The National Federations Manual produced by FIBA, in collaboration with various basketball experts from around the world, is a complete and comprehensive collection of information to assist each National Federation in their everyday operations and for the overall future of basketball in each country.

Not only does the manual give concrete hints on the many areas a federation deals with on a daily basis, but it also serves as a user-friendly tool to help guide federations in how to take a giant step closer to achieving their goals.

It doesn't matter if a Federation is just starting up or if it has been existing for 100 years - there is something in this manual for everyone. By making this guide a co-pilot and using it to meet the various needs of each organization, the federations can be assured that they are leading their sport in the right direction and that the questions and concerns they have for the future of basketball are addressed.

With the manual now in the hands of all the National Federations, FIBA wants to help facilitate the process of measuring progress, assisting the federations and providing guidance in whichever way they can.
