The BHSSC Basketball Program has completed a tour to the USA every two years since 2004. Interest and participation in the tours has grown steadily so that 4 basketball teams (approximately 40 students) are usually selected to compete against USA high school basketball teams. Selection priority is given to students in years 11 and 12.
The tour provides an amazing opportunity to combine basketball, travel and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. It takes place in November/December after all exams have been completed. For students interested in attaining an athletic scholarship to a USA College it is an opportunity to perform before College scouts who attend some of the games.
The 2018 USA tour included the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Diego. A highlight of this tour involved students attending a Philadelphia 76 er's home game and seeing Ben Simmons in action and touring the Philadephia 76 er's headquarters and training facilities.
