Players sometimes lack the intensity to follow through with a play and execute it, especially if the play wasn’t originally designed for them. This could be one of those plays, but with solid screens, hard cuts, and crisp passes, almost anyone on the court could wind up with an open look at the basket.

Designed specifically for the women’s game, the playbook includes over 100 plays for scoring, inbounding the ball, and breaking a defensive press.

The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) was founded in 1981 with the mission to promote women’s basketball by unifying coaches at all levels to develop a reputable identity for the sport of women’s basketball and to foster and promote the development of the game of basketball as a sport for women and girls.
The WBCA is composed of collegiate, high school, junior high school, club, youth, national, international, and Olympic coaches. The WBCA is committed to servicing its members and helping to develop women’s basketball by providing education, networking opportunities, information and news, and legislative updates. It also serves as the voice of the membership to the NCAA. The WBCA also recognizes dozens of people each year through their 18 awards and is involved in several events and clinics throughout the year, including the WBCA National Convention, which is held in conjunction with the NCAA Women’s Final Four.
