The UWBCA exists to educate coaches, honor student athletes, and facilitate networking. Additionally, we provide a unified voice for Women’s High School Basketball Programs. We accomplish these goals through our Annual Coach’s Clinic and Senior All-Star Games, as well as strategic relationships with the press and the UHSAA.
Women’s Athletics have faced many challenges over the years and we aim to be a positive partner in bettering the game for girls and future student athletes. Thank you for your support.
“A girl’s basketball coaches association was actually Phil Russell’s idea (Ogden coaching legend). The association officially became an entity when Mae Miya and I met at the Village Inn in Woods Cross to brainstorm the structure of the association. We held a couple of coaching clinics with some of our great local college coaches presenting. The first year attendance was Mae, Shauna Kay and me. Mae and I kept meeting at the Village Inn in Woods Cross (no email yet!). After four years, we decided to pass the torch to others. Attendance has ebbed and flowed over the years. Now, as I attend the UWBCA coaching clinics, I am pleased to see the organization and effort of the directors, the number of coaches in the stands and their serious efforts to learn how to best teach this ever-evolving game.”
Here’s to the next 20 years of the UWBCA!
