Why Join

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



Held in conjunction with 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.


With more than 900 videos, plays and drills in the Coaching Library, WBCA.org is your year-round resource for information about every coaching topic. The website also offers toolboxes where member coaches can quickly find resources that fit their position or coaching level. Wherever you are on your coaching journey, the WBCA has online tools to help.

Coaches' Classroom

Available to coaches at every level of women's and girls' basketball, these archived clinics are outstanding opportunities to learn from some of the top coaches in the country.

#WBCAPosdcast: Growing Our Game

The WBCA Podcast: Growing Our Game is where we sit down with coaches and industry leaders to dive into a variety of topics regarding women’s basketball. Join host Shanteona Keys, manager of education, and the association as we work to build excellent people, not just excellent players, and improve lives, not just records.



The WBCA Coach to Coach Mentoring Program is a small-group mentoring program designed to bring together member coaches and support staff during the basketball season to share ideas, confront challenges and learn from one another. Beyond the Box is a peer-to-peer program designed for seasoned coaches with three or more years of experience in their current roles.

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 40 awards, including the United States Marine Corps/WBCA National Coaches of the Year (collegiate levels), the Wilson Sporting Goods/WBCA National High School Coach of the Year, the WBCA Players of the Year (all levels), and the WBCA Coaches' All-America teams (all levels).

Coach awards. Acknowledging the best coaches in our profession is an important part of our mission.

Player awards. The WBCA shines a light on the top student-athletes at every division.

Team awards. Our WBCA Academic Top 25 honors teams’ successes in the classroom, and our NCAA/WBCA Coaches’ Trophy, presented to the NCAA Division I national champion is the pinnacle of achievement in our sport.

Polls. Throughout the season the WBCA produces the NCAA Divisions I, II, and III Top 25 Coaches Polls each week.

Speaking 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.

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 Our Game.
