Why Join

Membership Benefits

The WBCA is the premier source of learning and knowledge for coaches of women's and girls' basketball, and provides resources, education, ideas and advocacy to enhance the power and performance of its members.

Stay on Top of Your Profession


The WBCA provides members with the finest and most advanced coaching education possible. The WBCA’s Convention is the foremost single place for professional development, education, and X’s & O’s in the women’s basketball world. Every day, 24/7, education resources are available to members via WBCA.org. Visit the Education page to review the education programs that can be accessed and used at any time. It includes recorded content, videos, and play animations at Coach’s Clipboard.

Career Center

The WBCA's online Career Center is your gateway to finding the perfect position or filling a vacancy at your school or company.


The WBCA knows there is no substitute for peer-to-peer learning; so, that's why educational sessions at the WBCA Convention bring the top coaches on stage to share their techniques and winning tips. Attend roundtables, panel discussions and on-court presentations to get the knowledge you need to take your team to the next level.

Stay Informed

The WBCA helps members remain up to date on the latest news and information about women's basketball via alert messages on key issues facing the sport and coaches.

Quick Hits is an e-newsletter that brings the latest news from the association and sport, X's & O's, and educational articles right to your email inbox.

WBCA.org, the WBCA's website, is your one-stop shop for association and industry news, educational videos and articles, updates on ongoing changes to legislation and the rules of the game, plays and drills, and much more.

Stay Connected

Whether a current coach, an aspiring coach, an administrator or a fan, the WBCA is where everyone in women's and girls' basketball comes together to help each other grow and to build our sport to new heights.

WBCA Convention

Held during the NCAA® Women's Final Four®, the WBCA Convention is the perfect mixture of professional development, networking opportunities and a celebration of our sport. WBCA members receive discounts on registration as well as the option to purchase Women's Final Four tickets in the WBCA block.

Online Resources

The WBCA's searchable online Member Directory is a great resource for finding peers. Connecting with colleagues is also easy through the WBCA's presence on Facebook and Twitter.

Awards & Recognition

The WBCA offers an extensive awards program through which it recognizes the top coaches and players each season, as well as longtime contributors to our sport. Membership is required to nominate, vote and/or serve on selection committees for the more than 20 awards, including the WBCA Players of the Year (all levels), the United States Marine Corps/WBCA National Coaches of the Year (all levels), and the WBCA Coaches' All-America Teams (all levels).


Speaking up on behalf of coaches with the governing bodies of the sport is more important than ever. We are in an era of rapid change in tournament formats, rules, the roles of coaches, and how the game is officiated. The WBCA represents your concerns and keeps you informed about what is happening. Even if a change doesn't impact your team today it may in the future.

Since 1981, the WBCA has been an advocate for women's and girls' basketball, and today it remains a member-driven association focused on unifying coaches at all levels and fostering the development of the game at every level.

WBCA . . . For the Good of the Game.
