Elite Madness Tournament in August

07.06.2021

Elite Madness is our upcoming summer tournament that takes places Sunday August 28, 2022

We are back with another year of Elite Madness.

The 2021 event saw over 30 teams signed up to compete across 6 different age divisions.

The tournament is organized as follows:

GAMES WILL ROUGHLY START AT 9:30AM with the youngest age divisions playing first.

Tournament rules


– Game clock: 30min running clock (no halftime)
– Only the last 2 minutes of the game, the clock will be stopped.
– Every team has only one 60 seconds time-out during the game. The clock stops during that time
out.
– The 24 and 14 sec shotclock rule applies to the games.
– All non shooting (defensive) fouls result in 1 extra point and ball possession for the offensive
team.
– A shooting foul results in an automatic 2 or 3 points for the offensive team.
– A shooting foul with a score results in an automatic 2 or 3 points and ball possession for the
offensive team.
– Substitutions be made at every moment during the game. Give a highfive to the player who needs
to wait OUTSIDE next to his bench. There can at NO POINT be 6 players on the court.
– When the game finishes in a tie game, there will be a “golden goal, or game winner”. We keep
playing till one of the teams score. If a defensive foul happens in overtime, the player will shoot 1
freethrow: if he scores the game is over, if he misses we keep playing till we got a score.
