    About the Editor

    Founded in 1981, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) promotes women's basketball by unifying coaches at all levels to develop a reputable identity for the sport of women's basketball and fosters and promotes the development of the game in all of its aspects as a sport for women and girls.

    With members throughout the world, it is the largest organization of its kind. The WBCA is involved in a variety of events and clinics throughout the year, including the WBCA High School All-America Game; the Betty F. Jaynes Internship Program; the Nike So You Want To Be A Coach Program and the annual WBCA National Convention, held in conjunction with the NCAA Women's Final Four. Through these events, the WBCA not only highlights exceptionally talented female players but also provides opportunities for coaches at all levels to better themselves.

    In addition to the activities that the WBCA puts on and sponsors, the organization has an extensive awards program through which the best, brightest, and most talented athletes, coaches, and contributors to women's basketball are honored. The WBCA also provides coverage on all aspects of women's basketball, from high school to the pros, through their three publications: Coaching Women's Basketball, Net.News, and Compliance Corner.

    For more information on these and the many activities and opportunities available from the WBCA, check out www.wbca.org.
