Our friends at the NCAA have asked us to share information on the bid process for the 2024 Men's & Women's College Basketball Academies. Please see below:
The NCAA invites prospective hosts to bid on the 2024 Men’s and Women’s College Basketball Academies.
The NCAA College Basketball Academies give prospective men's and women's student-athletes a sample of the college basketball experience. Organized with input from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), these developmental summer academies pair high-level basketball competition with life skills instruction.
In addition to basketball training, skill development, and games, participants and their parents or chaperones will attend life skills courses about NCAA eligibility and compliance; the recruiting process; name, image, and likeness opportunities; agents; the transfer portal; and the pathway to professional basketball opportunities. For more information, please visit https://thecbbacademy.com.
The NCAA is looking for a single location to host both the men’s and the women’s academy from July 22 – July 29, 2024. Bid specifications and pertinent forms can be found at www.ncaa.org/bids and prospective hosts must submit bids through the NCAA Championship Bid Portal at http://championships.ncaa.org.
The site selection process for the academies is on a separate timeline from the NCAA’s championship wide bid process and completed bids must be submitted by Friday, December 1.
Lynne Andrew and Danny Haynor on the NCAA staff have been designated to receive, coordinate, and facilitate the response to any and all questions, requests for clarification, or additional information pertaining to the Academies:
