By NCBCA - North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association on Jan 19, 2019 2:22:32 PM

2016-17 was another record year for the North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association. Thanks to ideas we incorporated (borrowed from other states) from our participation in the 2016 NHSBCA meetings, our year end membership grew again, to over 750 coaches. We also gave out more awards and honors to our players and coaches than ever before. Our 2017-18 membership has already surpassed 800 members for this year and we usually have a large rush to sign up in early February, just before we start accepting our All District nominations

Pennsylvania Points of Pride 2017

By Pennsylvania Basketball Coaches Association on Jan 19, 2019 2:22:26 PM

The PABCA (Pennsylvania Basketball Coaches Association) was launched January 1, 2016 and after almost two years of operation we have over 200 members. Pennsylvania was one of the few states in the country that never had a basketball coaches association. With many successful basketball players and coaches from Pennsylvania, Glenn Anderson decided to create the first Pennsylvania Basketball Coaches Association. The people of Pennsylvania are proud of its rich basketball tradition that includes Wilt Chamberlain, Chuck Cooper, Maurice Stokes and Kobe Bryant, not to mention George Karl and John Calipari. We offered a FREE Coaches Clinic in April (Keynote Speaker John Miller –father of Sean and Archie Miller). Our youth clinic was offered in June and provided quality instruction by USA Basketball coaches for boys and girls 10-14 years of age. Our first Coaches Clinic was September 23rd and featured Andy Toole (RMU), Keith Dambrot (Duquesne University) and the legendary John Calipari (Kentucky). Over 100 high school and youth coaches attended the clinic and enjoyed listening to our knowledgeable speakers. We truly appreciate all of the help and support the NHSBCA (National High School Basketball Coaches Association) has provided and we will continue to rely on their expertise as our association grows. For more information on PABCA, and to view clinic videos, go to www.pa-bca.org or email us at info@pabca,org.

Tennessee Points of Pride 2017

By BCAT - Tennessee Basketball Coaches Association on Jan 19, 2019 2:22:22 PM

The Tennessee Basketball Coaches Association currently has several things going on as this busy 2017 winds down. We have signed sponsorship agreements with Baron Rings, PGC Basketball, and Dr. Dish – very excited about these new relationships that will improve the “quality” of resource/opportunities for our membership. Also, we have started a scholarship program for our membership’s children and their players. Also, plans are in the works to create a Tennessee Basketball “ Hall of Fame,” which will require a great deal of work and dedication. Our clinic was outstanding this past Fall, and we are pushing hard to build up our membership. We are sending out weekly playbooks/notebooks to our coaches, and continue to look for ways to increase the value of our association for the Tennessee high school basketball community. Our participation in the NHSBCA Convention last July in Indianapolis continued to upgrade our opportunities, and we look forward uncovering new “gems” at this year’s event in North Carolina!

2017-2018WIBCA Year in Review

By WIBCA - Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association on Jan 19, 2019 2:22:20 PM

The recent school calendar year was again another successful one for WIBCA and its member coaches and student-athletes. First, a little background of WIBCA. We were founded in 1974, WIBCA, Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association, is the main association of high school boys’ basketball coaches from across the state of Washington. We are a non-profit organization and are under the umbrella of the Washington State Coaches Association. Year-round the number of events, activities, and awards that WIBCA sponsors continues to grow and grow, all in the name of providing services and benefits to our member coaches and their student-athletes. Some of the past years highlights include our six All State Games, Northwest Shootout Game and our annual Hall of Fame inductions. For the first time in our history at our All State games, we did not charge any of our 60 participants a fee to play in the games. Our Northwest Shootout team was successfully put together with 10 of the top Washington seniors but lost a heartbreaking close game. This year’s hall of fame inductions recognized three head coaches, one assistant coach and three individuals each for their service and dedication to the sport of boys’ basketball in the great state of Washington including our new Pat Fitterer “You Gotta Love it” award. In July, WIBCA sent a group of four board members to the National High School Basketball Coaches Association meetings in Indianapolis, Indiana. For the past eight years WIBCA has seen their membership in this association grow and also their role as a leading state association nationally. WIBCA provided two quality clinics this year, one in the fall and one in the spring for coaches to increase their professional development while also having great opportunity for coaching collaboration and collegial time. Our coaches across the state again stepped up and promoted our WIBCA vs. Cancer week at the end of January. Our donation total continues to grow and grow and we are moving close to the $700,000 mark! WIBCA saw record sponsorship and because of this was able to continue offering two $1,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors. Our spring saw again the 16th Annual Showcase for 160 basketball players in our state. College coaches from the Pacific Northwest came to watch and evaluate these players. Also at this year’s Showcase, WIBCA again promoted our Dribble, Shoot, Swish event that gave young people the opportunity to win money but more importantly to increase that by making a charitable donation on their behalf with their initial winnings. WIBCA is very proud of what we do for coaches and humbled by the participation and support for our association. Over the past 44 years WIBCA has grown and grown into the great association we are today and with another great year next year an even better one in the future.
