Women's Basketball Coaches Association
Founded in 1981, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association promotes women's basketball by unifying coaches at all levels to develop a reputable identity for women's basketball, and to foster and promote the development of the game in all of its aspects as a sport for women and girls.
The initial meeting that led to the founding of the WBCA took place at the 1981 Olympic Festival in Syracuse, N.Y. One of the coaches who was instrumental in the birth of the WBCA was Theresa Grentz, at the time the head coach of Rutgers. Theresa was a key player for The Mighty Macs during their run to the first national championship in women's collegiate basketball.Learn more about the WBCA
Coaches vs Cancer
A nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), Coaches vs. Cancer empowers basketball coaches, their teams, and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The program leverages the personal experiences, community leadership, and professional excellence of basketball coaches nationwide to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living through year-round awareness efforts, fundraising activities, and advocacy programs.
Coaches vs. Cancer grew from a concept championed by Norm Stewart, former head coach of the University of Missouri's men's basketball program—a cancer survivor and member of the NABC. The program began when Coach Stewart challenged fans to pledge a dollar amount for every three-pointer made by his team during the season.
In 1993, the American Cancer Society and the NABC transformed this into a nationwide effort to unite coaches across the country to provide help and hope to all people facing cancer. Today, more than 2,000 Division I, II, and III college coaches are involved in the program. Coaches vs. Cancer has raised nearly $50 million since its inception to support the American Cancer Society's lifesaving mission.Learn more about Coaches vs Cancer

In 1973, the first MOPS meeting took place with eight women in Colorado. While their children received care, these mothers talked, laughed, ate, passed a basket for childcare expenses, had a craft demonstration, and ended with a short devotional. In this humble beginning, the seeds of the MOPS concept and format were planted. Through friendship, creative outlets, and instruction, the women began to understand that "mothering matters." Today, the same needs for significance are met in much the same way in MOPS groups across the United States and around the world.Learn more about MOPS
