CBPA Celebrates One-Year Anniversary, Looks to Build on Momentum in Providing Greater Support for Current and Future Parents of Men’s and Women’s College Basketball Players


COLUMBUS (November 24, 2021) – Today the College Basketball Parents Association (CBPA) celebrated the anniversary of the organization launching at the start of the 2020-21 college basketball season. The CBPA enters its’ second year as a national community-building resource established with the purpose of connecting, educating and empowering parents with guidance and support as they assist their student-athletes in maximizing their collegiate experience. Membership in the CBPA is free to college and high school basketball parents.

“The CBPA continues to evolve as a national resource for college and high school parents,” said CBPA President Tonya Morrison, parent of University of Georgia Women’s Basketball player Que Morrison. “We’re proud of the strides we’ve made in our first year, but with the amount of change on the horizon for college athletics, we must continue to touch more parents and be consistent in providing resources to help families navigate the landscape.”

In its first year, the CBPA steering committee and staff accomplished several strategic objectives that it will look to build upon in its second year of leadership for member parents nationally:

“From the start, it was intentional for the CBPA to not just support college basketball families, but high school basketball families as well,” said LaQuita and Deon Harmon, CBPA Vice Presidents and parents of Oregon Men’s Basketball guard De’Vion Harmon. “We have been encouraged by the number of high school parents that have become members in our organization and will look to do more in providing support to those future college basketball families, so they feel better prepared in their decision-making for the future.”

As CBPA begins its second year of operation, the Association is proud of the diverse and inclusive nature of the 20 families involved in the current Steering Committee to date. The Association will continue to develop its comprehensive leadership group in that spirit, reflecting ethnic, gender and geographic diversity as well as the inclusion of parents of players from all walks of men’s and women’s college basketball.
