  • NOTE:  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.

Coaches and athletes should RENEW their previously created BBCS account and NOT create a new account.  This is done by logging in to their existing account and updating the information on their profile rather than selecting Register as a New User button.


ECAG use manual (


In order to operate an NCAA-certified event or league, participate in coaching activities or sit on the team bench at an NCAA-certified event in 2018, you are required to obtain a USA Basketball (USAB) GOLD License. Be sure to indicate that you will participate in NCAA-certified activities on your USAB application.

CAUTION – Failure to identify yourself as a participant in NCAA-certified activities on your USAB application will prevent you from accessing the required coach/operator sections in the BBCS resulting in your inability to operate an NCAA-certified event/league or coach in an NCAA-certified event.


You should allow a minimum of three weeks to complete the required USA Basketball’s Gold Licensing process.

The USAB License applies to the academic-year calendar. So, the license will be valid from the date the license is granted until August 31.  (Previously, NCAA approvals were conducted on an actual calendar year with all approvals expiring on December 31.) That means you can apply now and get your approval for Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 to avoid any problems with your application. You can actually APPLY TODAY!


  • Base fees for the USAB Gold License for the 2017-2018 season are as follows:
    • US Applicants:
      • Sept 1-Dec 31, 2017: $55 (plus additional background check fees if applicable)

The NCAA will be using a new technology platform in 2018 and you will NOT be able to access the Basketball Certification System (BBCS) before you have a USA Basketball GOLD License. So until you have completed this process and been granted a USAB Gold License number, you will not be able to submit an event/league application nor create a team roster.

Stone Gettings, Cornell

"The WCE camps gave me the opportunity to showcase my game in front of hundreds of college coaches and played a pivotal role in my decision to play Division I basketball at Cornell University".


Tommy McCarthy, Harvard

"The WCE camps and events that I attended throughout my high school career 100% helped me get to where I am today.  The camps allow you to play against top talent and to take your game to a higher level.  They also foster an amazing learning environment for players on and off the court.  You will be taught skills you need on the court as well as in life (something that is often overshadowed at other camps).  I would recommend WCE events to anybody who wants to get exposure and play at the college level and anybody who is anxious to get better".


Connor Wilson, Beaver Dam, KY

"I've been to some of the top camps in the country and West Coast Elite offered the best exposure and competition I've ever played against. Definitely was one of the best experiences of my life".


Cameron Satterwhite, Loyola (Chicago)

"I really liked the camp. The teams were set up well. The exposure was high and there was good competition. Courtside films was a great addition to showcase and film talent. One of the best I had ever been to".


Darrell Morris, father of Jeffery McClendon, Loyola Marymount University

"West Coast Elite Basketball / Ryan Silver are connected to every media outlet in the country.  Scout, Rivals, ESPN, and many other top media cover WCE events.  This was very important to my son Jeffery getting a scholarship at LMU".


Frank Jackson, Duke

"I have been going to Ryan's camps for the last few years and love the exposure given, the level of competition, and the details that go into his events. I know his camps helped me improve my game as well as opening many opportunities".
