SHOOTERS CAN SIGN UP IN 3 WAYS

VERIFIED TEAM

Booking is done by one representative of the shooters (parent, coach, etc.), but the head coach verifies and identifies current rec league/AAU/Travel Ball teammates or young athletes from last year’s roster. 

 

The team needs to have a website, social media, or other verifiable documentation upon request. Multiple intrasquad teams can register which increases the chances of placing and receiving prizes.

UNVERIFIED TEAM

Essentially, these teams are comprised of friends, family members, or co-workers within the same age group (and same gender if applicable) who want to enter the shootout together.

UNATTACHED

Similar to runners in track and field, unattached shooters enter the shootout without a connection to a team nor anybody in mind, but still want to show off their skills! They will be randomly assigned with other shooters.

FORMAT

This shootout is mainly a leaderboard-style, asynchronous shooting competition with heats similar to track and field, as teams choose the time slots that work best for them within each round. The top 2 teams from each division advance to the finals. Finals for each division make up the main event - synchronous, head-to-head team shooting to see which teams have the best and biggest bucket getters!

For the leaderboard round, shooters within our 14U, 17U & Adult divisions "take their best shot" at advancing as they shoot on our Dr. Dish Shooting Machines! There is a maximum 4-minute warmup for each heat during the leaderboard round. There is 8 minutes of catch-and-shoot 2-pointers and 8 minutes of off-the-dribble 2-pointers. The last 8 minutes will be catch-and-shoot or off-the-dribble 3-pointers. 

 

For the 11U division (3rd - 5th Graders, Co-Ed), we use our IC3 Shot Trainers with the rim set at 9 or 10 feet to focus on the proper arch needed for their jump shots. Each team chooses their height before their heat or head-to-head competition starts. We also have modular partitions strategically located in front of the 3-point line to encourage this age group to master the mid-range as younger athletes tend to shoot from their hip or over their head and develop bad habits that can take a long time to correct. In short, this shooting competition includes accountability so participants gain confidence with better shot mechanics early on as they grow and get stronger!

 

DURATION OF ROUNDS

 

11U

30-MINUTE HEATS (LEADERBOARD ROUND)

45-MINUTE FINALS 

14U, 17U & ADULTS

30-MINUTE HEATS (LEADERBOARD ROUND)

60-MINUTE FINALS 

The leaderboard round consist of catch-and-shoot and off-the-dribble shooting.

The finals have the same aforementioned drills along with special segments for the best 2 versatile shooters (Dynamic Duo) and best scorer (The Closer).

The Dynamic Duo rapidly fires off shots just before going through a pick-and-pop series. The Closer finishes up with catch-and-shoot shots, and then "game winner" shots with various isolation-moves.

 

It's important to mention that The Closer doesn't have to be a part of the Dynamic Duo segment and all of the made shots by The Closer count as 1-pointers (free throws, obviously) 2-pointers, and 3-pointers (so choose your Dynamic Duo and Closer wisely)! 

IMPORTANT NOTES

If a team or unattached shooter misses their heat that they signed up for, there is no guarantee that there will be another time slot to shoot (especially if the deadline for the end of a round is fast approaching).

 

For all sponsors and anybody who desires to donate, all payments are made via our payment processing system embedded in the Typeform survey. However, if more information is needed, we'll also accept cash and EFT processing systems (CashApp, Zelle, etc.).

 

Upon completion of the survey, the representative for the booking party will be granted a link to sign up via our branded Calendly page (only our staff can view the information of who has signed up in certain time slots). The email that was submitted in the Typeform for the representative will be used for signing up for their preferred time slot. 

 

Unattached shooters will be added to teams according the order in which they have signed up. We email participants and disseminate each other’s contact information with the purpose of coordinating the most suitable time slot. We accept registration for unattached shooters until October 13th @ 11:59pm so we can allow for newly grouped participants to coordinate which time slot works best for them even on the last day of the first round (deadline is October 14th @ 8:29pm).

 

Up to 2 shooters can be added as substitutes, but each team's roster needs to be finalized before the start of the finals. However, all shooters who have participated during the Leaderboard Round will receive a first or second-place prize .
