Roster 

Thirty-six collegiate athletes, including 20 international gold medalists are expected to take part in the 2017 USA Basketball Women’s U23 National Team Training Camp July 31-Aug. 4 at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The 12-member USA U23 National Team that will compete in the 2017 U24 Four Nations Tournament Aug. 12-15 in Tokyo, is expected to be announced Aug. 4.

“The opportunity to work with some of the best talent in today’s college game is truly special,” said USA head coach Jeff Walz (Louisville). “I know all the players coming to the camp possess high-level talent, and once the team is determined, I’m really eager to begin working with that group of young women.”

During training camp, athletes will take part in sessions dedicated to skill development and to understanding the culture of success that is an important aspect of playing for the USA Basketball Women’s National Team. Additionally, the participants will be divided into four teams and will compete in a round-robin tournament that will be capped by gold and bronze medal games.

Training camp begins on July 31 with a session at 5:45 p.m. (all times listed are MDT). On Aug. 1, camp will continue at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., while Team 1 will play Team 2 at 4:30 p.m. and Team 3 will take on Team 4 at 6 p.m. Aug. 2 will begin with Team 1 versus Team 3 at 9:30 a.m. and Team 2 against Team 4 at 11 a.m., and after a training camp session at 3 p.m., Team 1 will play Team 4 at 5 p.m. and Team 2 will meet Team 3 at 6:30 p.m. On Aug. 3, the day will start with semifinal games at 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., followed by a training camp session at 12:30 p.m. and then one-hour team practices for each of the teams from 4-8 p.m. The final day of training camp on Aug. 4 will feature the bronze medal game at 8 a.m., and the gold medal game at 9:30 a.m. The bronze and gold medal games will be streamed live on usab.com/live.

The 12-member team that will represent the USA in an inaugural U24 Four Nations Tournament for college-aged women this summer in Tokyo, Japan, is expected to be announced on Aug. 4. Players selected to the team will continue training at the USOTC through Aug. 7 before departing for Tokyo. Athletes eligible for this team must be U.S. citizens who are 23 years old or younger and currently are freshmen, sophomores or juniors in college.
