We did not induct anyone into hall of fame this year
Our clinic was more successful this year and we had it on the Sunday after or season started, coaches seem to like that date.
State meet was held at the Tacoma Dome, may be the last year there. WIAA is looking for a new venue. We now have a 3 day tournament.

WIBCA has selected four coaches to induct into the class of 2018 Hall of Fame. This year the celebration will be held at the Nile Country Club in Mountlake Terrace on July 24th. The event will be the 43rd Annual banquet, and Dave Dickson and staff will be hosting a great party honoring the following coaches: Marv Morris (King’s, Shorewood, Shorecrest) Nalin Sood (Mountlake Terrace) and Larry Walker (Lewis & Clark, Everett College). Also, being inducted as an assistant coach is Hal Williams, who was a longtime assistant at Tenino high School. The 2018 Ed Pepple Service Award will be given to Mel Moore for his service, and work at the state tournaments in Yakima. The Pat Fitterer “YOU GOTTA LOVE IT” Award will be giving to Nick Brown (Arlington). The banquet begins with a social hour at 5:00pm, and the ceremony to begin at 6:00pm. Admission to the event is $30 and RSVP one week prior to
May 19th in Chelan, WA is our spring clinic, and October 13-15 in Yakima, WA is our fall clinic. Visit our website for more information. These clinics bring some of the best college and high school coaches and is great way to network with other coaches from all around the state. WIAA clock hours can also be satisfied upon request.
No. At time of meeting was TBD
Representatives Pat McCarthy and Tim Thompson discussed the current RPI format and potential changes to the formula. There was a quality discussion regarding the current pros and cons of the system. The WIAA will continue to seek feedback from coaches and Athletic Directors to better the system if needed. Also mentioned, current WIAA Director Mike Colbrese to retire, and a search will begin for his predecessor.
This year’s All-State Games will be at Curtis High School in University Place, WA on March 17th. This will be the first year of a two-year cycle at this location. Event coordinator Keffrey Fazio has compiled rosters from each classification with help from coaches all over the state. The 1B vs. 2B game will start the event at 2:00pm. Followed by the 1A vs. 2A game (4:00pm) and 3A vs. 4A (6:00pm). Tickets are available at the door. During this event we will acknowledge the Players of the Year (POYS) in each classification and the Mr. Basketball award for the state. These players are voted on by the WIBCA Executive Board, and its association members. Criteria is followed to ensure we are selecting great POYS and Mr. Basketball and that they represent our state in a positive manner.
The 16th Annual WIBCA Showcase is May 5 & 6 at Bellevue College. This event gives unsigned seniors an opportunity to play in front of college coaches. Underclassmen are welcomed to participate. Contact your regional coordinator for the showcase information. This event is sponsored by Watts Basketball visit here.

RPI- What does it look like for volleyball? A survey was sent to coaches to ask them if they were for or against it. The majority of them said they were against it for many reasons including those given by the basketball coaches. The big question is how do tournaments factor in to the RPI? Many coaches are concerned that we will no longer be able to do tournaments.
Warm-up times for state- They changed this year so that there was no shared warm-up time. Cindy Adsit sent out an e-mail asking coaches their opinions on how they want the time divided up.
Held at Auburn Riverside High School on March 10th. Huge success. Over 70 athletes participated. There was talk by coaches on moving the date to the weekend right after state to get more applicants. We are still having a hard time getting athletes to apply and finding coaches has also been difficult. The thought that if we moved the date closer to the season that more athletes would still be excited about volleyball and want to play in it. The pushback is basketball season and it being very close to Thanksgiving.

In light of the WIAA’s move to start putting the Hall of Fame plaques on a digital platform (a move the WSCCCA supports), we have made a change in our policy. The WSCCCA will still honor our HOF inductees with a laser engrave plaque, and we will still do another plaque with a phot and biographical information. However, instead of sending this plaque to the WIAA, we will instead send it to the school where our inductee coached. We feel that more people who may have a connection to the coach will be able to view the plaque at their school. Additionally, as we prepare for next year’s Hall of Fame, we will ask the WSCA for a historical membership list going back to 2003 (15 years). We will use that list to determine if a coach is eligible for our Hall of Fame. Once the WSCCCA has the list, they will update and maintain it and make it available to their Hall of Fame selection committee.
The WSCCCA partnered with the WSCA to host the Track & Field, XC Coaches Association Convention in January at the Hotel Murano. The convention was a success, and we were able to take advantage of the WSCA clock hour program. Next year’s convention looks to combine the Track and Cross Country Awards program into one evening.
The state cross country meet will remain in Pasco. John Crawford and Pasco high school are reducing their role but Chiawana and others are stepping in.
President Clark met with Brian Smith of the WIAA on several issues. The WSCCCA is working to increase the size of the B schoolgirl’s race at the state meet. All races but the B girls have 16 teams, while the B girls have 8. The WSCCCA researched the number of schools participating and have proposed an intermediate increase to 12 teams with the purpose of growing participation. Brian Smith will be presenting this to the WIAA. There was concern by some 2A schools that the state meet schedule was not fair for their classification. The WSCCCA surveyed the 2A schools. Over 80% responded, and 67% did not want a change to the schedule. The WSCCCA conveyed this information to Brian Smith of the WIAA.
The East West All Star Race will be held in conjunction with the Run of the Mill5k in Mill Creek, and our WSCCCA scholarship winners will be announced at that time as well. The scholarship application is open now and invitations to the race have been sent out.
President Joe Clark was re-elected by the WSCCCA executive board for another two-year term. The advisory board elections are going on now. Our advisory board consists of 1-2 members from each WIAA district. Other executive board positions will be up for election next year.

WELCOME WIBCA President Joe Harris welcomes the 2018 fall meeting attendees. First order of business was the spring minutes. The spring minutes were reviewed and discussed by Executive Secretary board member, Keffrey Fazio. A motion was made by Gary Wusterbarth to have the spring minutes approved, it was seconded by Bruce Siebol. The minutes were voted on and approved by all members.

Copies of the budget were handed out to all attendees, and discussed by WIBCA President Joe Harris, and Executive Director Nalin Sood. The status of said budget is on track with projections. Capital Development chair Tim Gaebe spoke on the many ways WIBCA is working hard to find new ways to grow financially to ultimately serve our student-athletes and coaches.

At the Executive Board meeting, many ideas were discussed, as we looked inward at our association and how the board is functioning and executing duties. One idea to help strengthen WIBCA is adding an Ad Hoc position. To do so, WIBCA must change our by-laws. Pat Fitterer moved to change said by-law to potentially add the position. It was seconded by Greg Wirtz. It was voted on and approved. University of Washington Head Coach, Mike Hopkins and Gonzaga Coach, Tommy Lloyd are two potential targets for the position. At this time the position is not filled however.

Voted to induct Barb Graisy (judge) and Terry Wood (Seattle Times reporter) into our Hall of Fame, they will be inducted for 2018/2019 at the state meet in Feb.
This year was much better than last years, better attendance and hopefully better income
we changed the State meet format, we will put Teams and Individual rotating in the same session in the State finals. WIAA approved this change. WIAA is decided on a location for the state meet 2018/2019….Sammamish High School, Bellevue…it is a 3yr contract. So this past years was our last state meet at the Tacoma Dome
WIAA rep Cindy Adsit is doing a great job and working hard for us.
Had a great team that did well and had a great time, had a couple kids make finals and place very well.
Working on getting better league reps and working to distribute information to all coaches. New master email list should help with this too. Summer meeting had 100% attendance.
working on ways to encourage coaches to join WSCA, continue to bring up at pre season meetings as well as District and State meetings. Have created a master email list to directly email all gymnastics coaches, hoping to help membership.

Was in the process of developing my first clinic until changes at both locations changed. Head pro left private facility and new coach at UPS took over. Goal this year is to arrange a tennis specific clinic. Was contacted by the Oregon Coaches Association tennis rep, looking at options/alternatives for our coaches in SW Washington.
Spring- 4A Handford/Columbia Basin Racquet Club, 3A Kamiakin/Tri-City Court Club, 2A Nordstrom, 1B-1A Yakima Tennis Club.
What seem to be the biggest concerns for many of the coaches on the west side of the state is the district playoffs in October/November and state in the Spring split. The other concern is the cost for Indoor facilities that guarantee play for post season in the Fall. 4A & 3A split state locations are also a concern for some.

We inducted the first person into the WSGCA hall of fame since 2000 - Eleen Northcutt from Mt. Spokane. Given to her daughter at a tournament she founded, that is now named after her. It was a great choice for the first entry into the golf hall of fame. We are now accepting nominations for this year.
We held a clinic at White Horse golf club. 7 coaches were in attendance. We are in the process of deciding whether to skip a year and have a clinic every 2 years, or possibly change the date. It is a great learning opportunity, and we have not had great numbers. People who attend give great feedback, but our numbers are low the last weekend of June or first weekend in July.
2A and 4A will be in Spokane area and 1A and 3A will be in Olympia area.
This is the first year of a team format (play 5 count 4). Format will be similar to Cross Country where teams and individuals will have the ability to qualify. This is similar to how college golf is currently played.
We do not currently have an All State game.
2018 Coaches of the year:
Annette LaBissoniere - Interlake High School - Girls

We are inducting three members Tim Irvin of Squalicum, Gary Darnold from Lake Roosevelt, & Mike Mills from Richland. They will be inducted at the track and cross country coaches convention on January 25.
Our track and cross country coaches convention will be held January 25-26 at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma.
This year we had three proposals that came to fruition. One was to increase the B school girls race to 12 teams, up from 8. The hope was that it will increase participation. It was implemented and went well. The second was to change the course to a 2 loop course, keeping the same start and finish. The goal was to provide more viewing opportunities for coaches and spectators. The WIAA and John Crawford were on board and made it happen. The result was well received. The course itself was more challenging. The third was to require that schools verified actiuual competition when reporting their numbers. This has been an issue in the past, with many small schools reporting full teams when in actuality they may have only a partial team. The count was to take place at the 50% mark. This year the WIAA asked us for input, and we provided them with the schools that did not show 5 athletes having competed. As a result, they contacted those schools individually, and then made the allocation determinations.
We are looking to add a race for athletes with disabilities, similar to the Able Bodied races at the state track meet. There already is a wheelchair race.
Our East West All Star Race will be held in July with the Run of the Mill race.
We are seeing an increase in middle school cross country.

This year we inducted Barb Graisy-Adams (judge/coach) and Terry Wood (Seattle Times Sports writer) to our Hall of Fame for their positive contribution for more than 10 years to high school gymnastics. It was a great ceremony and we also invited all former inductees to attend the state meet and be honored at the start, it was fantastic.
Our clinic this year was 2 weeks after the season started, fairly well attended. We are looking at when to hold it this year since we start so much later which puts us close to Thanksgiving. We are gathering suggestions for clinicians and clinic idea.
Our State meet was moved this year to Sammamish High School from the Tacoma Dome, it has been in Tacoma since 1989. It was fantastic at Sammamish. Everyone was many positives.
This year we have worked a lot on the state meet and making sure t is a premier event.
We do a Senior Nationals event and this year we had a record number of applicants
We survived the snow and everyone stepped up as we moved district and league events to get them done when the snow slowed and it time for State.
Hoping to get input from other sports on how you nominate (where, when and how) coach of the year and how you vote. We present at the state meet.

Mike Strong (Yelm, Capital), Phil Lonborg (Timberline, River Ridge), Terry Rice (Stadium) all inducted.
We combine our yearly convention with a series of clinics covering the full range of events and concerns for Track and Field Coaches. 219 Attendees
Well, generally the talented teams that stayed healthy and competed well were the ones that won. What was unique this past year was the boys 4A race, where 5 teams went into the final event all with a chance to win. Incredibly, 4 ended that race tied for the state 4A boys title, with another team one-half point behind. That 5th place team went home with no trophy, despite being .04 seconds from being outright state champions in that last event. It was an unprecedented scenario, so say the least.
We are alway working on ways to make qualifying for and competing in the state meet a better experience for both athletes and coaches. We have two of our executive board members who meet with WIAA, state meet site managers, meet managers, and officials to solve problems and make progress. Recently, we've spend a lot of time paring down the Bound for State document, making the rules clear, improving the qualifying and seeding process, the schedule, and making the meet experience generally better.
We don't do one.
Our sport is in the process of integrating wheelchair and ambulatory athletes into a "para" division which will have its own state champion team. This is a big process and we are working hard to do right by these athletes.

WSWCA celebrated the 35th class of inductees and with the five new members bringing the total number of Hall of Fame members to 142. The Class of 2018 included high school head coaches Craig Hanson (East Valley, Spokane), Jim Meyerhoff (Emerald Ridge) and John Owen (Central Valley, NIC), along with assistant coaches Daniel Robillard (Zillah) and John Voss (Warden). Long-time Mat Classic staff member David Wilson will be recognized with the Babbitt Contributors Award.
The annual WSWCA Northwest Coaches Clinic was held November 2-4, 2018 at the Yakima Convention Center. Logan Stieber (4x NCAA Champion, 2016 World Champion, 2018 World Team member) was the featured clinician. The successful NWCA Coaches Academy also took place on Friday for the third year. Breakout sessions covering different wrestling topics were offered on Saturday and Sunday.
We had 162 signed up and 152 attendees along with 20 or so vendors that attended. New this year we took over sponsorship and were able to attract a more diverse vendor group, that brought in more members and $. Vendors included: SNAP, Paul Swanson, My 247 ed, Suples, Nike, Damaged Ear and All in Journal.
This past year was a perfect storm for the end of the year tournament. The WIAA along with the WSWCA and Mat Classic Directors and staff decided to skip the Regional Tournament and send 32 instead of 16 to the State Tournament on a 10 day notice. We also split Friday, 2A, 3A, and girls went in the morning session, and 1A, B, and 4A went in the afternoon. Shorter day for athletes and coaches, but longer day for workers and referees.
The WSWCA, Mat Classic Directors, and WIAA met on Thursday 3/21/2019 to discuss weight management and the Mat Classic for next year 2020. We are also trying to incorporate a dual meet state championship. With the new configuration of the Tacoma Dome it brought some new challenges and we are planning to make changes for next year.
See above
Rule changes that will hopefully be passed, 30 minutes wait time between matches vs 45 and six matches a day vs five matches a day.

We do not have any inductions finalized, but will be working on this and hope to have something up and running.
We just secured Gold Mountain Golf course in Bremerton as a partner. We will be working with Daryl Metheny the General Manager to produce a quality program. The projected dates are July 1st-3rd.
This is the first year of the new golf format. It is both a team and an individual championship. It will be held at various sites around the state depending on classification.
We have members who have been working with the new state tournament format, and will be in conversation with Andy Barnes to provide feedback.
The USGA made major changes to the rules starting in 2019. These rules will be in effect this season, and at the State tournament.
