Keys to growth of a basketball association?

This is such a broad question but I hope it leads to more specific ones....
"What are the key elements that determine the success / growth or failure / regression of a basketball association?"

For most it's how well they run and promote their domestic competition. It generates money for coaching and programs and if there is a constant flow of kids coming into the rep program they get a chance every year to be a positive influence on a new batch of kids to build towards future success.

The number one priority is culture.

The Coaching Staff and in particular the Director of Coaching.

If the DOC has multiple roles (eg DOC and Head Coach of 1s Rep teams and / or NBL1 teams) they will not have enough time to focus on developing a decent Coaching Team.

Without a decent coaching team, you cannot develop a decent Culture.
Without a decent coaching team, the quality of Domestic level competition will be poorer.

As they say, "A fish always rots from the head down".
