When most people think of USA Basketball, the Olympic and World Championship teams, comprised of professional players, spring to mind. But did you know that USA Basketball also fields teams comprised of players as young as 14 years old who compete for the United States in various international basketball competitions?

From the U16 National Teams that compete in the FIBA Americas U16 Championships to the U19 National Teams that square off against the world’s best at the FIBA U19 World Championship, USA Basketball typically fields up to seven junior teams every summer.

Currently, men's and women's USA Basketball youth teams are defending gold medal champions at the FIBA U19 World Championship, FIBA U17 World Championship, FIBA Americas U18 Championship and FIBA Americas U16 Championship, and you can help ensure future USA Basketball teams have the support needed to continue the streak.

They both returned in 2010 to help their respective USA squads win gold medals at the men's and women's 2010 FIBA World Championships.
