We, the DIBF Women’s Commission, are delighted to share our experiences from two recent seminars held in March and April. In March, we hosted a seminar titled “The Power Within: Strategies for Boosting Self-Efficacy.” This event not only provided valuable insights but also allowed us to gather feedback through surveys on what participants would like to see in future seminars. In April, we convened a follow-up seminar that facilitated a general dialogue and shared reflections.

These sessions helped us identify several challenges and set shared goals for upcoming initiatives. A key focus will be organizing seminars aimed at enhancing women’s basketball, motivating players, attracting young talent, and providing tools to help players reach the next level. Additionally, we aim to expand youth camps globally to grow women’s participation in basketball. Historically, we have faced challenges with the number of participating teams in international tournaments.

Looking forward, we are excited to announce two basketball-focused seminars scheduled for the fall of 2024, in August and November. More detailed information will be provided as the dates approach.

Stay tuned for more updates!
