MONSTER: Is the tournament open to everyone? What is the cost, age divisions, and location?
PHX3ON3: PHX3on3 uses pool play leading into a Championship playoff. Every team will have a minimum of 3 scheduled games. Within each division, teams will be placed in smaller competitive brackets with other teams of similar player ages, heights, and experience. A champion will be crowned in each individual bracket and there will be no crossover play between different brackets (except in the Elite Division). The champions in each and every bracket will receive awards.
- Youth (8-9) $80/team
- Youth (10-12) $80/team
- Teen (13-19) $80/team
- Adult (20 and over) $100/team
- Elite $150/team
- Wheelchair Free
The oldest player on a team determines what division a team will be in. For instance, a team with (3) 19 yr. olds and (1) 20 yr. old will play in the Adult Division, not the Teen Division. Additionally, we will not match a team of 13 yr. olds against a team of 19 yr. olds, just because they are both in the Teen Division. Rather, the 13 yr. olds will play against teams of similar age, height, and experience, as will the 19 yr. olds.
The Elite Division works differently. This division is for the highest level, most competitive teams. The Elite Division includes male and female sub-divisions, but within these, there is no further breakdown based on age, height, and experience. We will ultimately crown one female and one male Elite champion and the players on each of these two teams will split a $2,000 cash prize per team.

MONSTER: Do teams travel from outside the state to play?
PHX3ON3: Yes. While the majority of our teams obviously come from Phoenix and the surrounding area, we have had players and teams travel from out of state to participate in PHX3on3. We anticipate that we will see even more out-of-area teams as the tournament continues to grow.
