  1. Three-on-three basketball is a half-court game played by two teams of three players each.
  2. A size 6 ball will be used for games other than U15 and U19 boys, where size 7 will be used.
  3. Games are 20 minutes, highest score progresses. In the event of a draw, play is extended until the next point wins in a sudden death play. 
  4. Games are played in Round robin format with pools according to number teams registered with no more than 5 teams per pool.

  6. ALL GAMES WILL BE OFFICIATED. Games will be officiated by Collingwood Referees.
  7. Substitutions may be made after a basket or during any stoppage of play.
  8. First possession is decided by a toss of the coin. Ball possession changes hands after each basket.
  9. The “check line” shall be the three-point line. After a score or after a foul is awarded, a player must pass the ball in play from above the check line. Failure to pass the ball from the check line shall result in a replay.
  10. If a player causes the ball to go out of bounds or over the mid-court line, the opposing team receives possession at the “check line”. The mid-court line will be treated as out of bounds.
  11. The ball shall be awarded by the alternate possession rule in held ball situations.
  12. On any change of possession (including air balls), the ball must be returned to the check line and the player in possession of the ball may maintain control and attempt to score.
  13. No free throws are awarded.
  14. Three seconds in the lane will be in effect.
  15. Any common foul shall result in loss of possession for the offending team. For example, if player A fouls player B, player B receives possession of the ball at the check line.
  16. Score will be displayed on portable scoring unit and iPad.
  17. Teams will have light and dark options of same colours. Numbers are not necessary. There will be absolutely no teams allowed to be skins, for any circumstance. Any players not wearing the right colour shirt, whether it be light or dark, for their team, will constitute in a 2pt penalty for each player on that team not wearing the right colour shirt.
