Basketball England is the national governing body of the sport in England. We administer and govern basketball at all levels for participants of every age and ability while offering specialist guidance on improving standards of the game, facilitating education and training opportunities and delivering a competitive outlet through leagues and tournaments such as the National League.
This is who we are, the purpose of our organisation and what we do.
‘To provide an inspirational basketball experience for more people, more often.’
This is what we want to be. What does success look like? In an ideal world what would our organisation look like?
‘For everyone in England to have the opportunity to discover, enjoy and experience the game.’
Values are the shared beliefs we have as an organisation which will help us achieve our vision. It is a way of working which we will all adhere to work towards success.
Ethical and Transparent – We must be a trustworthy, reliable and credible organisation which provides ethical and fair environments for people to become involved in the sport. We must provide open, honest and clear communication to everyone we want to talk to. Providing a rationale on why the organisation is operating as it is means everyone can understand the direction of where we’re going and how we are trying to get there.
Responsibility – We have a responsibility to the sport; to basketball and everyone involved in it to provide the best, most valuable service we can. We are the guardian of the game.
Creative – We are proactive in seeking out creative ideas and ways of working to make our organisation more effective. We recognise that as a governing body it is sometimes a challenge to work innovatively, due to organisational infrastructure, but we should always be on the look-out for new ways of working and be open minded about suggested changes.
Passion – We want to give everyone the best basketball experience we can. We can’t do that without caring; whether it is passion for basketball as a sport, a brand or the individual role you play in helping to make basketball better.
