Participation in the KIDSPORTS Invitational Powered by the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center is exclusive to KIDSPORTS basketball players.
KIDSPORTS executives will have a random lottery drawing to determine which of their teams get to participate in the tournament on a yearly basis. Grades of participants will range from 5th-8th, boys and girls.
The following rules apply to the 2013 KIDSPORTS Invitational:
- 15 Minute Running Clocks
- Half Court
- Scoring by 1′s and 2′s
- All shooting fouls = 1 free throw (unless fouled shooting a 2, then 2 free throws)
- All non-shooting fouls = ball “checked up top”
- Individual player fouls are not tracked
- Ball must be “checked” behind the 3-point line after any change of possession
- If there is a tie at the end of regulation, the game will be played under the “sudden death” format – next basket wins- the ball is “checked up top” by whichever team has the possession arrow
- Technical fouls may be issued: 1technical foul = 1 free throw + possession, 2 technical fouls = done for the day
