USAB GOLD LICENSE INSTRUCTIONS AND RESOURCE
2021 NCAA COACHING REQUIREMENTS
The NCAA recently announced that once again in order to participate in coaching activities or sit on the team bench at an NCAA-certified event in 2021, 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 2021 NCAA Basketball Certification System (BBCS) is now ready for use. Got to: NCAA BBCS 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 2021 system you MUST have your USAB Gold License. If you do not have your Gold License please follow the directions listed above.
