2023-2024 TABC RANKED TEAMS

President’s Message

TABC Members,

It’s hard to explain to an outsider the grind of the basketball season. For all of us in this fight, please take some words of encouragement as the sleepless nights build. The finish line is near! Hopefully your team is in the playoff hunt, and if not, the experience being gained can be used to progress the program forward in the next few years.

TABC is in the process of finalizing the plans for the Clinic (San Antonio, May 16th-18th) and both Showcases. The Girls Showcase (June 13th-15th) is moving to Bryan at the Legends Event Center. The Boys Showcase (June 21st-23rd) will once again be in the DFW area at the following places [Southwest Athletic Center (Carrollton), Hebron HS (Carrollton), The Colony HS (The Colony) and Lewisville HS (Lewisville)]. A reminder that all levels of college coaches are able to attend. Registration for the Showcases will be open later this spring.

UIL Bench Protocol Reminder/UIL Game Administrators’ Training

High School/Middle School Basketball Coaches:
TABC supports the UIL reminding coaches to continue working to raise the expectations for on court behavior of their athletes. The UIL also asks that coaches put in place and practice a process and procedure to address keeping athletes on the bench in case of an altercation on the court. The UIL has developed a resource for coaches called UIL Bench Protocol Guidance that can be downloaded at the following link: https://www.uiltexas.org/files/athletics/Basketball_Bench_Protocol_12-1-23.pdf

Basketball Game Administrators’ Training:
As a reminder, the UIL has created a Game Administrator Training presentation for districts to use at their discretion. The training is the result of collaboration with athletic directors, and campus and district administrators from around the state. The presentation may be downloaded at the following link: https://www.uiltexas.org/files/athletics/UIL_AOD_Presentation.pdf
