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 15U-17U 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.
1. The NCAA basketball certification website (www.ncaa.org/basketballcertification) – because this page includes links to user resource quick-reference guides and the ECAG User Manual including guidelines, legislation and step by step instructions for participants.
2. The BBCS (http://bbcs.ncaa.org) – because both coaches and athletes need to be registered in this database. (Returning users should RENEW their previous account and NOT create a new one.) For team events, coaches will need to use the player/coach registrations to create their bench/roster.
3. The USA Basketball Gold License link (https://www.usab.com/youth/development/coach/process-for-becoming-a-licensed-coach.aspx) - because all individuals involved in coaching activities will need to obtain a USAB Gold License. (Returning users should RENEW their previous account and NOT create a new one.)
