Past ESL camps have helped produce 256 contracts in 65 different countries across the globe including 12 G-League and 1 NBA contract. This year, ESL has teamed up with agents from across the globe to send players to the best exposure camp in international basketball. Agents from 26 different countries, including 42 from the United States, all offered players to the camps that run July 6-8 and July 10-12.

The camps will be coached by current and former professional coaches from across the globe that will be lending their time and knowledge to these players.
