FAQ’s

Can I register as a single player during the tournament?

Most teams are sponsored by their employer company. If your company does not have a team already registered in the tournament, why not organize one! It’s a great tournament for a great cause. Visit the tournament play page on our website or email James Telfser for more information. If you do not have a team, please email baystreethoops@gmail.com and we will add you to a waitlist.
 

How does a team determine what level they are in the tournament?

We have a system by which you “self-rank” your team. Is your team new to the game? Did three or more of your players play in last year’s NCAA Sweet Sixteen? Or are you somewhere in-between? We will help you slot into the right division that will match the skill level of your players and those that you will face on the other teams.
 

Can other people from different companies play as one team?

Sure, just name the team and let us know – the registration process is the same.
 

Can women and men play on the same team?

While there will be 2 women’s divisions, there is no restriction for women playing in the any of the men’s divisions. There have been several in the past who have done so – including one in the top men’s division. We will however not allow men to play in the women’s divisions.
 

Who can watch the tournament and do they have to pay?

Anyone can watch the tournament for free from the sidelines.
 

How does the ladder system work?

Each team is guaranteed 3 games during the round-robin play of the tournament – one game on each of Thursday and Friday evenings and then one more game on Saturday morning. The top 4 teams from each division will then go on to the playoff round with a semi-final and then the final championship game.
 

When is the deadline for registering my team?

Registration opens during the winter season each year. If you have any issues with registration, please email us at baystreethoops@gmail.com.
