Committees & Working Groups

Awards Committees

Each WBCA award committee is responsible for selecting the winner(s), based on specific criteria, of the award for which it is responsible. Individual committee members are responsible for closely following the top prospects for their committee’s award and for encouraging the coaches in their region to nominate candidates and vote for winners.

Coaches Poll Committees

Each coaches poll committee ranks the top 25 women’s basketball teams in its respective division on a weekly basis throughout the season. Rankings are the opinions of the coaches casting ballots and are based on scores, records, strength of schedule, and key wins and losses.

Select Committees

Select committees are those established by the board of directors to oversee a specific task or tasks, provide advice and guidance to the board of directors on specific matters, or both. Unlike ad-hoc committees, which are created to perform a specific task or tasks or study and make recommendations to the board on a particular issue, and automatically dissolve once their work is done, select committees continue in perpetuity unless dissolved by the board.
