Coach Certification


To sit on the team bench at an NCAA-certified event, you are required to obtain a USA Basketball (USAB) GOLD License, pass the Background Check and clear NCAA Basketball Certification process.

Coaches cannot access the NCAA’s Basketball Certification System (BBCS) until after obtaining the Gold license for NCAA events and passing the Background Check.

To register, go to the USAB website and click log in.  You will then be at the Coach Registration page and you will click the LOGIN button on the top right-hand corner of the screen.

The USAB gold license application fee will include all educational requirements AND the base fee for the Verified Volunteers background check.

For further information about the USA Basketball GOLD License, please go to the USAB website or call 1-844-652-6201 option 1.
