Source Hoops has consistently produced some of the premier grassroots events of the summer. Participating teams know that the competition will be fierce and college coaches from ALL levels will be in attendance. Unlike most grassroots events, we prefer quality over quantity. Our format ensures maximum exposure to college coaches and media attendance.
College coaches rave about how easy it is to evaluate prospects at our live period events and look forward to attending every year.

NCAA CERTIFICATION GUIDELINES
The NCAA Certification and Approvals Group will be launching a BRAND NEW Basketball Certification System (BBCS) for the 2017 year.
USAB License Required for BBCS Access
Until you have obtained a USAB GOLD License, you WILL NOT be able to perform any activity in the BBCS beyond creating a user account. This mean that you WILL NOT be able to:
It will no longer be permissible for a team administrator who is not approved as a coach to enter information into the BBCS.
Do NOT Procrastinate!
You should allow a minimum of THREE WEEKS to complete the required USAB GOLD Licensing process. You need to also allow yourself more time to complete the educational requirements. There are 3 educational videos that are part of the GOLD license that you will have to complete. These courses are more robust than what we have had in the past. You cannot click through them or have them on in the background because if you do not pass the quiz at the end, you will have to start the quiz over again. And remember, you will not be issued your GOLD License until you have successfully completed these educational videos.
Further, until ECAG has validated your USAB GOLD License number AND verified that you are eligible to participate in NCAA-certified events/leagues within the BBCS, you will be denied access to complete any of the activities required of coaches/operators.
If you wait until right before an event to begin this process, you will more than likely NOT BE CLEARED IN TIME TO COACH in the event, which may mean YOUR TEAM WILL LOSE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE DUE TO YOUR FAILURE TO PLAN AHEAD.
USAB GOLD LICENSE APPLICATION
The USAB GOLD License application fee is $55 annually for US applicants and $77 for international applicants (plus additional background check fees if applicable) and will include your educational requirements AND your Verified Volunteers background check. NOTE : Some states and/or counties charge a fee to access your records and you will be required to pay these pass-through fees when you complete the Verified Volunteers portion of the application. These fees will be paid to the state/county and cannot be avoided.
While a USAB GOLD License is required to operate an NCAA-certified event or league, participate in coaching activities or sit on the team bench at an NCAA-certified event, the license on its own does NOT make one NCAA-eligible. The NCAA reserves the right to withdraw current or deny future opportunities to participate in or benefit from the NCAA-certification and approval process if he/she fails in any of the following areas:
