FABC - Florida Basketball Coaches Association

The Florida Basketball Coaches Association was started in Orlando at a meeting of Central Florida head coaches / organized by Coach Ed Kershner in the Fall of 2009

  • The FABC hosts a 1-day men’s & women’s coaching clinic in Orlando each year on the Saturday after Labor Day weekend. During this clinic weekend we conduct our Coach & Player of the Year banquet in the afternoon, and our girls & boys all-star games that same evening on the same site.
  • We also honor milestone victories for head coaches at different levels (100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900). There is a different award for each level including Junior College & 4-year coaches awards.
  • Our top awards are the King & Queen of Court for the top male & female player in the Sunshine State each year.
  • The “Court of LegendsHall of Fame is our crown jewel honor and is located at the RMF/Lakeland Center, and it highlights the top coaches, players, and teams in Florida’s history. This special wall of honor is sponsored by Publix grocers.
  • We’ve developed a state-wide membership email communications system with 1,200 addresses. Changes are updated with new coaching assignments each spring and summer. These new coaching changes are posted on our website at  fabcbasketball.net
  • Ours is the only sports organization in Florida that compiles the overall won-loss records of both men & women basketball coaches.
  • Our scholarship search program is for biographies of players at all levels / that includes contact information, academic grade point average in core and overall, plus player statistics. This has been very successful - we cover 5 Southeastern states (Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Florida). This has been an extremely valuable tool in helping student-athletes
  • We are also in the process of bringing back our one-hour state–wide radio call-in show. It will be a 1 to 1 ½ hour show / pre-season in November & post season in March.
  • We have also developed a positive relationship with the Florida state high school athletic association, and are in the process of getting our starting date moved back for the girls state tournament / they want to be part of March Madness like the rest of the nation.
