HOW DO I ADD OR EDIT A PLAYER TO A REGISTERED TEAM
3 on 3 tournament & 3 on 3 league:
After submitting the registration, the individual who registered the team will receive an email from Virtuous Sports that contains instructions for editing the roster/registration via our Primary Contact Portal.
WHERE IS THE REQUIRED LIABILITY WAIVER?
At the bottom of the League/Tournament page, there is a document titled "Waiver - League Location". Please print and complete this so it is ready to turn in on the first night. We will have extra copies on site as well. This waiver needs to be completed by each player on the team before participating (sub players also need to complete it). All the players can go on the same form or we can staple them together if each player completes it individually.
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
Refunds will be issued if requested via email prior to the registration deadline and will be reduced by a $10 administrative fee. Refunds will also be reduced t-shirt cost (if ordered). No refunds will be issued after the registration closes.
WHAT IS THE LEAGUE FORMAT LIKE?
5 on 5 league:
Typically, each team will play one game per day. There will be four eight-minute periods for all divisions (except varsity and senior division). Varsity and Senior division will play four ten-minute periods. Every period will be on a running clock that is only stopped for timeouts, lining up for free throws and technical fouls.
3 on 3 league:
Typically, each team will play two games per day/evening. Games will usually be 20 minutes running time and played on a half court. Games will be scored by a referee. Typically there is music playing and concessions available. We try to build the schedule so your team plays its two games within 90 minutes or less.
HOW DO I MAKE SURE I GET TO PLAY ON THE SAME TEAM AS MY FRIENDS?
5 on 5 league:
You will need to register as a INDIVIDUAL. During registration you will have the option to request a buddy!
3 on 3 league:
You will need to register as a TEAM. You must have a minimum of 3 players and can have a maximum of 6 players. One player's parent/guardian will complete the on-line registration form. This person will be the Primary Contact for the team. Be prepared to enter roster information for each player (shirt size, graduation year, name, phone number, & email address) and to pay the complete team fee.
3 on 3 tournaments:
You will need to register as a TEAM. You must have a minimum of 3 players and can have a maximum of 5 players. One player's parent/
guardian will complete the on-line registration form. This person will be the Primary Contact for the team. Be prepared to enter roster information for each player (shirt size, graduation year, name, phone number, & email address) and to pay the complete team fee.
WHAT IF MY CHILD DOESN'T HAVE A TEAM BUT WANTS TO PLAY?
3 on 3 league ONLY:
We don't place individuals on teams. However, we can let people know you are looking for a team and someone may contact you. Email us at email@example.com with the following information: league(s) you are interested in playing in/gender of player/graduation year of player/phone or email. We will post this information on the specific league page.
WHICH DIVISION DO WE REGISTER FOR?
Boys and girls divisions will be organized by graduation year. Read the registration information carefully to be sure to select the correct division. Teams can certainly register to play in an older division if they feel the competition would be more appropriate. Keep in mind that many players in some of our leagues are not "A" level traveling basketball players. If your team is made up of players of varying grade levels, it is recommended that you sign up for the division that your oldest player qualifies for. We try our best to schedule teams to play appropriate competition. Much of it depends on you selecting the right division. We will watch scores and may schedule out of division games if scores indicate possible improved competition.
WHAT CONSTITUTES A FORFEIT?
We don't keep records or post standings. Our objective is to provide kids an opportunity to play basketball. Other teams don't appreciate showing up without an opponent to play. Teams should make every attempt to have at least three registered players present for each game. IF A TEAM IS GOING TO BE SHORT PLAYERS, THEY SHOULD FIND SUBS. If a team does not show up with enough players, the staff will try to find other players to fill in. If a substitute team can't be formed, the team that is present has rights to use the basket and court space during that slotted game time.
WHAT IF THERE AREN'T ANY LEAGUES NEAR ME?
Virtuous Sports mission is to create more athletic opportunities for young players. We have services that will assist individuals or associations who share our vision and are willing to put in the work to run a successful 5 on 5 or 3 on 3 basketball league. The best way to have a 3 on 3 league/tournament offered in your community is to let people know our services are available.
WHAT ARE THE PHILOSOPHY AND RULES OF VIRTUOUS SPORTS?
This document is available to view below. It will also be available on your first team meetup from your team coach.
3 on 3 tournament & 3 on 3 league:
The first league/tournament date when your team picks up their shirts since various sites may have slightly different rules.
CAN WE HAVE A COACH?
Yes! All 5 on 5 league teams have coaches! If you're interested in being a volunteer coach please sign up on the employment page.
3 on 3 tournament & league:
No. This league is NOT intended to have teams being coached. We allow a parent/guardian to sit with the 3rd and 4th grade teams on the FIRST PLAY DATE to help with substitutions. Following that date, no parents/guardians will be allowed on or near the players bench area. The uniqueness of this league is that kids are allowed to run their own team. If obvious coaching is being done during the games, it should be brought to the attention of the site director.
HOW DO WE FIND OUR SCHEDULE?
Schedules will be posted on the specific league's page. We typically post schedules one week at a time about 5 days prior to a league date. This allows us to monitor game scores and make sure teams are playing the most appropriate competition possible.
HOW DO WE KNOW OUR STANDING IN OUR DIVISION?
We update standings after every game! After registration your team will have direct access to all standings on the specific league's page.
Teams who wish to play 3 on 3 in a format where the winners receive recognition should sign up for our one-day tournaments.
WHAT LEAGUES OR TOURNAMENTS ARE AVAILABLE?
Use our league & tournament links at the top to search for leagues and tournaments in your area. You will find information on location of, cost of and dates for various upcoming events. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter. We will send out email reminders for upcoming events.
In the case of inclement weather and leagues, tournaments, or camps needing to be canceled, we will make every effort to secure more facility time to make up the missed games. In the event more facility time is not available, teams will have the option to play the missed games at another one of our locations.
