    WNBA, NBA, FIBA to Host Second All-Female Basketball Without Borders Camp for Top Int’l Prospects as Part of AT&T WNBA All-Star 2024

    Approximately 40 of the most promising young female basketball players from 24 nations will receive instruction from seasoned WNBA and FIBA athletes and coaches before attending the 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game.


    The Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) jointly announced that approximately 40 of the most promising high school-aged female basketball prospects from 24 countries outside the United States will be participating in the second Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Global girls camp in Phoenix, Arizona. This prestigious event, scheduled to take place from Friday, July 19 to Sunday, July 21, will be held at the Verizon 5G Performance Center, the official training facility of the Phoenix Suns. The camp forms part of the AT&T WNBA All-Star 2024 festivities.

    The campers will receive coaching from several former WNBA and FIBA players and coaches, including Edniesha Curry, Shey Peddy, April Sykes, and Kelly Raimon (Schumacher), who are all participants in the WNBA Coaches Development Program. The camp director will be Allison Feaster, a former WNBA player and current Vice President of Team Operations and Organizational Growth for the Boston Celtics.

    The players and coaches will guide the campers through various activities, including anthropometric and athletic testing, movement efficiency, skill development stations, shooting and skills competitions, life skills seminars, and 5-on-5 games. A ceremony on the final day of the camp will recognize the Kim Bohuny Camp MVP, the Patrick Baumann Sportsmanship Award, the Three-Point Champion, and the Defensive MVP honors to the campers who excel on the court and as leaders. The campers will also attend the 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game at Footprint Center on Saturday, July 20.

    The event will receive support from Nike, a worldwide partner of BWB since 2002. Nike will provide participants with their apparel and footwear, while Gatorade will ensure that players and coaches remain hydrated throughout the camp.


    The global basketball development and community outreach program, BWB, a joint initiative of the NBA and FIBA, has successfully engaged over 4,400 participants from 142 countries and territories since its inception in 2001. Notably, 127 former campers have advanced to the NBA or WNBA, showcasing the program's remarkable success in nurturing basketball talent. BWB has organized 75 camps in 50 cities across 33 countries on six continents, providing aspiring basketball players with exceptional training and development opportunities. 

    Among the notable WNBA players who participated in BWB camps are Ezi Magbegor (Seattle Storm; Australia; BWB Asia 2016), Jade Melbourne (Washington Mystics; Australia; BWB Global 2020), Aaliyah Edwards (Washington Mystics; Canada; BWB Global 2019), Nika Muhl (Seattle Storm; Croatia; BWB Europe 2018 & BWB Global 2019), and Kamilla Cardoso (Chicago Sky; Brazil; BWB Global 2019).
