Filipina cager Camille Nolasco is one of 50 female prospects selected to participate in the NBA Academy Women’s Virtual Program, an eight-week basketball and leadership development program for young international prospects outside the U.S. 

The 16-year-old Nolasco was one of four Jr. NBA Philippines All-Stars who represented Asia Pacific at the Jr. NBA Global Championship in 2019 where she averaged 6.6 points, 4.0 assists, and 1.8 steals in five games.

In the NBA Academy's virtual program, Nolasco and other participants are expected to develop both basketball and life skills and learn from current and former WNBA players and the NBA Academy staff throughout the two months.

The program’s on-court curriculum will feature interactive lessons, which includes a variety of shooting, ball handling and conditioning drills to promote holistic skill development. The top performing athletes will be considered for future in-person basketball development camps and showcases.

Participants will also engage in sessions focused on leadership development, nutrition, goal setting, personal branding, mental health and wellness, player pathway education, and women’s empowerment. Guest speakers and experts from across the NBA and WNBA family, including NBA Academy Women’s Program Global Technical Director Jennifer Azzi, will lead these weekly sessions.

“The NBA Academy Women’s Virtual Program will continue our mission of helping young women around the world develop as people and players,” said Azzi, who is a 1996 Olympic gold medalist. 

“International players are making a significant impact at all levels of the women’s game, and this program will help top international prospects connect with their peers, learn directly from WNBA players and continue their development.”
