is not a ‘throw the balls out and let them scrimmage’ for 2 hours type program. We find that a talented player that has been trained specifically over an extended amount of time and is fundamentally sound has a serious advantage over another player.

• Detailed Character Building
• Dynamic Warm-up and Stretch
