3 on 3 Men's Basketball Tournament


Eventbrite - COB 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament


The Church of the Open Bible is hosting its 13th annual 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament on September 21, 2019 at the Burlington High School, 123 Cambridge Street, Burlington.


Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and games begin promptly at 10am. The tournament will probably go until about 1 - 2 p.m. Each team is guaranteed at least three games. We will have a speaker for 10 minutes after about 1 hour of play to talk from the Bible about the message of Christianity. Everyone is encouraged to stay to listen!


Who can play

This is a guys' tournament for anyone 14 years or older. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. All others can sign their own waiver form.


Everyone is invited to watch!



Each player will pay $15 when his team registers. This covers the t-shirt and organizational costs.


Rules of Play


The Gameshirt

  1. Each team must have between 3 and 5 players on their roster. Only players on the roster are permitted to play.
  2. Substitution is unlimited, but permitted only when the ball is not in play.
  3. To begin the game, a 3-point shot will determine the right to possession.
  4. The ball will change possession after all made baskets, no "make it, take it."
  5. The ball will be "cleared" on EVERY change of possession. Failure to clear it will result in the loss of possession and the loss of any points resulting from that possession. Cleared means both feet and the ball behind the 3 point line.
  6. The ball must be checked by an opposing player before it is put into play. The ball must be passed to a teammate to begin to play.
  7. Scoring is by 1's and 2's.
  8. Each team is allowed one 1-minute time-out.



  • Players call their own fouls, which results in a possession of the ball.
  • Any games that get out of hand will be reffed by referees.


The Court

  • The sides and bottom of the backboard are inbounds. The top is out of bounds.
  • Boundaries are the sidelines, end line, and the half court line.
