Denmark to Host European Mini Basketball Convention 2024

COPENHAGEN (Denmark) - The Danish Basketball Federation, with the support of FIBA and the FIBA Foundation, will host this year's FIBA Mini Basketball Convention from May 30 to June 2.

The annual event will gather 70 delegates from European basketball federations, all actively involved in mini basketball.

The purpose of FIBA's Mini Basketball Convention is to educate on the importance of health and well-being and provide tools to keep children active through fun and playful fundamental activities for children aged 5-12. The delegates and local coaches will participate in both practical and theoretical sessions, where they will experience playful ways to teach the fundamental skills of basketball and exchange experiences across countries.

Additionally, this year's program includes the second edition of the FIBA Europe Mini Basketball Coaching Course (FEMBCC) with the participation of 51 coaches from 29 nations, and with a record number of females. Participants in this course will engage in advanced coaching techniques and best practices to further the development of mini basketball across Europe.

To make a greater impact in the host country, training sessions and friendly matches will be organized, bringing children together to play basketball in a fun and unique setting. This year, the practical sessions will take place in Amagerhallen in collaboration with BK Amager, which will provide players and training facilities during the conference. The players will receive a Molten basketball during the event to encourage them to continue playing.

Additionally, this year's program includes a visit to the Children's Basketball Foundation's 'Copenhagen 3x3 Summer Festival,' held in Frederiksberg on June 1 and 2. During the event, conference participants and FIBA delegates, including FIBA Europe Executive Director Kamil Novak, will gain an inspiring insight into some of the foundation's work in Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark.

Since 2018, the FIBA Mini Basketball Convention has been held in countries such as Portugal, Australia, and Morocco, reaching 8,500 children and 960 delegates from 150 national federations. We look forward to being part of this exciting and inspiring event and welcoming many international guests to Denmark.
