The EuroLeague Women Final Eight is as far as you can go on club level as a player, coach and referee.
For three people intimately involved in European basketball, this weekend proved that hard work does pay off.
At the end of the first quarter of the EuroLeague Women Final between Spartak Moscow and Ros Casares three standouts from last summer's International Camp for U15 Girls-one a player, one a coach and one a referee-were honored by FIBA Europe for their performances.
The summer is all about youth basketball at FIBA Europe and in many cases that takes the form of European Championships, but it also means getting younger players involved as is the case on Postojna, Slovenia where the 3rd
FIBA Europe International Camp for U15 Girls has just wrapped up.
Players, coaches and referees from all over Europe converged on Postojna for third straight year and the quality of all three shows the positive effect of the camp on those who attend.
Europe's most talented players participated in the 2nd International Camp for U15 Girls in Postojna at the beginning of July.
Over 30 countries sent their young prospects to the event. The players where supported by 56 coaches from all over Europe and had a tough but memorable few days.
