“How Does it Feel To Represent Your Country?”

See what our alumni have to say:

Those [NBA players] talking about their experiences… I always remember whether it was the conversations or words of advice that we all got at the camp. It helped me to stay true to myself.

Joel Embiid

Philadelphia 76ers

BWB Africa 2011

“Seeing the best players from every country come to BWB Global in Chicago was fun. Every kid’s dream is to play in the NBA and I got a preview of the players I will play against in the next couple years.”

Bennedict Mathurin

Indiana Pacers

BWB Americas 2019BWB Global 2020

The game allowed me to travel, see new countries, meet new people, play against talented guys that I’m not able to play against otherwise, and talk to coaches and former players that I looked up to growing up. So many different things that can come out of BWB…it’s only beneficial.

Frequently Asked Questions

BWB is an invite-only camp for elite players. Each camp is age-based, and players are selected by the NBA, FIBA and participating national federations based on their performance and demonstrated leadership abilities.
Each BWB cycle consists of four regional BWB camps – one in each of Africa, Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region. These camps typically are held between May and September of each year. The final camp of a BWB cycle is BWB Global, which is held in association with NBA All-Star Weekend in February.
BWB Global – launched in 2015 – is the culmination of a BWB season. 64 of the top male and female international prospects convene in the same city as NBA All-Star Weekend for a three-day camp. In addition to the development and exposure opportunity, camp participants get to attend some of the NBA All-Star Weekend nightly events.
Basketball Without Borders has three primary objectives: (1) Elite basketball instruction and development opportunities to maximize the potential of international talent; (2) Elevate the level of basketball in each region where the camp is hosted; and (3) Provide NBA, WNBA and FIBA players, coaches and team executives an opportunity to serve as global ambassadors through the game of basketball
BWB aims to raise the overall level of basketball in each market that serves as a host. In collaboration with FIBA, NBA/WNBA coaches lead a clinic that is open for all local coaches to observe. Additionally, the NBA and FIBA work with local federations and leagues to nominate several coaches to work alongside the NBA coaches and players throughout the camp as a development opportunity. Lastly, former NBA and FIBA referees lead daily development sessions with federation-nominated local referees, which includes classroom sessions, film review and on-court instruction.
