The IBCA is excited for the start of the 2018-19 school year. We have had a lot going on in our great state of Illinois - with the IBCA in particular. Last year, the IBCA began the “Century Club” recognition for our coaches. Another initiative that we began was the Program Victories Milestones. Twenty-one programs throughout the state were recognized for total program wins throughout their school’s history. We also recognized “Organizations of the Year”. The inaugural winners of this award were the Centralia Holiday Tournament, the Pontiac Holiday Tournament, and the DeKalb/Chuck Dayton Holiday Classic. It is so important to the IBCA to continue to recognize and highlight our great coaches, programs, and organizations throughout our state every year! More information can be found on our website.
Good things are happening in Iowa with the Iowa Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA) -
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. Students 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. The award recognized players who have overcome substantial obstacles in their pursuit of their basketball dream. In 2009, CBS Sports feature this award presentation as part of their pre-game show for the men’s final four in Michigan. Jason McElwain, of ESPN fame, was on hand to make the presentations. The award has gone on to become a truly inspirational moment of each year’s banquet.

The KABC was formed in 1993 after several meetings of coaches representing various regions of the state. The meetings took place in Lexington, Kentucky, at the KHSAA offices. The purpose of these meetings was to develop a basketball coaches' association that would protect and promote the game and its tradition-rich legacy.
The MBCA Mission is and has been from the beginning to “Promote Basketball Throughout the State of Missouri.” We are doing this with over 1,500 members that are provided professional liability insurance through the MBCA along with the accolades for coaches, players and events. We also provide team rankings for all classifications both girls and boys weekly throughout the basketball season; we are the only organization in the state that provides this service.
The NHBCO continues to make a commitment to grow as an organization. The past three years the organization’s officers have traveled to the NHSBCA National Conventions in Las Vegas, Kansas City, and to Indianapolis in 2017. Many great ideas have come out of these trips.
BCANY was formed in 1982 and is led by a Board of Directors which is comprised of volunteer Directors for boy’s coaches and for girls’ coaches from each of the 11 sections of NYSPHSAA as well as from NYS Catholic, NYC Public and NYS Private Schools.
