Coaches vs. Cancer is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) that empowers basketball coaches, their teams, and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The program leverages the personal experiences, community leadership, and professional excellence of basketball coaches nationwide to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living through year-round awareness efforts, fundraising activities, and advocacy programs

IAABO is a proud sponsor of the annual Coaches vs Cancer Holiday Tournament, held annually at Meramec Community College, which showcases some of the top basketball teams in the St. Louis area. IAABO officials referee all games and also are very active in the organization of the tournament itself.
