Teams Participating in Women's Final Four and WNIT

  • The WBCA appreciates those members who forgo their convention fees to the WBCA while they compete in the NCAA Women’s Final Four and the WNIT and assist the association in fulfilling its mission. Coaches and staff who register for convention and subsequently participate in the Women’s Final Four or WNIT (semifinal and championship rounds), however, may request their registration fees be credited toward registration for the next year’s convention when their dates of tournament play coincide with the dates of the WBCA Convention. All requests for the credit must be made in writing by April 15th each year and submitted by email to Shayla Black at sblack@wbca.org. The persons in question must also register to attend the next year’s convention to receive the credit. Membership dues and registration fees apply to the member and not the institution.  

    **Dates for the 2024 NCAA Women’s Basketball Invitation Tournament (WBIT) have not been announced. If the championship takes place at the time of the WBCA Convention, the above policy will apply. 

Transfers

  • All requests for transfer of registration must be submitted in writing (email or mail).
