Basketball Certification

New User Account Registration

Athlete registration must be submitted by a participant of at least eighteen (18) years of age or the parent/legal guardian of any minor participant with the right to submit such information on behalf of the minor.


You will need to have an active USAB License Number in order to register with the NCAA Basketball Certification System (BBCS). Until you enter your license number here, you cannot create a user account. (The NCAA will also need to verify your approval before you create a team bench/roster or submit an event/league application.)

For each address entered, make sure that you have selected the address type closest to your current circumstances. The "other" option should be avoided for most athletes.

  1. At a boarding school = lives on campus of the school he/she attends.
  2. With my parent(s) = lives with a parent.
  3. With a host family = lives with nonparent family, friend, foster family, foreign exchange program host family, etc. Will require a transcript showing the athlete attends school where he/she lives.
  4. With a legal guardian = lives with a COURT-APPOINTED legal guardian. Power of Attorney is not enough.

My Eligibility Center Information

You are required to have a valid NCAA Eligibility Center Account before registering with the Basketball Certification System (BBCS).

If you don't have an account with the Eligibility Center:

  • Go to and create your account. There are two types of Eligibility Center (EC) accounts. The Division III or Undecided profile account is FREE while the DI/DII Certification Account will require payment ($90 Domestic/Canada and $150 International). Either option is acceptable to proceed with your BBCS registration.
  • When you register with the Eligibility Center you will receive a 10-digit NCAA identification number (NCAA ID), which can be found in the upper right-hand corner of your account. You'll need this number to complete your BBCS registration.
  • Have questions about creating an Eligibility Center account?
    Contact Eligibility Center Customer Service at 877-262-1492 (toll free).

Once you have an Eligibility Center account:

  • Enter your Eligibility Center (EC) information below and finalize the submission of your BBCS account. The BBCS will immediately validate the accuracy of your EC information.
  • If the NCAA ID cannot be found, your BBCS registration will NOT be saved. Follow the instructions for "If you don't have an account with the Eligibility Center" above and then come back to register in the BBCS.
  • If you forgot your NCAA ID, log in to your EC account at Your NCAA ID can be found in the upper right-hand corner of your account.
