3-point comp

Due to COVID restrictions, the three point comp will be limited to just the finals night. Each age group will battle for $75. Teams are able to select one player to shoot in the competition.

At the final,

  • five from the right wing (45° angle from the baseline)
  • five from the top of the arc (same location as qualification phase)
  • five from the left wing (45° from the baseline).

In case of a tie (same points and time), the tied players shoot again.

Safety information

  • We have special COVID safety measures in place to keep everyone safe which will be emailed to all participants.
  • Basketball (like all sports) can be risky and can result in injury. It’s important that everyone acts in a safe and responsible way and acknowledges the risks before signing up.
  • If you are putting yourself or others in danger, behaving inappropriately, being violent or dangerous, you will be asked to leave and your team will be disqualified from the comp.

Participant Waiver

All team members must complete a Participant Waiver Form prior to playing (by a parent/guardian if you are under 18 years old).

A scanned copy or photo must be emailed to (minimum 1 day prior to your heat) or your team cannot participate.

Team timeslot

  • Your team must turn up at call time otherwise your team will be disqualified!
  • Teams will be allocated a time slot to arrive (depending on your age bracket) and estimated finish time (emailed to your team manager after registration is complete).

Team manager

Each team requires a team manager (can be a team member, friend, parent etc).

The team manager:

  • completes the registration form (including the name and email of each team member) and pay the entry fee.
  • is responsible for passing on all information to team members and ensuring the team turns up to the heat at the allocated time.
  • is responsible for making sure all members complete and return a Participant Waiver Form.
