The Elite Team is HKBA's highest-level program for boys, which is comprised of the top youth players from the HKBA-Premier League. Team players continue to develop through skills training, practices, scrimmages, competing in local Hong Kong leagues, and traveling to compete in the Singapore Invitational alongside the top teams in Asia.
We aim to provide a platform for high-achieving student-athletes to further develop their character through competing at the highest level of youth basketball in Asia, be supported by a sense of team brotherhood, and gain a positive life experience through the wonderful game of basketball.
The team is led by dedicated and experienced HKBA-Premier League coaches who choose team members through a multi-stage tryout process, selecting players who are highly skilled, showcase commitment to supporting a team, and exemplify a high level of character, both on and off the court.
The requirement to be eligible for tryouts is based on participation and commitment showcased in the fall season of the HKBA-Premier League. No exceptions will be made.
Ten players will be selected by coaches for each Elite Team age division, i.e., 14U, 16U, and 19U.
This is a pay-for-program for those who are financially able. HKBA's scholarship program is ready in support of team members who apply for financial assistance to participate. No judgement, all love. For families who wish to contribute to the scholarship program, kindly contact us.
