2022 3pt Open – Official Rules

Competitors can begin at either corner of the court. 

Yes. Qualified referees will ensure (1) shooters shoot from beyond the
arc; and (2) the ball is released from the shooter’s hands prior to the final buzzer. If a shooter’s foot/toe is touching the three-point arc, or the basketball is touching any part of a shooter’s hand/finger when the buzzer sounds, the basket will not count. The referees’ decision will be
final – absolutely no appeals or disputes will be permitted. Competitors are expected to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner.

Yes. Each Competitor will have an “On-Deck” basket to themselves 5 minutes prior to their scheduled shooting time and an “In-the-hole” basket to themselves 10 minutes prior to their scheduled shooting time.
Official event basketballs and a rebounder will be provided at the “In-the-hole” and “On-Deck” courts. There are also 12 additional baskets (“warm-up courts”) that are open to all Competitors throughout the event.

The 3pt Open is open to anyone, however it is the responsibility of the participant to check with their compliance office on eligibility.  We do not want to see anyone lose eligibility.  With the new NIL laws, this is a grey area that each participant must check into.
