In case of inclement weather, the Event Director reserves the right to reduce the number of scheduled games and/or the time of games. If you have questions about this, feel free to contact us at (505) 304-1954.

What do you mean by "co-ed teams" in the description of the Corporate Take All tournament?
The Corporate Take All tournament is a true "co-ed" event. There must be one male and one female on the court at all times during every game.

Do any other tournaments have teams with both male and female players?
Teams in special weekend events can be co-ed or not—it's your choice. Youth league teams are boys-only or girls-only.

How do you match up different age groups?
Please note that teams in our youth tournaments are grouped by school grade. Players should register for the division for their current grade. All players must match the appropriate grade, and no player can be older than the grade listed for that division or the entire team will be bumped up to the next grade. For example, if you’re in the 4th grade and register on a 3rd grade team your whole team will be bumped up to the 4th grade division. During the summer, a player's grade is based on the last grade completed, not the future grade level.

What are the age or grade groups for different tournaments?
Elementary: Grades 3-5

Middle School: Grades 6-8

High School: Grades 9-12

Adult: Ages 18 and up

Special Weekend Events: Open to all ages, and co-ed teams are allowed

Do you provide uniforms?
We will provide full uniforms for the Corporate Take All Tournament. For youth tournaments, special weekend events, and fundraisers for other organizations, you will wear your own gear. Teams in the Corporate Take All Tournament can wear their own uniforms to publicize their company or organization if they want. Every player must wear a unique number so game officials can keep track of fouls. All players' attire must be family-friendly.

Can I change my roster after I am registered?
Roster changes for youth tournaments can only be made at the pre-event meeting (see below).

For special weekend events you can adjust your roster before your first official game. Roster changes must be completed either at the pre-event check-in or at the headquarters tent before your first game.

Roster changes cannot be made online. All new players must complete a player change form prior to their first game; otherwise, the team will forfeit games played with the non-registered player prior to the form being completed. Roster change forms are available on the web site or at the headquarters tent during pre-event check-in.

When do we get our schedule?
Schedules will be posted online. Teams can also pick up their schedules during the mandatory pre-event meeting for youth tournaments.

What is the pre-event meeting?
Team captains in youth tournaments are required to attend a meeting before the tournament begins. Normally these tournaments will begin on a Saturday and the meeting will be held the prior Friday evening. Parents and coaches are welcome to attend.

What do I need to bring to the pre-event check-in?
The only absolute requirement is to bring the team name you're registered under. No birth certificates are required at check-in; however you will need to have proof of age during the event in the case of an age discrepancy. Plan on bringing a document with each player's name and birthdate on it (state ID, birth certificate photocopy, school ID , etc.). If your document doesn't have a picture (birth certificate), it is helpful to have a picture ID as well to compare it to (school ID, etc.).

Will games be refereed?
In the spirit of 3 on 3 basketball, teams are expected to play without close supervision. If a game appears to be getting out of hand, a D.K. Hoopsters staff member will step in to officiate. Every game will have a court monitor assigned. This person will keep time, keep score, and keep track of team fouls. Court monitors will not act as referees.

What is the "no parking zone"?
The "no parking zone" is a 10 ft. by 10 ft. area starting on the baseline (5 ft. on each side of the hoop). An offensive player cannot remain stationary in this box AND receive the ball in this area when being guarded by an opposing player. You can cut through the area while being guarded and receive the ball, but you must be on the move. You can receive the ball in this area if you are stationary and are NOT being guarded. A foot on the line of the "no parking zone" counts as being in the zone.

What is the weather policy?
Show up for your first game as scheduled! The Event Director will make the call on site if conditions warrant postponing games until the weather lets up. Any delays will be posted on our website (www.dkhoopsters.com). **Show up for your first game as scheduled! **

Play will continue through inclement weather as much as possible. If it's necessary to stop play, games will be postponed in 30 min. increments until conditions are suitable to resume play. It's very important that all teams remain close to the event site so that games may resume in a timely manner once the weather has improved!

Can I bring my own cooler and tent?
Yes, players are allowed to bring coolers on-site unless otherwise noted on the event page due to facility restrictions. In addition, no alcoholic beverages are allowed on site. Please note all coolers may be searched upon entry per venue regulations. You may bring your own shade tent as long as it measures 10’ x 10’ or less and does not feature any offensive graphics. All tents and personal belongings must be removed at the end of play each day. The tournament and their employees are not responsible for any loss or theft.

How about pets?
No pets allowed, please leave them at home.

Will I have to pay for parking?

Some venues will charge for parking. The facility determines parking fees, not D.K. Hoopsters. If there is a charge for parking, it will be noted on the event page for that particular event.

How do I register?
Click on the link on the home page for the tournament you want to enter and follow the steps to register online. Or you can complete a paper entry form and return it to the address or fax number provided. Full payment must be received and all required paperwork must be signed and received by the registration deadline in order for your entire registration process to be complete. Payment can be made by PayPal or cashier's check.

Can I play the whole game?
Yes, however every 10 minutes of play both teams must rotate players, and for the last 10 minutes a team captain can play the top three players.
