Following a period of research, consultation, international comparisons and consideration of the best practice in basketball, we now signal a period of change, improvement and delivery to develop and grow the sport. We have a tremendous opportunity to promote the sport to the nation, government, media and potential investors in a positive and realistic way if we show we can achieve a lot more collectively for basketball and the communities we all serve.

This strategic plan is the direction, focus and advert for all stakeholders to help leverage a better future for basketball and support the thousands of people benefiting from our sport.
