Three Point Shootout

There are two (2) rounds of shooting. Scoring is not cumulative. The competition will begin first with the girls and then the boys. Five (5) stations are positioned around the three-point line, with four (4) brown balls and one (1) red, white, and blue ball at each station. Each player must start at the baseline station with their hand on the first ball. Each participant has one (1) minute to shoot the 25 basketballs. The player must shoot from all five (5) positions, as time allows.

Each basket made with a brown ball is worth one (1) point. Each basket made with a multi-colored ball is worth two (2) points. The multi-colored ball may be shot only after all four (4) brown balls are shot from the station.

In the event of a tie, the tied players will each have one (1) minute to shoot as many balls as possible. Of the first round participants for each the boys and girls, the top three (3) will move on to the final round. Order of competition in the finals is determined by inverse order of first round scores. 

Slam Dunk Contest

Each player participating in the contest receives two (2) dunk attempts in the first round and two (2) dunk attempts in the final round. Following each dunk, the player is scored from 7-10 by the judges. After the player has completed both dunks in a round, the scores are tallied. Contestants will have 45 seconds to receive a score on the attempts. If the player does not complete any dunk attempts during his/her 45 seconds, he/she is given a score of zero (0). A dunk attempt is when a participant attacks the basket with the basketball and makes a controlled motion at the rim. The referee will make the final call.

The top four (4) players with the highest scores advance to the final round. Scoring is not cumulative. In the final round, the order of dunkers will be from lowest to highest based on first round totals. The order of the second attempts in the final round is re-shuffled from lowest to highest score based on the judges scoring of the final round’s first attempts.

Legends & Stars Shootout

The “Legends & Stars Shootout” will pair current McDonald’s All Americans with the Games’ famous alumni in a shooting competition.
