So much more goes into the selection of a university than just basketball. Here is a list of benefits that our athletes will receive for participating in the HBL.
Earn a salary (approximately $50,000-150,000 per season).ª
Participate in workshops and seminars on topics such as: financial literacy, insurance policies, and more.
The opportunity to sign individual endorsement agreements and to monetize social media accounts while playing college athletics.
Group licensing opportunities through the HBL and its corporate partners.ª
Receive a five-year scholarship (need-based, academic, and athletic-style scholarships will be available).
With the HBL games being played in the summer, the athletes will not miss class for weeks at a time (which puts them at an academic disadvantage in comparison to their non-athlete peers).
The ability to sign with an agent without jeopardizing eligibility.
Visibility with professional scouts and fans through the HBL streaming/broadcast agreement and the HBL app.
Cutting edge, high performance training and nutritional programming.
Better preparation for the NBA by playing NBA-style rules (four 12-minute quarters, NBA three-point line, 24-second shot clock, etc.).
Opportunity to participate in the HBL’s annual Winter International All-Star Tour, which will allow our players to play in Europe and Asia.
Opportunity to participate in the Preseason Combine and Tournament, to be played in the Caribbean.
