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 2019, coaches are required to obtain a USA Basketball (USAB) License. The 2018-19 USA Basketball Coach License season features two offerings: the Gold Coach License and the Associate Coach License. Each license type carries an associated annual fee. This applies to 15U-17U teams at our certified events.

Teams without the USAB 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

REMINDER:

  • Teams who have not completed all of the above steps WILL NOT be allowed to participate in the NCAA certified portion of the tournament.
    Coaches are expected to keep their online rosters updated. The same address and telephone number cannot be utilized for multiple athletes.
    In addition, it is not an acceptable practice for prospects’ coaches to substitute their own demographic information for that of a prospective student-athlete.
    Failure to register or submit all required information will result in the team being denied participation in all NCAA certified events. See also “Adjoining State & Residency Rules” below.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Adjoining State & Residency Rules: All prospective student athletes participating in an NCAA certified team event must reside in: (1) the same state as their team’s official address; or (2) an adjoining state, provided that no more than three team member(s) reside in adjoining states. This rule applies to US as well as foreign teams. For clarification on all of the NCAA’s rules concerning residency click here.
