Aspire Sports Management Invitationals
INTERACTIVE GLOBAL MAP
Aspire Invitationals are presented by Aspire Sports management (ASM). Each invitational is located in a host country ( with knowledge and support of the host countries' FIBA Federation ) and has the majority, if not all, of the host countries' teams that accept import players participating in the invitational.
Each team ( usually the head coach or General Manager ) selects and invites the players that they are interested in signing to a contract to the invitational. Only screened and selected players will be invited.
Each Invitational consist of several games played against top teams from the host country and in most cases against the National; Team of the host country. This is followed by a workout day between the players and the coaches. Contracts are then offered to the players after the coaches make their final decisions on the players they want to sign for the upcoming season.
Each Invitational also involves many coaches and General Managers from several surrounding countries in the host countries' region. In most cases, Aspire Invitationals consist of teams from six other countries. This ensures maximum exposure for the players and allows coaches to see players they did not invite in order to find the best talent level for their teams.
Before the Aspire Invitationals were established, many teams offered players contracts with a "probation period" . The team would provide an airline ticket for the player to come ( usually during pre season ) and play for the team. After the probation period, the team would either agre to keep the player for the season or send the player home.
Aspire Invitationals are a "win - win" situation for players and teams. The teams do not have to pay for the players airline tickets to see them to make a decision to keep the player, and the player does not have to experience being sent home after being offered a contract and having to explain this to the next potential team the player attempts to play for.
