When registering to an event via play.fiba3x3.com you will face a screen with two options.

You should use Register as Player if you are playing yourself and will also act as the team's contact for the organiser.

When using this option, you will be asked to log in to the FIBA 3x3 (or sign up to a new account) and the email address that is attached to your FIBA 3x3 profile (the same as your user name when you log in) will be used by the organiser for information related to this event.

After a successful registration, you will get an email that looks like this

You should use Register as Team Lead when you are doing the registration on behalf of other people but are not playing yourself. Such cases would be, for example, when you are:

  • a parent
  • a coach
  • a team lead, agent, PR person, technical support, significant other, computer whiz nephew - basically anyone helping a team captain who is great in basketball...but less great with computers and Internet.
  • an existing FIBA 3x3 profile holder who wants to - for whatever reason - use a different email as the team contact for this particular event.

When using this option, the email you give will be used as the team contact for this event only. Note that you will need to verify that the email address is functional by clicking the link sent. So when using this option, make sure you have handy access to the email you plan to use because you will get an email like this.

After verifying the email, the team lead will be sent a confirmation email with a link to the registration page on which she/he can use Add Players functionality to fill in the team roster.
