Youth Olympic Games

Growing up, many athletes watch the Olympics and dream of one day competing on the world stage and winning gold medals. In 2010, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) created an opportunity for young athletes to achieve that dream, and the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) launched that year in Singapore. The YOGs are multi-sport events held every four years and feature both summer (2018, 2022, etc.) and winter editions (2020, 2024, etc.). Featuring athletes age 15-18, it is anticipated that the 2018 YOGs will have representation from 206 different countries in 32 sports, including 3x3 basketball.

The basketball competition at the Youth Olympic Games is a 3x3 format organized by the IOC and FIBA. The 2018 Youth Olympic Games, scheduled for Oct. 6-18 in Buenos Aires, Argentina,  is expected to include 20 men’s teams and 20 women’s teams, as well as individual contests for both men and women.

In order to be eligible, athletes must participate in at least one FIBA-sanctioned 3x3 tournament in 2018 prior to participating in the 2018 USA Basketball 3x3 U18 National Tournament. To receive an invitation to participate in the 2018 USA Basketball 3x3 U18 National Tournament, teams must be selected through a qualifying 3x3 tournament and approved by USA Basketball.
