SHOOTERS CAN SIGN UP IN 3 WAYS

VERIFIED TEAM

Payment is taken by one representative of the shooters (parent, coach, sponsor, 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 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 8 from each division advances until we get down to 4 teams and eventually, 2 teams. 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!

14U, 17U & Adult divisions "take their best shot" at advancing as they shoot on our Dr. Dish Shooting Machines! There is a maximum 5-minute warmup for each heat during the first and second rounds. Then there is 10-minutes of catch-and-shoot or off-the-dribble 2-pointers. The last 10 minutes will be catch-and-shoot or of 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 (FIRST/SECOND) & SEMI-FINALS

45-MINUTE FINALS 

14U, 17U & ADULTS

30-MINUTE HEATS (FIRST/SECOND)

45-MINUTE SEMI-FINALS

60-MINUTE FINALS 

The first 2 rounds consist of catch-and-shoot, off-the-dribble drills.

The semi-finals and 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 with 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 2-pointers and 3-pointers (so choose your Dynamic Duo and Closer wisely)! 

IMPORTANT NOTES

PAYMENT

 

Payments for contest entries are non-refundable - 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).

 

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.). The same applies to same-day walk-in registrants, coaches, sponsors, or anybody who desires to donate.

 

We will contact any payer that needs to process their payment outside of the Typeform. After completing the Typeform or making payment based on aforementioned methods, the representative for the booking party will be emailed a link to sign up via SignUp Genius (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.

REGISTRATION

 

Early registration is given to Day Ones Members from Thursday, September 24th @ 11:00am until Friday, September 25th @ 10:59am, and applies to anyone who signs up unattached or tied to a team (verified or unverified). Also, each shooter that participates with Day Ones Members becomes eligible to sign up early! Day Ones Members are the only ones who can validate Non-Day Ones Members to register with them (typing their information within the Typeform).  

 

Early registrants get a chance to lock in a time slot that works best for their respective teams along with discounted rates!

 

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. Registration for unattached shooters closes September 30th 1st @ 11:59pm, so we can allow for newly grouped participants to coordinate which time slot works best for them.

Shooters who are add-ons to a particular team after the initial booking (growing from 3 players to as many as 5 players or substitute shooters), pay at the rate of an unattached shooter according to their membership or non-membership status. Up to 2 shooters can be added as substitutes, but each team's roster needs to be finalized before the start of the semi-finals. However, all shooters who participate and place between 1st - 4th receive prizes.
