Promoting Maine Basketball

This is the motto of the Maine Association of Basketball Coaches. Each year the MABC is looking for new ways to promote the state’s most popular sport. The MABC is comprised of coaches from all areas of the state, from all classifications and levels - both male and female. The MABC currently promotes Maine basketball on its website; mabc1.org. The activities currently being sponsored by MABC are:

  • Website
  • Outstanding Coaching Achievement Awards
  • Maine McDonald's All-Stars Weekend
  • MABC Media Award for Outstanding Basketball Coverage
  • MABC Academic All-State Team
  • D. Robert Brown Contributor Award for Outstanding Work for Maine Basketball
  • Foul Shooting Contest
  • Fall Clinic
  • Maine Principal's Association Representation
  • MABC Spring/Fall Showcase Events
  • Maine State Basketball Commission Representation
 

Maine McDonald’s All-Star Weekend continues to be the focal point of the Maine Association of Basketball Coaches. This showcase event has grown steadily throughout the years and now includes all-star team practices, a formal awards banquet, and all-star games. Student athletes are recognized for their prowess on the court and in the classroom. Coaches of the year are recognized as well. In recent years the MABC has established a new award entitled The Spirit of the Game. This award recognizes players who have overcome substantial obstacles in their pursuit of their basketball dreams. The award has gone on to become a truly inspirational moment at each year’s banquet. All proceeds from this weekend’s events goes to support two Ronald McDonald Houses for cancer patients in northern and southern Maine.
