The FIBA Player Guide

As the governing body for international basketball, FIBA is the best source for information about the international game and aims to be the best source for programmes, products and services that can directly benefit your development on and off-the-court.

At FIBA, we believe that your development and success on-the-court are not separate from your development and success off-the-court. This guide is designed to help you think about some of the ways that success off-the-court can strengthen your career and prepare you to take full advantage of the opportunities that may come your way.

Succeeding on-the-court while developing off-the-court go hand-in-hand. Keeping the contents of this guide in mind will help you realise your full potential and become the most well-rounded player – and person – you can be. For any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at

Good luck!
