We want to see which players are going to get after it and WORK! Who are the gritty ballers on the east coast that are going to make winning plays and do whatever it takes to win at all costs!

Court Dimensions: Games will be played within half court spacing. Half court, sideline, & baseline are out of bounds and will result in a check ball situation. The check up logo is approximately 5 feet behind the 3 point line and is where the ball should be checked every time.
All teams should have a total of 4 players (3 + 1 substitute) 3x3 is a very high intensity game and we highly suggest teams bring a sub to compete.
Note: game must start with minimum of 3 (three) players!
Game Duration/How to win: Each game will be 10 minutes in duration, regular playing time. All games are played to 21 points. If a team does not get to 21 points, then the winner is determined by who has the higher score at end of duration (like normal basketball game) Ex. Team A is up 16-13 against Team B once the horn sounds & 10 minutes is up, Team A is the winner of the game.
Scoring: All two point baskets are worth one point and all baskets behind the arc will result in 2 points. All games will be up to 21 points or whatever the highest score is after a 10 minute duration.
Tie Game/Overtime: If the game is tied at the end of 10 minutes, both teams will stop possession and flip a coin to determine new possession. Once a possession is determined and overtime starts, it will be the first team that scores to determine a winner!
Shot Clock: There will be a shot clock of 16 seconds every possession. This creates a very high pace, up tempo basketball game where teams will need constant movement & need to be aggressive to make a play quick. If the shot clock runs out it will resolved in the defensive teams possession and a check ball at the top of the key.
Possession Following A Basket: Once a basket is made it’s always defensive possession as the defense should be ready to immediately collect the basketball underneath the hoop. Once the ball is collected, players must clear the ball behind the arc by either dribbling it or throwing an outlet pass to a player behind the arc. The defensive team is not allowed to play for the ball inside the "no-charge semi-circle" area underneath the basket. Once the ball leaves that area, they can hound the ball handler and give them full pressure to prevent the clear.
Clearing the ball: Clearing the basketball is considered to be taking the basketball back with BOTH FEET behind the line. If one foot is on the line when you clear the basketball, it’ll result in a violation.
Possession following a defensive rebound or steal: Ball MUST be taken back and dribbled/passed to behind the arc every time following a steal, block, or shot attempt that doesn’t clear the rim.
Possession Following Jump Ball: For a jump ball situation, Defensive possession will take place right underneath the hoop.
Ball will need to be dribbled or passed to a player behind the arc as always.
Free Throws/Fouls: Every time someone is fouled in the act of shooting, players will receive one foul shot and depending on whether they shoot a 1 or 2 pointer, the free throw will be worth that amount of points. Ex. Someone fouled behind the arc in the act of shooting will receive 1 foul shot worth 2 points. Someone fouled in the act of shooting inside the arc will relieve 1 foul shot worth 1 point.
Substitutions: In dead ball situations, prior to the check ball, The substitute can enter the game after his teammate steps off the court behind the end line opposite the basket. Substitutions require no action from the referees or table officials. You may substitute in time frames of your choice and there is no playing time requirements.
Foul Limit: Each team is allowed up to 7 fouls before there will be a 1 shot bonus. This is a very physical style of play but the game will still be called the right way!
Personal Foul Limit: Players can not foul out and there will be no personal fouls.
Officials: Each court is presented one official with experience that is familiar with 3x3 rules.
Table Officials: Up to 3 (scorer, scoreboard operator, shot-clock operator)
Timeouts: Each team will receive 1 timeout per team
