The Bedford County Athletic Association (BCAA) is made up of the schools who were part of the disbanded Bedford County League.
It was formed to urge cooperation between the schools and the BCAA County Cup is given to the school that accumulates the most points by finishing high in the league standings and the post-season, then dividing that point total by the total number of sports that school offers in that season.
