The 2023 BC High School
Grade 9 Boys Invitational Provincial
3×3 Championship
Info & Rules

Our goal is to offer an opportunity (at no-cost) for the top 50 to 100 Grade 9 basketball players,
whose teams did not qualify for the Grade 9 Provincials,
to compete for a Championship in a highly competitive environment in front of a gym full of fans.

Follow this link   3×3 Registration Form


1. No entry fee.  We guarantee space for the first 50 teams.  Register soon.

2.  Last year’s $500 Basketball Bursary has been doubled to $1,000 this year ($500 for 1st, $250 for 2nd, $150 for 3rd and $100 for 4th).  This is for the recipients’ basketball development like gear, fees and training.  The Top 4 teams also receive Provincial Trophies, Championship T-shirts and Vancouver Bandits Game Tickets and Gear.


  • Any Grade 9 player who registered and played BC high school basketball this season is eligible, no matter what level they played at.
  • Any Grade 8 player who registered and played on a Grade 8 or Grade 9/Juvenile BC high school basketball team this season is eligible.

            NOTE: Each team can have a maximum of 2 Grade 8’s per team.

  • Your school team can not be active, meaning that is they have finished their season.

              An example of an active (thus not eligible) team is a team that is competing at the BC Gr 9 Provincials or any of the Senior boys tiers.

  • Each school can enter a maximum of 2 teams.  Consideration may be given for a 3rd team by request.
  • Teams must be composed of players from the same school.
  • NEW – Please submit your BCSS registration (from your Coach or Athletic Director) showing the school team that you were registered on for the 2022-23 season.

4.  Round Robin and Elimination Games start at 9:00 Saturday March 4 at Semiahmoo and go all day. Round robin play continues until the Final Four are determined.  Those Final Four teams will be seeded and they will play the following day at Earl Marriott, Sunday March 5 at 2:00 (checkin at 12:30) for the Championship in the main gym just prior to the Provincial Final Four games.

5.  This is a possession fast break timed and refereed game in the half court.

Full court rules but with the modifications of possession after score and foul shots.

1. Fast Break – you score, then as fast as you can get the ball back into play from the baseline over the 3 pt line, then turn and attack again.  No waiting for the defense.  Go hard and fast break before the defense can set up.

2. This is a possession game, you score – you keep.
It is possible that 1 team may never get a chance to go on offense.

3. Winner is first to 17 points or highest score after 10 minutes.

4. The game starts with a jump ball at the foul line, the team getting possession can score immediately.  After that, all action starts at the baseline after a basket is scored and the ball is advanced anywhere over the 3 pt line before attacking.  Do not wait for the defense to set up.
example: a score, ball is taken and inbounded from the baseline to over the 3 pt line, the inbound steps over the baseline onto the court and receive a return pass and can shoot.

5. Fouls

  • Non-shooting – Possession and inbounds under the hoop.
  • On the 6th foul, bonus shot and ball in play.
  • Fouled while shooting 2 pt shot, 1 pt and 1 foul shot and ball in play.
  • Fouled while shooting 3 pt shot, 2 pt and 1 foul shot and ball in play.

6. Any unsportsmanlike or technical fouls results in 2 shots and possession.
Excessive number of unsportsmanlike or technical fouls will result in game ejection
