Aussie Basketball USA Pathways is undoubtedly the number one program in assisting Australian girls in realising their dreams of playing NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball. The brainchild of former NCAA Division I player and Coach Sam Tomlinson, the program has helped send more than enough players, including numerous junior national team representatives, to various Division I programs including Duke, Tennessee, and Clemson among others just of late.
Having won gold with the Australian junior national team at the 1993 World Championship before carving out a career both in the Australian WNBL and Europe and WNBA training camp Tomlinson has first-hand knowledge of the opportunities that basketball can present for players as well as what it takes to reach the elite level in the sport. Combined with her passion for player development, Tomlinson is able to give each player the opportunity to put themselves in the best position to land at a high-level program that will give them the best chance to succeed both in the short and long-term.
With a wealth of experience in both Australia and the United States, Tomlinson has a proven track record of assisting players in finding their way to the ideal college setting, creating mutually beneficial relationships for the players, coaches, and programs, helping to develop long-term connections between programs and Australian basketball.
