The NBA Academy has announced an international women’s virtual program that will connect with more than 40 of the top female, high-school age prospects from outside the U.S.

Selected participants will take part in an eight-week basketball and leadership development program, allowing them to connect with their peers under the guidance of current and former WNBA players and the WNBA Academy staff.

Players will receive weekly virtual basketball lessons, instructions and challenges featuring current and former WNBA players as part of the program’s on-court curriculum. A variety of shooting, ball handling and conditioning drills meant to promote holistic skill development will be featured.

The top performing athletes will be considered for future in-person basketball development camps and showcases.

Any parent or legal guardian interested in submitting an application for their child should use the sign up page by June 18. Participants will be announced in June, with the program starting in July and running through August.
