2013 USA Basketball Women's 3x3 National Championship Schedule & Qualifying Information

Think you have what it takes to represent USA Basketball at the 2014 FIBA World Championship?

USA Basketball will be fielding one men's and one women's team to compete in the 2014 3x3 Worlds, which will be held June 2014 in Moscow, Russia. The USA women are defending 3x3 World Championship gold medalists, while the USA 3x3 men finished in seventh place at the 2012 FIBA 3x3 World Championship. The competition is open to players of any age and in order to be eligible to represent USA Basketball at the 2014 3x3 Worlds, athletes must be a U.S. citizen.

The four-member teams (one men's team, one women's team) will be selected following the 2014 USA Basketball 3x3 National Championship, and this year's USA Basketball 3x3 National Championship champions will earn a berth to next summer's tournament.

The 2013 USA 3x3 National Championship will be held Aug. 2-4 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center (USOTC) in Colorado Springs, Colo. In order to qualify for the USA 3x3 National Championship, teams must first compete in and receive an invitation to the USA 3x3 National Championship via one of the 3x3 qualifying tournaments as listed below.

The USA Basketball 3x3 National Championship will consist of offensive and defensive performance sessions, basketball skills contests, and an official 3x3 tournament where all teams will have the opportunity to play a minimum of three games against some of the toughest opponents from around the country to challenge for the chance to represent USA Basketball at the 2014 FIBA 3x3 World Championship. The men's and women's teams that earn a berth to the 2014 USA 3x3 National Championship MUST play in another official 3x3 tournament in 2014 to satisfy FIBA's minimum requirement of competing in at least two tournaments in a calendar year.

USA Basketball is looking to select the best overall men's and women's 3x3 teams that demonstrate the necessary standard of what it takes to represent the United States in domestic and international competition.

  • USA Basketball will identify team members for its 2014 USA Men's and Women's 3x3 National Teams based on the following criteria:
