You will not be able to create a team roster prior to obtaining your USA Basketball GOLD License. So, you should go to USA Basketball Gold License Application Link and start that application right away.

(Returning users should RENEW their previous account and NOT create a new one.)

All Coaches of these teams must obtain a USA Basketball Gold License, this process is a two-part phase. There is a background check & then an extensive video education portion. Please give yourself a minumum of 2-3 hours to complete this, you are able to break it up and complete it in segments if need be USA Basketball Gold License Application Link.  (Returning users should RENEW their previous account and NOT create a new one.)


Once a coach in your program has received a USAB Gold License, then you may move on to starting the NCAA BBCS Team Registration Process. In order to complete this they have prepared a system users manual that is available at the following link. NCAA BBCS ECAG Manual Link
