NCAA TEAM REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS
Team Registration - All teams participating at an NCAA certified event must register online prior to participating in the event. Coaches are expected to keep their online rosters updated.
The same address and telephone number cannot be utilized for multiple athletes. In addition, it is not an acceptable practice for prospects' coaches to substitute their own demographic information for that of the prospective student athlete. It is important that the prospect and his/her family retain the opportunity to exercise control over the recruiting process, so please ensure that each prospect's demographic information is submitted.
Failure register or to submit all required information will result in the team being denied participation in all NCAA certified events. YOUR TEAM WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PLAY IN THE TOURNAMENT if you do not complete this process before you come to the event. Once you have entered your team information on the NCAA site make sure you designate the correct tournament your team intends to attend. A team’s failure to designate our event will result in our inability to access your team’s information.
SPRING & SUMMER COACHES APPROVAL PROCESS
All individuals who engage in coaching activities at an NCAA Certified Event must be approved prior to participation through the NCAA Coaches' Approval Program. ALL coaches MUST be approved EVERY calendar year!

IN ORDER FOR ANY COACH (including assistants) TO SIT ON THE BENCH DURING THE EVENT THIS PROCESS MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE YOU ARRIVE. FOR THE TOURNAMENT TO REMAIN A CERTIFIED NCAA EVENT, THIS PROCESS WILL BE ENFORCED WITH NO EXCEPTIONS. Don't wait to last minute to do this. Some coaches during last spring's and summer’s events had to sit out their first couple of games because they did not complete this process before they arrived.
PARTICIPATING PLAYER RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS
All prospective players participating in the event must reside in:
1. The same state as their team's official address; or
2. A adjoining state, provided that no more than three team member(s) reside in adjoining states.
NCAA Adjoining State Rule Residency Requirements
FOR OUR TOURNAMENT TO REMAIN A CERTIFIED NCAA EVENT WE ARE REQUIRED TO VERIFY PRIOR TO COMPETITION THAT ALL PARTICIPANTS HAVE MET THE RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS.
In situations in which a team includes players from a metropolitan area located on a state border, the team may include more than three team members from adjoining states as long as each additional player resides within the metropolitan area. Residency is determined by the player's legal residence or the legal residence of his parent or legal guardian. An international player may use the legal address of the player's host family, provided the player, for a minimum of one academic year, has been a part of an educational exchange program or has attended high school locally while residing with the host family. Prep school players can use the address of the prep school for residency purposes if they have attended the prep school for at least one school year previous to the tournament.
MANDATORY EDUCATIONAL SESSION
You and your entire team will be required to attend a comprehensive educational session during tournament that will review NCAA initial eligibility standards, gambling, agents and drug use. When you check in your team once you have arrived at main site, you will be assigned a specific time and location to attend this session. All players are required to attend. After you attend this session your team will receive their tournament t-shirts. If you miss your session and you do not attend another session, your team will be eliminated from participating in upcoming event games.
No team coach or player can have contact with any NCAA coach during the tournament. This includes, but is not limited to, the game sites as well as the hotel. At the game sites teams and coaches will be required to enter and sit on the opposite side of the gymnasium from the NCAA coaches. Please cooperate. Our gym site supervisors will strictly enforce this provision, as our NCAA certification depends on it.
In order for a player to be eligible to participate in the event, he must meet one of the following three criteria:
a) have high school eligibility remaining:
b) be going to enroll in his first year of prep school in the fall of 2016 and meet the NCAA residency rule discussed above:
c) be an unsigned graduating senior
