Basketball Austria: Strategy books as an Olympic timetable
In its strategy books, the Austrian Basketball Association is committed to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris and the general sporting and structural development of nearly 1,000 pages. Despite the busy national team over the summer, ÖBV has prepared a timetable for the shortened Olympic three-year cycle in the form of analysis and implementation measures. The result is two books on “classic” 5-on-5 and 3 × 3 direction.
“Over the next few years of planning, several days and nights of brainwashing flowed into these two books,” says President Gerald Martens, whose team worked on two focal points, 5-for-5 and 3-3. . “We now have a sports association in the sports association – it’s great to see how one can benefit from the other. Over the next few years we will work harder on these integrations at all levels, and both types of games will benefit from this.
The goals formulated in the books are different: 5 out of 5 focus on establishing a new sports philosophy and further development of sports and organizational structures, gradually introducing European leading women and men. The 2024 Olympic Games in Paris are clearly targeted. After barely failing to qualify for Tokyo, this is the next logical goal – as funding agencies believe in modern-style play.
“Current government programs include promoting sports as a sport, and of course I’m a big fan of 3×3 basketball.” It will bear fruit – in the form of Olympic medals.
