One rack will be stationed at the Free throw line and one will be in each corner inside the arc. Each shooter may begin at either corner of the court. The designated shooting spots inside the arc will be marked with yellow poly spots. The shooter will stand behind the yellow poly spot when shooting.

The clock will start on the shooter’s first release.

The shooters have the chance to score a maximum of 21 points.

The first two balls on each rack are worth two points, and the third ball on each rack is worth three points (money ball). A shooter must have both feet behind the 3-point line when he/she releases the ball.

A shooter’s total score is determined by adding the total points he/she receives for all made baskets from behind the 3-point line.

Tie-Breaker - When determining the champion, the following tie-breaking procedure will be followed: The first tiebreaker will be the number of money balls each shooter hit in his/her round. If a tie still exists, the second tiebreaker will be the number of baskets made from the last rack. If a tie still exists, the judge/s will be the final decision to give the first place to the players, if there are only two players in the tiebreaker spot. More than two players in the tiebreaker spot will be given another chance to shoot the money ball in each shooting spot.
