Since its establishment in 2013, the federation has been championing promotion of basketball as a platform for empowering young people; develop their skills and talents as well as promoting peaceful co-existence amongst the communities across South Sudan.
As manifested in our slogan, “Build the Game! Build a Nation! One Nation!

Through basketball sports, we have also been promoting young men and women with skills to showcase their potentials and opportunity while competing at home and abroad.
We already have footprints of our basketball potentials at the global stage through, FIBA, NBA, and other world Basketball associations. Our aims and hopes as SSBF are to make South Sudan a basketball powerhouse in coming years, Making South Sudan a basketball nation.
And for that to happen, we must be organized and prepared to meet the global standard, which is why SSBF is here to announce the launching of it Google website.
