A nickname profile is one of the options to register a player under 13 years old to FIBA 3x3.
- Go to the FIBA 3x3 signup form or click Sign up from the play.fiba3x3.com web page
- Fill the gender and the correct date of birth
- Use the nickname, not the email address, as the username
Select a recognizable but not contactable nickname
Full real name, email address or any other personal data that would enable unwanted people to find a way to contact the child and should be avoided as a nickname. However, the nickname should be recognisable for those who need to be able to identify the player e.g. from the roster lists. For example, somebody idolizing Larry Bird might choose Player33 and a Kyrie Irving fan could be UncleDrew10. Another good convention is to use the first name and favorite jersey number (e.g. dusan11). Once the nickname profile has been created, anyone registering a team can find the profile searching for the username, in the various player searches of play.fiba3x3.com
Any nickname profile can be converted or merged into a full profile later on
The user name and the password can also be used to log in to play.fiba3x3.com. Further, all games played and events attended with this username will be recorded the same way as with FIBA 3x3 profiles. When the player turns 13 years old, she/he will have an option to convert the profile into a full FIBA 3x3 profile. Further, nickname-based competition records can be merged with other profiles like any other FIBA 3x3 profile.
Remember to take good care of the password
Remember to take good care of the password carefully. As there is no email attached to the profile, there is also no password recovery. In the event of a permanently lost password, a new profile has to be created again and the competition's record of the old profile should be requested to be merged to the new one.
