Nine top players from Season 1 were taken to the USA for a training camp where they trained among present and former NBA stars. “The players were trained just as pro athletes train in the US, every day with very little time off.  The first week they struggled, but in the second week, their strength and ability saw significant increases.  We know with continued programs, the players can reach elite levels,” says Jody Basye, US Coaching Sr. Manager. A documentary titled ‘Inside the UBA’ on the rigorous training camp and the life of these to be stars was filmed and airing on Ten Sports Network channels.
