Formally known as the KAIAC Elite program, East Asia Elite (EAE) was started as a CTI initiative in 2007-08 to provide KAIAC (Korea) athletes with better basketball competition, training and experience. Players will have the opportunity to prepare for the next level of basketball. Players will have a chance to be recognized by college coaches in America as they become better players and athletes.
The Elite program also stresses the importance of maturity on and off the court. We stress the importance of teamwork and believes that the friendships that these players will gain will last a lifetime. CTI strives to promote strong morals and ethics to the players while also pushing the students to take on leadership roles that will help them in any area of their lives.
The EAE Program aims to achieve the CTI mission: "Encouraging athletes, coaches and nations worldwide to develop their body, mind and spirit."
