Aussie Elite is an Australian AAU basketball club based in Melbourne (Victoria). With many of its players coming from the south east region of Victoria, Aussie Elite is a great representation of some of Melbourne’s & Australia’s emerging high school Junior & Senior (Year 11 & 12) talent.
The aim of Aussie Elite is to provide opportunities for aspiring Australian-based players to reach their goal of becoming student-athletes in the US NCAA college basketball system. Aussie Elite does this by putting these aspiring student-athletes in direct line of sight of 80% of all major NCAA D1, D2, D3; NAIA; and Junior college coaches who are actively recruiting for their respective basketball programs at events & tournaments Aussie Elite participate in.

Led by experienced and qualified coaches & team officials, Aussie Elite’s ethos is to deliver a cost-effective AAU experience that is underpinned by High Performance best-practice; a professional approach to athlete welfare; and Aussie Elite’s connectivity to the appropriate level of collegiate coaches who are recruiting the type of the athlete Aussie Elite has on its roster.
As an initiative of Frankston Basketball, Aussie Elite is independent of any junior representative VJBL program. Teams are selected via an initial expression of interest which is released in late October each year. From this, teams are selected based on high school graduation year and playing experience.
With Aussie Elite entering its third year of sending teams to the states, a number of alumni have fulfilled their goal and accepted student-athlete scholarships. Click here to read further about Aussie Elite abroad.
