Official Rules for the RBA\Parks & Rec 3 on 3 Tournament
1. Each team consists of a maximum of five players (three players and two substitutes). Teams will be grouped into divisions based on the information provided on the registration form. Team captains will be held accountable for any false information.
2. The tournament is not responsible for determining a player’s eligibility as it pertains to the University Interscholastic League (UIL), the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) or any and all other governing bodies associated with high school and collegiate athletics.
3. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of four games,(more depending on # of teams entering) unless the withdrawal of another team forces your team to receive a bye. The first team to reach 11 points, with at least a two-point lead will be declared the winner. In the case of a tie at 11 points, the teams will play a sudden-death overtime, with the team getting a 2 point lead declared the winner. A coin-flip will determine the first possession in sudden death.
4. All Players must register individually but an area is provided to indicate teammates and Captains. Tournament reserves the right to limit the number of teams. Early registration encouraged.
5. No roster changes are allowed after your first game! We reserve the right to reject any player substitutions and to disqualify a player and/or team for use of non-roster players, unauthorized substitutions, submission of false information, and/or bad sportsmanship. The Tournament staff may place additional players on teams. This is done to accomodate solo players but no team will have more than 5 players.
6. The tournament enforces a “zero tolerance” policy as it relates to fighting and physical violence. Teams involved in fighting of any kind will be disqualified from the tournament.
7. Players will receive 2 different colored official tournament T-shirts to be worn during games.
8. If a player is fouled in the act of shooting and makes the basket, the basket counts and the ball changes possession. A missed shot due to a foul, returns the ball to the offense.
9. Flagrant or continuous misconduct may result in the dismissal of the offending player. If the court monitor rules a foul was flagrant, the player fouled will shoot one free throw and retain possession. Two flagrant fouls will result in the automatic ejection from the game.
10. Each team will be allowed two 45-second timeouts.
11. Dunking is permitted during official game play.
12. In the event of poor weather, games may be shortened or postponed. Announcements will be made at the event and through cooperation of the local media.

14. The ball will change possession after all made baskets and must be taken back to behind the mid court line. Failure to take it back beyond the mid court line will result in the loss of possession and the loss of any points resulting from that possession. It is not a violation unless a shot is attempted prior to taking the ball behind the mid court.
15. After all fouls, free throws, made baskets or if the ball is out-of-bounds, the ball will be taken out above the mid court line. An opposing player must check the ball before it is put into play. The ball must be passed to a teammate to begin play.
16. Before games, both teams will warm up for two minutes. A five-minute forfeit allowance will be enforced. The Court Supervisor will have the final decision.
17. The team captain is expected to represent his/her team. If there is a dispute, which needs to be resolved, a Court Supervisor will come to your court to handle the situation. The Court Monitor or Court Supervisor’s decision is final for the purpose of that game. Once play resumes after a disagreement, the problem is considered a dead issue. .
