Allstate® WBCA Good Works Team®
The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), teaming with Allstate Insurance Company, is pleased to introduce the Allstate WBCA Good Works Team®, to collegiate women's basketball.
Below is a brief explanation of the Allstate WBCA Good Works Team program, and instructions for nominating your candidate.
There are so many compelling stories in your programs for all of the good works your athletes are involved with. This is an outstanding opportunity for the WBCA and Allstate® to join with you to help highlight those individuals whose exemplary actions and associations have made a difference on their campuses, in their communities and beyond.
The Allstate WBCA Good Works Team is composed of college women's basketball student-athletes who make outstanding contributions in the areas of volunteerism and civic involvement. These individuals embody the true spirit of "teamwork" and "giving back" through commendable acts of kindness.
The goal of this program is to provide recognition for these future leaders, their academic institutions, and communities they serve and support.
The Allstate WBCA Good Works Team is selected from nominations submitted by head women's basketball coaches who are current members of the WBCA with assistance from their SIDs. The nominees for the two five-member teams - one composed of players competing in NCAA Division I and the other a combined team representing NCAA Divisions II, III and the NAIA - are announced in March. The members of these two teams are invited by Allstate to the WBCA National Convention and NCAA® Women's Final Four®.
The WBCA and Allstate® will work to recognize members of the Good Works Team locally, regionally and nationally for their selfless efforts.
