Florida Association of Basketball Coaches

The Florida Association of Basketball Coaches was born 4 years ago under the leadership of Coach Ed Kershner from Oviedo and Larry Brown, former president of the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches who now resides in the Sunshine State. Membership includes both Men & Women coaches on the high school, junior college, and 4 year college levels. The group was formed to promote basketball on all levels in Florida and has gradually improved on the FABC product. We want to help serve all basketball coaches and honor successes of players, coaches and teams of the past, present, and future.
