SUMMER COACHES APPROVAL - ALL BENCH PERSONNEL
All individuals who engage in coaching activities at NCAA certified events must take a background check administered by Verified Volunteers prior to participation. Event operators are instructed to require coaches to show a State or U.S. Government issued picture ID during their event check-in procedures to ensure that only approved coaches are granted the ability to participate.
NCAA COACHES CERTIFICATION TEST
Previously when completing the First Advantage application, a randomly selected 10-question quiz served as the educational component. That test has been replaced by a more significant educational component on a separate website - The NCAA Eligibility Center Coaching Education Course, a FREE course developed by the NCAA Eligibility Center and National Federation of State High School Associations.
BASKETBALL CERTIFICATION SYSTEM - TEAM ROSTER
A coach or team administrator will need to register their team in the NCAA Basketball Certification System. The entire team needs to be entered along with the coaches and their approval numbers. Once the team information has been entered, the team will need to opt in to the event(s) in which they would like to participate. This can be completed by clicking "edit team events" on the team page in the BBCS. We will have every approved event posted and the coach/team administration will need to put a check mark next to the event and click the save button.

Reminder: After you register your team and enter your roster, you need to check off which certified events you will be attending. Be sure to click on our tournament name so that we have access to your roster. Coaches are expected to keep their online rosters updated.
