Tournament Format

Youth, Teen, & Adult Division Teams:

Teams will be placed into brackets, or groupings, based on their team characteristics, including: each player's gender, height, age, and playing experience. Teams will receive no fewer than three scheduled games. The tournament will begin with pool play within each bracket. Based on a team's pool play record and other qualifying factors, including tiebreakers, teams may then advance to a seeded single-elimination playoff on the tournament's second day. The two teams advancing all the way through the playoff will compete for the Bracket Championship. Players on the Champion and Finalist teams in every bracket will get awards for their achievement.

Elite Division Teams:

In the Men's and Women's Elite Divisions, teams will be placed into gender specific brackets regardless of each player's age, height or playing experience. Depending on the number of teams, there may be multiple brackets in each Elite Division. Similar to other Divisions, the Elite Division tournament will begin with pool play within each bracket. Based on a team's pool play record and other qualifying factors, including tiebreakers, teams may then advance to a seeded single-elimination playoff within each bracket. The winners of each of these bracket playoffs will then compete in an overall single-elimination Division Championship. There will be a single team crowned Champion in the Men's Elite Division and a single team crowned Champion in the Women's Elite Division.

Team Name

Your team name is limited to 20 characters and letters only. No digits. The system will not allow you to enter a name that has already been used. Tournament officials reserve the right to reject any name deemed to be inappropriate. Team names that have been rejected will be replaced by the team contact's last name.

Team Rosters

Teams may have up to 4 registered players, but must have at least 3 players. Teams that do not have at least 3 players registered by the deadline on August 28, 2022 will not be placed in the tournament. No refunds will be given for incomplete teams not placed in the tournament.

All players must be officially registered. A team found to be using unregistered player(s) may be disqualified from the tournament at the discretion of tournament officials. Players must have proof of identity and age available at all times during the tournament. For youth players, this could be a copy of their birth certificate. Players 16 years and older must have photo ID.

Team Gender

Mixed gender teams will be placed in co-ed brackets if tournament officials determine there are a sufficient number of mixed gender teams to form a specific co-ed bracket. Otherwise, mixed gender teams will be placed in male brackets. For all teams placed in a designated co-ed bracket, members of both genders must be on the court at all times.

Player Height

In non-Elite Divisions, player height, especially that of the tallest player on a team, plays a significant role in how teams are placed in competitive groupings. It is important that each player's height is represented accurately on the team's registration. If a player's actual height differs from what was indicated on their registration, they may be disqualified from the tournament at the discretion of tournament officials.

Player Age

In non-Elite Divisions, player age plays a primary role in how teams are placed in competitive groupings. Please provide accurate ages for each player to ensure teams are matched up as fairly as possible.

  • Youth and Teen teams must select a Division based on the age of their oldest player.
  • Adult 18+ teams must have at least one player 18 years old or above.
  • Adult 35+ teams must have no players younger than 35 years old.
  • Elite 18+ teams must have all players 18 years old or above.

Players must have proof of identity and age available at all times during the tournament. For youth players, this could be a copy of their birth certificate. Players 16 years and older must have photo ID.

Player Changes

Player changes or player information updates can be made any time before the final registration deadline on August 28, 2022. Simply log back into your registration account and replace or edit players as you wish. If you need to change your team's Division at any time after you have completed payment, please contact 3on3@eventuris.net. After the registration deadline on August 29, 2022 and until 3 p.m., September 2, 2022, player changes must be made through a Player Change Request Form and will incur a $20 fee. During this period, except for Elite Division teams, the substituted player must very closely match the age, height, and experience level of the player being replaced. An added player must very closely match the age, height, and experience level of the other players on the team. Tournament officials will review all player change requests during this period and have the right to reject any requests that could negatively impact competitive fairness. You will be notified if your player change request has been denied. Rosters will be locked at 3 p.m. on Friday, September 2, 2022. No player changes will be accepted after this time.
