The Broward County Athletic Association (BCAA) is the largest high school athletic conference in Broward County and the second largest in the state of Florida. The BCAA is a unit of the School Board of Broward County overseeing 24 sports programs at member high schools. The BCAA is comprised of 28 public schools, two private schools and one charter school.
The BCAA recognizes the importance and value of education. The term “student athlete” recognizes the importance of being a student first, with athletic endeavors second. All student athletes must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. Students who fall below this standard are ineligible to play. The BCAA gives special recognition annually to scholar athletes. Each and every year the BCAA conducts two scholar athlete banquets. Seven students from each BCAA school are recognized and provided a keepsake gift. In addition, the BCAA distributes over $100,000 in scholarship dollars to scholar athletes. The names and schools of the scholar athletes are listed on the website for the entire school year. These athletes are role models who demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the classroom and field or court of play.
The Broward County Public School system operates a comprehensive interscholastic athletic program at the middle and high school levels. The school system has designated the Broward County Athletic Association (BCAA) as the governing body for high school sports. The objective of the BCAA, in cooperation with the Florida High School Athletics Association, shall be to protect the interests of the high schools and student athletes belonging to and participating in this association, to promote pure amateur athletic sports and to foster such other activities as the organization may decide to sponsor.
The BCAA also directs the operation of the school system’s middle school interscholastic sports programs. At the middle school level, approximately 42 public middle schools may participate in 8 interscholastic sports programs through the Middle School Athletic Association (MSAA). For further information on middle schools, please check out the MSAA link.
The BCAA consists of 33 teams, including 29 Broward County Public Schools, two charter schools (Coral Springs and Pines Charter) and two private schools (Cardinal Gibbons and St Thomas). The BCAA offers a comprehensive sports menu with 24 sports programs.
The BCAA is committed to support the players who make high school sports the best game in town. Over 15,000 high school students and 8,000 middle school students play under the BCAA umbrella. High school sports is about passion, pageantry and love for the game. High school athletes play for the opportunity to represent their school and wear the school’s colors. Through www.bcaasports.com we utilize the Internet as a vehicle to promote high school athletics and student opportunities for post-secondary education. Our website is designed for the fan, the player, the scout and the high school/college coach.
BCAA sports takes you on the field, in the locker room, behind the scenes and up-close with the student athletes. The cornerstone of the website is our award winning Game of the Week (see Magna Award). Each and every week the BCAA will capture the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in high school sports. Game action, coach and player interviews, and of course spirit from our cheerleaders will be featured on video.
