Following consultation with our membership and key stakeholders, we are delighted to present our finalised Strategic Plan 2018-2024, “Growing Basketball Together”.
We received feedback from people in a range of roles within the game; coaches, officials, club managers, parents and fans and everyone who submitted feedback via our website received an individual response to acknowledge their thoughts and provide further clarity where questions were asked. The overwhelming response to the strategy was positive and those who provided feedback are in broad agreement with the aims and objectives of the strategy.
As a result of the feedback received, the final document makes clearer the importance of coaching, technical standards and facilities, and better highlights the importance of basketball’s impact on social outcomes. We have also made some amends to the layout of the plan so that the pages are easier to read and key points stand out more.
Basketball England's Chief Executive Stewart Kellett said, “I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the development of this plan, and those who took the time to provide us with feedback. It is really encouraging to have so much expertise in the game feeding in their ideas and providing positive responses that shows so many people are united behind the plan. We now look forward to working with the clubs, coaches, officials, volunteers, academies, schools, universities and other bodies to grow and develop the game together. We will also be communicating regular progress on the plan and spotlighting the good practice in the basketball community that is making a difference to our sport."
Regular updates will follow to highlight the progress of delivering the strategy, which already includes the launch of the Coaching and Advisory Group and the Officiating Advisory Group.
