|Participants at a youth discussion panel in November in Munich|
On request of a number of federations and as part of the on-going evaluation of youth basketball carried out by FIBA Europe, a meeting of performance directors was organised in Munich.
The select group of basketball authorities from throughout Europe came together on 13 November, providing and sharing their own experiences from developing youth programmes.
