ABOUT US 

Located just 47 miles east of Eugene, Oregon on 46 beautiful acres in the McKenzie River Valley, the USBA is a dream fulfilled.  From its inception in 1997 when Bruce O'Neil and his close friend, the late Wilt Chamberlin, sat on a tree stump with a vision; to today as an internationally recognized top end basketball training ground, the mission continues to unfold.
