MUMBAI: The national tryout of the 2022 edition of ACG-NBA Jump, India’s first national basketball scouting program that provides aspiring basketball players from across the country with a platform to compete alongside one another, showcase their skills and receive additional basketball development opportunities, will take place from July 14-16 at Jaypee Greens, Noida. Spread over three days, the camp will bring together 30 of India’s most promising young players competing for full scholarships to attend NBA Academy India, an elite basketball training center for the top prospects from throughout the country.

The program, which tipped off on May 21, 2022, at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Delhi, visited six cities across India – Delhi, Kottayam, Ludhiana, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai – and saw participation from more than 1600 players. As part of the NBA and ACG’s commitment to grow basketball in India, the program provides basketball players from around the country an opportunity to develop their skills under the guidance of NBA-certified coaches.

ACG-NBA Jump first launched in 2015. Palpreet Singh, the top prospect from program’s inaugural edition, attended the 2016 NBA G League National Tryout in the United States and was subsequently drafted by the Long Island Nets in the 2016 NBA G League Draft. NBA Academy India, which is also supported by ACG, opened in 2017 and has seen multiple players earn scholarships to prep schools and junior colleges in the U.S or sign professional contracts, including Princepal Singh, who became the first NBA Academy India player to sign with the NBA G League and first player from India to win an NBA Summer League Championship.
