If you are coaching in an NCAA-certified event, or operating an NCAA-certified tournament, you will need to obtain a USA Basketball Gold Coach License. A valid and current USA Basketball Gold Coach License is required by the NCAA to use the BBCS, and assistant coaches and anyone on the bench needs a gold license.
Once you have obtained your gold coach license, your information will be sent to the NCAA and verified in their system. Please allow one to two business days for this transfer to occur.
You also will need to register on the NCAA's BBCS, where you will provide your eight-digit USA Basketball license number. This number only appears once you have completed the license process.
