Coach Connex

If you are serious about playing US College basketball, Coach Connex is for you.

Who is talking about you in College Basketball?

That’s right!! Is your name on any NCAA Coach’s lips? If not, then your dreams of playing may be finished before they started.

Being on the radar is one thing, but being in the recruiting conversation is completely another, and difficult too accomplish without someone who knows your game working on your behalf.

Coach Connex takes you out of the inboxes – where you are one among hundreds of other hopefuls, and puts you into the conversation. 

Watch the video to hear from AAU Australia’s Head of Recruiting, Coach Kevin Hamilton, Sr., to understand how he helps Coach Connex be the pathway you need to NCAA basketball.

Is Coach Connex For You?

Coach Connex is for serious ballers only who have a burning desire to play basketball at the highest level they can.

If you’re prepared to do the work, we have the connections and talent ID reputation to get you into the conversation. 

Coach Connex offers something no other program like this in Australia/NZ does: the direct access to all levels of college coaches and programs.

Not a few coaches, with a handful of spots. Not emails hoping someone will look at your highlight tape. 

Our name is respected by coaches. Coach Hamilton and his team’s solid recruiting reputation means head coaches take his calls…or call him back.

And when they call him back, they listen, they look at your film, and they will know your name. If your game has what it takes, you will be on the radar.

We don’t promise you a scholarship or even an offer. But we will get you out of a coach’s inbox and into the conversation. Your game will do the rest!

We don’t do this with a handful of schools. We do this with the NCAA, NAIA, and JUCOs across America.

You will be blown away by what we can do for you.

How do I Get Involved?

To start with, play AAU basketball in any one of our events, such as the upcoming AAU21 calendar.

Coach Hamilton and his team will be watching, looking for talent like you.

Secondly, get your game evaluated by Coach. The evaluation gives you a 360 degree view of your game, to help you know where you sit and what you can achieve.

If you are College ready right now, we will offer you a place in the Coach Connex program. If you need more work, we can help you, or direct you to good resources to assist.
