  • The ball is served between the two opponents in the middle of the field.
  • Players must kick the ball to other players on the same rod or advance it in an attempt to score a goal.
  • If a ball leaves the field, hits the top rail the ball is to be ruled out of play and if a player takes their hands off of the rods or causes any delay of game, the ball will be put back into play by the non-offending team.

Teams

Each team will consist of 3 players. The whole team must register at the same time, one person pays for the entire team.

Play

  • A player ("bear") is pushed by their team, while on a scooter, to the center of the play area and that player attempts to gather as many balls under their basket as possible and return to their team’s designated area.
  • The scooter can NOT stop once moved from the team’s area, as a player reaches the center they must be immediately pulled back to the team’s designated area.
  • You may send the same player back to the center, or have the team members rotate through being “bears”.
  • Only the balls that are in the team’s area count as points. Balls will quickly become scattered around the room, and it is not enough to have balls “close” to a team's area.
  • If a ball is close, the team can send the bear towards the ball instead of the center. The game ends when all the balls have been collected.
  • Players may not ram, hit or leave the field of play during the round.
  • Players may be removed from play if rules are not adhered to.

Specifics on the format of the single elimination tournament will be based on registered teams and determined once registration closes.

Scoring

Up to 4 teams will compete at the same time. At the end of each round, the team that collects the most balls wins that round. Each ball will be worth 1 point, special balls may be placed into a round and announced at the beginning of each game, that ball could be worth more than one point or could reduce a team's point count.

Play

  • Set up buckets in the shape of triangles; 6 buckets each side, shoot off to see which player goes first
  • Player who wins shoot off gets both balls first, they may shoot over or under hand, and may choose to bounce the ball if desired
  • Do not cross the foul line (back bucket) when tossing the ball
  • There is no defending a regular shot until it touches something
  • Bounce shots may be blocked
  • If a ball knocks over the bucket it doesn’t count, unless it stays fully in the bucket
  • Bounce shots are worth the removal of 2 buckets
  • Once Player’s 2 balls are thrown:
    • If player scored on both throws, the balls return to that player to go again
    • If player did not score both throws, it becomes the other player’s turn
  • Buckets may be re-racked in formations of a line or triangle, post each player’s turn
  • Half way through the time allotted the teams will switch sides.
  • Players may be removed from play if rules are not being adhered to and the other player will automatically advance
