  • In the 3-Point Shootout, teams select one player to represent their team for their shot to become the 3-point champion
  • Each player takes 5 shots from each of the 5 stations on the court, the top players move on to round 2, taking 5 shots again from each spot. The top 2 then move on to round 3 to determine a winner.
  • In the Skills Challenge, teams select one player to represent their team for their chance to become the skills challenge champion
  • Players are timed to complete the SYBA skills challenge obstacle course, testing speed, handles, passing, and shooting. The top players with the fastest time move on to round 2. Once the final two players are left, they complete the course one final time to crown a champion
