FIBA launched the FIBA 3x3 e-learning programme in November 2014.

This innovative education tool developed by the FIBA Academy with the FIBA 3x3 team is available to FIBA's member National Federations and the community of FIBA 3x3 organisers worldwide.

The programme is set to provide an important stepping stone for National Federations and 3x3 Organisers to further improve their knowledge and to develop 3x3 as a whole.

It brings together the various components of 3x3 to explain the used nomenclature, the rules of the game, the competition structure, player rankings and the digital platforms required to organise, manage and participate in the fast-rising discipline.

A major incentive for the national federations is that being 3x3 e-learning certified at cut-off date is an eligibility criterion to participate in any FIBA 3x3 National Team competitions. It is available here in English, Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish and Arabic. This is an incentive for all national federations to participate in the programme and raise their knowledge of 3x3.

The FIBA 3x3 Federation Ranking is the criteria used to identify the teams qualified to FIBA 3x3 World Cup (men, women, U18 men, U18 women) and the Youth Olympic Games.
