The Basketball Certification process provides activity operators who agree to operate their activities in accordance with the applicable legislation and certification requirements the opportunity to receive League Certification to allow the participation of Division I student-athletes and/or Event Certification to allow NCAA Division I coaches to attend and observe prospective student-athletes who are participating in the activity. Event Certification has a post-event requirement as well.
ALL applications to request NCAA-certification of an event/league and ALL roster building will be done in a NEW technology platform in 2017.
NOTE: You will not be able to submit an event/league application nor create a team roster prior to obtaining your USA Basketball GOLD License. So, you should go to www.usab.com/NCAALicense and start that application right away. Obtaining your USAB Gold License now will enable you to access the BBCS as soon as it becomes available.
BBCS Launch Announcement emails will be sent in the three stages outlined below. Once you have received your invitation, you can click here for access: https://BBCS.ncaa.org
