HistoryEdit

From 1964 to 1992 Croatia played under Yugoslavia. In 1994 the team participated in its first ever FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship as an independent entity. When Croatia men's national basketball team also with youth, U-19, U-16 and women's team joined FIBA in 1992 they then launched their own youth teams due to them being no longer with Yugoslavia. Their wins as combined stayed with the Yugoslavia team only. None of the teams wins were transferred to Croatia, as FIBA is concerned the U-19 team was formed in 1994 even though players from Croatia played for Yugoslavia. When Croatian Basketball Federation was founded on 19 December 1948 as a member of the larger Basketball Federation of Yugoslavia.[2][3][4]

The team won their first medal in 1996 where they finished first for a gold medal at FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship.
