The league announced Wednesday that the first camp will be held in Mexico City from March 9-11 and will bring in the top 20-25 players ages 17 and under from the Carribean, Mexico, Central America and South America.

The camp will be overseen by Ruth Riley, Jennifer Azzi and former college coach Blair Hardiek. Besides playing basketball, the participants in the camp will also take part in a panel that will focus on personal and professional development, making the most of opportunities and goal setting. That will take place on March 9 as part of International Women's Day.

Other camps are planned in Australia, China, India and Senegal by the end of the year.
