NEW NCAA COACHING REQUIREMENTS - APPLY EARLY!!!

The NCAA recently announced that in order to participate in coaching activities or sit on the team bench at an NCAA-certified event in 2018, coaches are required to obtain a USA Basketball (USAB) GOLD License. This applies to all teams at our certified events.

Teams without the USAB Gold Licensed coaches will not be allowed to create rosters on the BBCS, and will not be able to participate in the NCAA-certified portion of our events.

Allow 3 weeks for processing. APPLY EARLY!

The new NCAA Basketball Certification System (BBCS) is now ready for use.  Got to: http://BBCS.ncaa.org to access the system.  This is the system you will need to access in order to register your team with the NCAA.  You must have your team registered BEFORE you will be allowed to participate in any of our NCAA certified events.
