Hi coaches and mangers for teams participating in the 2019 Basketball on the Bayou,

We want to make the check in process as quick and smooth as possible for all of you. So here is a list of things to double check to insure that it is:

1.) All coaches must bring ID to check in. 3 certified coaches per team. Players do not have to come to registration. Please do not bring the team to the check-in area, they will not be allowed. Coaches will sign off all rosters. 

2.) All coaches must be NCAA certified and listed on the official NCAA roster . We only give credentials to certified coaches.

3.) Please double check all NCAA rosters - (double check that all of your players have been added to your roster and your jersey numbers are correct..)

4.) Please note that players are only allowed to play with 1 team the entire tournament (they can NOT be listed on 2 rosters). 

5.) Players will have to show UNIFORMS  in order to get into the facility. NO EXCEPTIONS!!



Rosters for the collegiate recruiting guides will be printed directly from the NCAA BBCS. The building of your roster requires your athletes' participation.

Rosters must be opted in and built on the NCAA BBCS . This is strictly enforced; teams failing to comply will be removed from the event and no refunds will be issued.

Make sure the numbers are correct to your team(s) uniforms in the NCAA BBCS system.




No person will be admitted into any venue without proper credentials. Credentials will be issued for players and coaches who are listed on your roster on the final date of submission.

All other persons, including parents, boosters, fans, statisticians, videographers, managers, etc. will be required to pay an admission fee, display a paid credential, and sit in a designated area. This is designed to provide strict segregation between athletes, NCAA-approved coaches, fans, and visiting college coaches.

Extra player or coach credentials do not exist. For this reason it is critical to have your roster submitted and updated.

Spectator credentials will be placed on the arm by an event staff member. Please do not complain as no credentials will be allowed to be placed on purses, key chains, etc. Fans and/or family members wearing coach or player credentials will be removed from the event and not permitted to return.



All teams are responsible for bringing their own basketballs for warm-up. The designated home team may select the ball used for competition. 

NO OUTSIDE GATORADES OR POWERADES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE BENCH. No outside food will be allowed in the facilities.  Only bottled drinks allowed on the bench.



A certified athletic trainer will be on duty at all times during the event. Athletes who wish to be taped prior to games must provide their own athletic tape and pre-wrap and arrive at least one hour prior to the scheduled game time. There are athletic trainers on call at off-site
