From just two affiliates at the beginning, namely football and tennis, the BNSC now has thirty four (34) national sports governing bodies affiliated to it.
They include the following: judo, darts, rugby, athletics, football, softball, badminton, golf, special Olympics, basketball, gymnastics, squash, BISA (secondary schools sport body), hockey, swimming, BODANSA (dance), horse society, table tennis, bowling, karate, tennis, boxing, motor sport, tertiary student sport, brigades, Paralympics, volleyball, bridge, netball, chess, cricket, weightlifting, primary school sport and cycling.
Through the Government of Botswana, the Council is affiliated to the Supreme Council for Sport (SCSA) both at continental and at regional (Zone VI) level.
In an effort to decentralise its structures to be able to reach out to grass-roots, the BNSC has now opened offices in Francistown, Gaborone, Lobatse, Masunga, Maun and Serowe, with more offices due for opening country wide in 2011 and 2012. In fact the BNSC is also urging all their affiliates to follow suit and decentralize their activities.
