The first 3×3 Tryout for Senior Women took place on Sunday 1st May in Stadtbredimus. A total of 11 players playing in the LBBL, Nationale 2 and abroad signed up, but not all could participate due to various reasons (sickness, championship finals, etc.).
After a warm-up including some ballhandling/shooting drills and a speed/agility drill, Vincent Gevrey tested the players by making them play 1-vs-1 and then 3×3.
Vincent Gevrey (3×3 Women’s National Team Coach), Majdi Anan (3×3 Men’s National Team Coach) and Mariusz Dziurdzia (Women’s National Team Coach) watched and evaluated the players during the tryout to determine which players have the skills and potential to become successful 3×3 players. This evaluation will serve as a basis to decide which players will be part of the 3×3 National Team’s extended roster.
On 9th May, the players on the extended roster will start the preparation for the FIBA 3×3 Europe Cup Qualifiers in Limassol, Cyprus. Only four players will be able to represent Luxembourg during this tournament.
Since 2022 is the first year that Luxembourg is eligible to participate in National Team events, the FIBA 3×3 Europe Cup Qualifiers are the first official National Team competition that Luxembourg will be taking part in.
