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.
