Eligibility and National Team selection
Once a player has subscribed to 3x3planet.com, they have access to the huge range of 3x3 basketball events from the worldwide 3x3 Competition Network. No player licenses are required.
They can easily assemble a team composed of themselves and three other players (also members of 3x3planet.com), find out which tournaments are taking place nearby and subscribe to the one(s) of their choice; all of this from the same place: 3x3Planet.
Entry level tournaments are of course open to everyone, while certain higher level tournaments see qualification secured through other tournaments.
For participation in National Team competition, players are selected through their National Federations. Participation in National Team competitions is only open to countries where a 3x3 basketball tour is in place. Besides the basic requirement of citizenship (and appropriate age for youth competitions), the only other requirement for players is to have participated in at least two FIBA endorsed 3x3 tournament in the calendar year. National Federations must provide each player's Planet ID when registering athletes.
For more information about National Team eligibility, contact the 3x3 department of your National Federation.
As well as standard senior tournaments (no age restriction), FIBA recommends the following age-specific categories: U12, U15, U18 (player is 12/15/18 or younger on 1 January of the year of the tournament) and 35+ (player is 35 or older on 1 January of the year of the tournament).
