NEW NCAA Travel Team Coaches & Player Requirements
Coaches: There are now 3 steps that need to be taken in order for every travel team to be eligible to participate in all NCAA certified events.
Step 1. Coaches Certification
All coaches and adults on every travel team bench will have to be certified by new USA Basketball guidelines (USA Basketball Youth Coaches Gold License). This include a background check as well as completion of 3 different video classes. Please use the following NCAA step-by-step instructions: www.ncaa.org/enforcement/basketballcertification
Step 2. NCAA Travel Team Registration
After receiving your USA Basketball Coaches Gold License, all travel team head coaches or directors must register their teams on the new NCAA Basketball Online System. Please use the following NCAA step-by-step instructions: www.ncaa.org/enforcement/basketballcertification
Step 3. NCAA HS Player Registration
After you create your new NCAA Team Registration, all of your players will need to create NCAA individual player registrations (which now includes viewing the NCAA educational course online). Please have your athletes use the following NCAA step-by-step instructions:
ALL Players must register with this new NCAA system to be eligible to play in ANY Live Period event (April or July). Under the new rules, the required NCAA Educational Video will now be shown ONCE (at time of player online registration). No longer will players or teams have to sit through video sessions at all events as has been the case in the past.
This online registrations take some time. DO NOT wait till April to get these requirements out of the way!
