The USA Basketball Women's 3x3 Junior National Teams have achieved unprecedented success on the international stage, claiming medals in all seven editions of the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Cups and each of the three Youth Olympic Games held.
The FIBA 3x3 U18 World Cup has been held on an annual basis since 2011, except the years of the Summer Youth Olympic Games (2010, 2014, 2018). The 2021 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Cup will take place Aug. 24-29 in Debrecen, Hungary. In addition to the men’s and women’s 3x3 tournaments, included in the 3x3 program are individual skills contests.
The Summer Youth Olympic Games, launched in 2010 and held every four years, has seen a U.S. squad on the podium in each edition of the event. After finishing with the bronze medal in 2010, the USA claimed gold in 2014 and 2018. The 2022 Youth Olympic Games have been postponed until 2023 due to the worldwide pandemic.
