         I would also like to take this opportunity to share some general information
    with you regarding this event.
   Please have your registration form completed and all Release and Waiver of

   Have your team check in at Tucker Coliseum at 12:00 noon on Friday, April 18,

   The use of gloves is recommended for play (may also want to remind players to
    cut fingernails and limit jewelry for play).
   General wheelchair basketball rules apply:
   CONTACT The chair is considered a part of the player. General rules of contact in
    regular basketball (charging, blocking, etc.) apply to wheelchair basketball.
   TIME LIMITS An offensive player cannot remain more than 3 seconds in the free
    throw lane while the player's team is in possession of the ball.
   DRIBBLE A player in possession of the ball may not push more than twice in
    succession with one or both hands in either direction without tapping the ball to
    the floor again. Taking more than two consecutive pushes constitutes a traveling
    violation. A player, may, however, wheel the chair and bounce the ball
    simultaneously just as an ablebodied player runs and bounces the ball
    simultaneously in regular basketball.
   This is a double elimination tournament with the winner playing the Rollin
    Razorbacks (three members of the team).
