Arizona Elite Basketball Club, Inc. presents


April 21-23, 2017
Glendale, Arizona


Thank you all for day one at the Adidas Gauntlet Phoenix! There's obviously a tremendous amount of talent this weekend and a great showing of College Coaches watching your girls.

Having 20 courts at the University of Phoenix Stadium is awesome and the weather couldn't be better but we're always looking for ways to improve our events and we try hard to listen to our participating teams. Therefore, two important changes we will be implementing are:

  1. All future Arizona Elite events we will be changing to stopped clocks. Every division, every game will have stopped time. We realize the importance of getting all players exposure and we feel this is the best way to do that.
  2. Although we have qualified, certified trainers at both ends of the stadium, and EMS on site, we'll be doubling the number of staff due to the large number of teams.
Thank you for your time and we will see you all tomorrow!

Please check your schedule as some minor changes have occurred due to a late drop out.

Check-in Procedure:

  1. All Coaches must check in at the University of Phoenix Stadium Thursday between 2 - 9 pm. One coach cannot check-in all coaches.
  2. Bring valid ID.
  3. Players are welcome to check out the stadium but not required.
  4. Coaches not on the roster will not be allowed free entry.
  5. The NCAA process is new for 2017 as you know so please make sure your roster is accurate and complete to expedite the check-in process.
  6. If you have your Gold License you still may not be approved by the NCAA. They have a final signoff on all coaches. If you're on your team roster you're good to go.
Thank you all and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Coaches please see the attachment on how to create a Team.
As a coach complete your BBCS requirements. Then add all coaches and players to your bench for all of your organizations teams. From there you will create your individual team rosters and pull coaches and players from your bench. You will be directed to add Team Names during the process. As of midnight the night before the event the rosters will be locked and cannot be edited.
Please get your athletes completed and your coaches completed as we aren't able to allow anyone to participate if not done so. Thanks,

Gary Pedersen

Please don't delay all Coaches and Players. Each Coach AND Player must create their own account on the new BBCS System.

April is coming fast so please get this done now. We cannot allow any coach or player to participate if they aren't complete with their online requirements. Thanks,

Gary Pedersen
