ALL coaches and teams must FIRST obtain or RENEW their USAB gold license number and team Certification BEFORE they can participate in NCAA Certified events.
This USAB link is to be used for RENEWING an existing USAB gold license
or for obtaining a USAB gold license for the first time:
PLEASE READ this important info FROM NCAA
Beginning in 2017, the NCAA made it mandatory that all individuals that engage in coaching activities at an NCAA certified event must obtain a USA Basketball Gold Coach License PRIOR to participation. To complete the program, you will need to do the following: access the internet to create an account, complete the USA Basketball Youth Development Course, complete the NCAA eligibility course, complete SafeSport certification, and pass a criminal background check. A valid credit card is also needed to pay for the USA Basketball Gold Coach License.
However, If you completed this in 2018, what you need to do for 2019 is RENEW your existing USAB gold license and NOT obtain a new one. If a coach obtains a new license, then it will not auto-validate in the BBCS and will delay your access to the BBCS for 2019.
Coaches should allow 2 weeks to process. The 2019 license fees are as follows: Domestic Applicant Annual Fees: $58.00 – If registering before January 1, 2019. $68.00 – If registering in January, February, March, May or June. $125.00 – If registering in the months of April or July as these are high volume processing months. International: $77.00 – If registering before January 1, 2019. $87.00 – If registering in January, February, March, May or June. $142.00 –If registering in the months of April or July as these are high volume processing months.
Once you are approved you are cleared to be on the sidelines from the date of completion through August 31 of each year. When filling out the USJN coaches registration page please enter your USA Basketball Gold Coach License number in the field marked Coaches Approval Number. Please register and/or renew early!
Coaches and athletes should RENEW their previously created BBCS account and NOT create a new account. This is done by logging in to their existing account and updating the information on their profile rather than selecting Register as a New User button
All coaches must also register their teams with the NCAA, which includes coaches' information roster and all events that your team will be attending. This information must be checked off (opt in) in order for you to participate in any open viewing evaluation event. Both of these steps must be completed for ANY AGE team participating in a NCAA Certified Event.
All ATHLETES participating must also go through an online process to be able to play in a certified event as well. Coaches will not be able to put them into their rosters online until their athlete has completed this step.
