To support our organization's goal of creating the best tournament experience for every team manager, coach and family, we have implemented new tournament management software to manage the following:

  • Accommodation Management

    • ALL traveling participants are required to secure accommodations within this software

    • Discounted rates at official tournament hotels have been pre-negotiated

    • For those looking for a specific hotel that is not on our official list, the system will make available all remaining hotel inventory at current online rates.

If you have any hotel related questions, please email Kristin at kristin.kleinschmidt@roomroster.com.


We highly suggest all teams that plan on participating in multiple Elevate Hoops events, to create a login.  This will prevent your program from having to enter this info multiple times.

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST COMPLETE THIS ELECTRONIC WAIVER. The process can takes 2 minutes to fill out and complete, if the athlete is under 18 it needs to be completed by their guardian/parent(s). No one will be allowed to participate without having done so.



Please be advised that this process is much different than it has been in years past.  Please DO NOT procrastinate when it comes to completing this process.

The NCAA Requires all teams that are participating in NCAA Certified events to be registed on their BBCS System NCAA BBCS System Link.  

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. Obtaining your USAB Gold License now will enable you to access the BBCS as soon as your USAB License becomes available.

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


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
