BIP started running Men’s Exposure Tours in 1996, while this is the 15th Annual Women’s Exposure Tour. Most players are 21-23 years old and from the USA, where the federation’s release fee is a simple USD$500. Players are college graduates in most cases, with 4 years of experience playing at the university level.
Some players are returning veterans looking for a better job, but most are looking for their first “professional” contract after growing up in the USA where there is no Pro League. Players of all levels are available, so for teams in lower leagues with low or “non-professional” budgets, there can be a solution in this group of young and hungry athletes.
Women: August 8-17 at DRAS Center in Maribor, Slovenia
Men: August 12-21 at DRAS Center in Maribor, Slovenia
