It’s nearly time for the Comet Athletic Club 3-on-3!

2024 is a record setting year for our event. There are 131 teams registered who will play 203 games!

Game Sites

With the record number of teams, we added an off-site location. Games will be played at Mayville State's Lewy Lee Fieldhouse and Wellness Center, as well as at Peter Boe, Jr. (PBJ) Elementary School (20 2nd Street NW, Mayville). The school is approximately 5 blocks west of campus. (See maps.)

Teams in brackets playing games at PBJ should register at that site to receive T-shirts. Medals will also be awarded at this site. Teams will not have to travel back and forth between sites once games start in a bracket.

Game schedules were created to keep bracket games together, with limited travel between courts for any team. With this in mind, there are some teams who may play 2 or even 3 games back-to-back. There is not an easy way around this without having teams spend more down time in the gym. (See game schedules.)

Brackets & first game start times are in the links below:

Start times for teams

The large number of teams prompted the need for a few adjustments to the rules. Adjustment help to accommodate completion of games in a reasonable time frame.  (See update.

The updates are highlighted in yellow on the sheet and are noted here:

  • There is no designated 3-point line. Not all courts have this marked.
  • Games will consist of 2 eight-minute halves, a 2-minute halftime, and 2 minutes between games.
  • In the event there is a tie at the end of a game, coaches and officials will have a coin flip to determine the winner.
