Reasons to Join Florida Association of Basketball Coaches

  • Membership card for free admittance to all sponsored FABC senior boys & girls all star games and the 2 regional “Futures Shootout” games held in June highlighting the top 20 returning underclassmen for boys & girls.
  • The Rock Basketball offer has changed to $40 per ball up to 12 men’s or women’s basketballs. The much-improved leather c2c ball is totally different synthetic leather than the earlier Rock ball. Many teams this past year used the “Rock” during the regular season, holiday tourneys & shootouts used it as the official ball of their event. You may order over the phone with our certificate information. You must buy with a school purchase order number or by credit card. This is a HUGE savings when you spend $60 per ball for other brands.
