As part of GB's aim of further strengthening its performance pathway across the home nations, a number of rising stars have spent a day at the Senior Women's camp.
England U18 head coach Lee Ryan and a number of his players visited the University of Worcester last week and it proved to be an inspiring experience.
One of those in attendance was WBBL (Women's British Basketball League) Young Player of the Year Savannah Wilkinson, who was thrilled to have had the opportunity to learn from the visit.
"I would like to thank the GB staff and players on behalf of all six of us, for such an amazing, breath taking and honourable experience," enthused the Barking Abbey Crusaders' standout
"It has truly opened my eyes to the work I need to put in so that I can achieve my dream of one day representing the GB senior women.
"It was great to get onto the court and learn from Coach Buckle and his assistants.
"Speaking to the players and the specialist GB staff, we now understand what makes GB basketball such a well-knitted and skilled team.
"Their motivational words have really hit home and I can't wait to get back onto the court to implement all of this learning into my game.
"We will all take the aggression and intensity of their training into the England U18 national team programme."
She added, "Thanks again to the whole GB women's team, who have truly inspired us!"
Her sentiment was echoed by Coach Ryan, who was also delighted to have been invited along with Wilkinson, Kyla Nelson, Paige Robinson, Eleanor Jones, Georgia Gayle and Jess Davies.
He stated, "This was a special day for these six U18 England National Team players and for the coaches alike.
"It's incredibly valuable to see the level first hand and to give the players a taste for what they could achieve with continued hard work.
"I want to thank the GB senior players and all the staff for giving back to the next generation so generously.
"This experiences will benefit these individuals on their personal journey, but will also be something they can share with the rest of the England U18 squad when we reconvene for our final preparation heading towards the European Championship later this summer."
Meanwhile for GB National Teams Director, Warwick Cann it was hugely satisfying to see the attendees benefit from the experience.
He was also thrilled at being able to highlight the ongoing desire to successfully bring the best young players through the respective home nation programmes and potentially into the GB U20 and Senior teams.
"It's good to see the T16 & Beyond generation from England come together with the GB senior players in camp," declared Cann.
"The pathway from all the home nations to GB has been well planned over the past six years and is now clearly in operation.
"This is further evidenced by three current U20 players (from Scotland and England ) making it onto the final 14 names of the candidate list for Eurobasket Women 2015."
He continued, "It was great to see Basketball England/Sport England funded U18 players both learning and mixing side by side with GB senior players.
"The day also clearly reflected the impact of the 'Areas of Emphasis' coaching guidelines and the good work being done by the respective home nations and clubs.
"It's very much part of our collective GB focus on being successful in the longer term heading towards 2020.
"I'm glad the younger players have benefitted from the initiative and we look forward to creating more opportunities to build the GB squad with all of the home nations."
The 'Areas of Emphasis' Coaching Guidelines and the recent release of a Club Skills Guide are both key tools in helping to maintain and further improve synergy in the development pathway across the home nations and GB - as well as growing the game and securing the emergence of future generations.
