Basketball Australia (BA) has full-time head coaches for the men’s and women’s Olympic and Paralympic programs for the first time since 2000. Performance in the Oceania qualifying events was in line with the 2013 expectations, with all teams qualifying for their respective 2014 world championships. A key aspect of BA’s high performance strategy has been the establishment of a National Centre of Excellence at the AIS Canberra campus, providing greater access and reach to priority athletes.

BA is progressing towards compliance with the mandatory governance principles, including the adoption of a revised proportionate voting system. There is scope for improvement in the areas of transparency and timely reporting. The de-merger of the National Basketball League (NBL) from BA has been finalised. The future relationship between the two organisations will be critical to support athlete pathways and participation growth.

The Aussie Hoops program is being re-launched in 2014, with targeted pilots indicating the program can be effective at driving increased participation. BA is investigating a more effective national database registration system to enable the capture of more accurate participation data.
