Basketball Without Borders (BWB) camps

Inaugurated in 2001, the idea of the first ‘’Basketball without Borders’’ (BWB) camp was to use the sport of basketball as a common language for global peace, friendship and sportsmanship. Both FIBA and the NBA wished to promote goodwill around the world; the camp was an opportunity to demonstrate that basketball had a capacity to bring people together.

The aim
The aim of promoting goodwill around the world and using the sport of basketball as a common language for global peace, friendship and sportsmanship, has been set in place with the "Basketball without Borders" camps. 
The positive message of working together, developing leadership skills, and living a healthy, drug-and alcohol-free lifestyle has been infused into the basketball instruction. The camps have provided young players with the tools necessary to succeed both on and off the court, with all participants learning the importance of hard work, dedication, teamwork, and fair play. Through the work of FIBA/NBA players, this important message will be carried to hundreds more campers in the years to come.
