Basketball Certification

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.
