USAB GOLD LICENSE INSTRUCTIONS AND RESOURCES

Click Here to renew an existing USAB gold license or for obtaining a USAB gold license for the first time:

Team Coaches should RENEW their existing USAB gold license and NOT obtain a new one. If the coach obtains a new license, then it will not auto-validate in the BBCS and will delay their access to the BBCS for 2018.

**MUST READ**Coach and Operator Responsibility Regarding Athlete Residency Documentation Upload Requirement

Coaches and Operators:

As of March 1, 2018 the BBCS has been updated to require athletes to upload residency documentation regarding specific address types:

At a boarding school
With a host family
With a legal guardian
Other

A red triangle with an exclamation point icon will appear when one of these address types has been used on the athlete’s profile, if multiple address are on the profile, or if the athlete chose “Other” as an address type. “Other” addresses will require a description, but not require document uploads.

Coach : Icon is visible next to the athlete’s name on the bench tab and in the roster pop-up window.

Operator: Icon is visible next to the athlete’s name on both the Edit Roster and View Roster Details modes of the Participant List for an event.
Hovering over this warning icon reveals this message: “Investigate the address(s) further to ensure that the athlete meets the residency requirements to participate with the team and avoid potential violations.” This is an indication of your responsibility as a coach/operator to ensure that the address being utilized by the athlete for participation with the team is compliant with the ECAG Residency Requirements. [SEE: Event Residency Requirements posted in the User Resource section of www.ncaa.org/basketballcertification (also available on page 2017 of the ECAG user manual).]

Clicking on the athlete’s name will reveal all information on the athlete’s profile and the uploaded documents can be accessed. Coaches will access the information from the bench tab and Operators will access the information from the View Roster Details mode.

Coach : Coaches for the team are responsible for ensuring that the documents uploaded prove that the address is compliant with the ECAG Residency Requirements. If documentation is insufficient, the coach should require the athlete to upload additional supporting documentation. [Note: Coaches will still have to enter justifications when flagged to do so but supporting documentation may not be necessary if the athlete has uploaded the necessary documentation. See information about Justification procedures that begin on page 74 of the ECAG user manual.]

Operator : Operators are responsible for ensuring that all teams/athletes participating in their event are complaint with the ECAG Residency Requirements, but in 2017, the BBCS was not always flagging potential problems. With the addition of this icon, operators should be more easily able to identify potential issues that require follow-up and obtain necessary documentation to ensure the event is operating in compliance.
