These results allow France to reach the world podium among young people. Training is at the heart of our mission and this place obliges us. In the constant search for performance improvement, at the request of the Federal Office, a long reflection was carried out as soon as the summer was released to analyze the evolutions of the game and respond to them in our technical directions. After this briefing, coaches were appointed to lead the 16 young national teams that will compete in the summer of 2023. With the same ambition: to compete for medals in all categories and to ensure the renewal of the French A teams. »

Jacques Comer (Director of Performance and French Teams): “In a bid to optimize performance, the FFBB has set new guidelines for building its technical staff in the summer of 2023. Several key elements guided our choices. Above all, a strong desire to open up to the professional sector. Then the continuation of the feminization process that started a few years ago. With the need for every coach to subscribe to the operational values ​​of our national selections and follow an educational and technical line inspired by the French A teams. The main goal of the National Technical Department remains the continuous improvement of coaches. and the level of play of the young French players, who we hope will find a suitable playing field to express their potential in the LFB, LF2, Pro B and Betclic Elite professional championships. »
