3 ON 3 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT RULES
The following rules have been designed to ensure fair play for all participants. Each player is expected to understand these rules prior to participation in the tournament. Any questions concerning these rules should be directed to the Chalk Bluff Baptist Church Event Staff.
Prior to the Game
Each team must have three to five players on its roster who have registered their team by the predetermined entry deadline. Additions and/or changes to any roster must be approved by Chalk Bluff Baptist Church Event Staff member and completed prior to the start of a team’s first game of the event. No substitutions are allowed once a team has played its first game of the event. A player is allowed to participate for only one team in each division (14 & under or 14 & over) for the duration of the tournament.
THE TEAM CAPTAIN WILL REPRESENT HIS/HER TEAM AS A SPOKESPERSON AT ALL TIMES, and must verify the score sheet has correct roster prior to each game.
All games must start with three players on each team, unless a team with three players agrees to allow the opposing team to play with only two players.
If a team with a least three players does not allow the opposing team to play with two players, or if the opposing team has zero or one player, that team will be penalized one point per minute after the designated start time up to 10 points. Game is forfeited after 10 minutes.
A coin flip prior to the start of the game will determine which team has the initial possession.
Each player must have a number on their shirt/uniform (numbers made with masking tape are acceptable).
