The Summit High School boys and girls basketball teams are hosting a 3-on-3 basketball tournament on Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Summit High School gymnasium to raise funds for the upcoming season.

The tournament will consist of a maximum of 16 teams in three tournament divisions: middle school, high school and adult. Each half-court game will consist of a two-minute warmup, eight-minutes halves with a running clock, a two-minute halftime and 30-second timeouts at the four-minute mark of each half.

All baskets will be worth 2 points, and a player will foul out after three fouls. After five fouls in a given game, teams will shoot one free throw worth 1 point. Middle school and high school divisions will be refereed by high school players. Coaches, parents and the adult division will be self-refereed. 

At least one male and one female are required for the middle school and high school divisions, while co-ed teams are optional for the adult division, which is for people 18 and older. Each team is guaranteed two games and will be eliminated after two losses. 

Matching T-shirts or a team theme is encouraged but not required. Spectators are encouraged.

Cost of entry is $50 per team. All the proceeds will go to help fund Summit High School basketball programs.

Those interested in registering for the tournament can sign up via a Google docs link for the event. Payments can be made to Kayle Walker Burns (@Kaylewburns) on Venmo with the subject line detailing the team name and age group. 

All players must sign a waiver before participating in the tournament.
