NEW NCAA REQUIREMENTS

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! 

Click here for detailed application instructions from USA Basketball (use the link at the bottom of the USA Basketball instruction page to start your application or go directly to the application here). 

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.

To use the new system you MUST have your USAB Gold License.  If you do not have your Gold License please follow the directions listed above.

To register your team you must read the directions in the ECAG Manual.  The process is new and more complicated than it has been in the past.  Pages 21-57 specifically explain how coaches and athletes create a user account in the new BBCS. 
Go to www.ncaa.org/basketballcertification for the ECAG manual.
