All of the steps below must be completed by all teams in order to participate. Teams without approved coaches and rosters on the NCAA BBCS will not be allowed to participate.
 

Step 1 – Coaches obtain USA BBall Gold Licenses: Coaches of all teams must obtain a USA Basketball Gold Coach License with NCAA Status.

Instructions for ATHLETES. The NCAA has also created a handout you can give to your athletes on how to register on the BBCS.
 

Step 3 – Build Your Team Roster: The head coach must then invite their assistant coaches and players to be on their roster through the BBCS website.  Click here for detail information on the new NCAA process and how to build your team rosters: http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/2017ECAG_UserManual_20170420.pdf

REMINDER: Teams who have not completed all of the above steps WILL NOT be allowed to participate in the tournament.

BBCS Account Creation

To create an account in the BBCS, coaches must register.  Adult registration step by step instructions begin on page 38 of the manual.

  • New accounts must be created in the new BBCS: old log-in information does not work.
  • All coaches must create an account, not just the head coach.
  • All athletes must create an athlete account. 
    • Athlete account creation directions on page 31 of ECAG manual
  • Your username is your registration email address.
  • Passwords must contain 8 characters, upper and lower case, and a symbol (!@#$).   Passwords cannot contain a word found in the dictionary.  For example, the word "blue" is not allowed but you can do a variation on the word and it would accepted: blu, blu3, b!ue, or another variation.
  • Your password locks after three failed attempts.  Use the password reset button, do not create another account.

Team Building directions for the coach are located on page 45 of the ECAG manual.  Please note:

  • The new BBCS uses a "bench" concept, which enables the coach to have a pool of available athetles and assistant coaches.
  • The coach cannot search for and invite an assistant coach to their "bench" until that assistant coach has their (1) USAB Gold license, (2) created a user account in the BBCS, and (3) been verified by the NCAA.
  • The coach cannot search for and invite themselves to their own "bench".  The coach is automatically added to the "bench".
  • The coach cannot search for and invite an athlete to their "bench" until that athlete has (1) created their account in the BBCS, (2) viewed the educational video, and (3)completed their school information on their profile.
  • The coach cannot search for and invite an athlete whose address is not consistent with the NCAA residency requirements.  Athletes from a non-adjoining state or from a different country cannot be added to the "bench".  Coaches will be required to provide documentation in advance if the athlete's residency/demographic information is flagged as questionable.

The coach can create multiple rosters for an event.  Once the coach opts into an NCAA-certified event, the team name, team address and roster can be added based on the athletes and coaches on the "bench".  If the coach has more than one team going to that event, they can opt in for a second time and enter their next team's information.
