All of the steps below are MANDATORY. Teams without approved coaches and rosters on the NCAA BBCS will not be allowed to participate in the NCAA-certified portion of this event.
Step 1 – Coaches obtain USA Basketball Gold Licenses: Coaches of 15U-17U boys’ teams must renew their existing USA Basketball Gold Coach License or if they have not done this before they must obtain a USA Basketball Gold Coach License. This requirement applies to coaches, assistant coaches, and any bench personnel (non-players). Allow 3 weeks for processing. You will not be able to enter your rosters on the new BBCS website (step 2) until you complete this process.

Only coaches who have completed the above Step 1 will be allowed to create accounts on the BBCS. Using this tool is somewhat easy, just takes some time and attention. Here are some helpful links:
Instructions for ATHLETES - Athlete address information must be correct and be the address where the athlete physically resides. PO boxes are not acceptable unless the athlete lives in a rural district.
