We will take applications through April 30, 2015 or we reach our capacity of 192 players.

We have 2 rules for players.  Each Player must be at least 18 by May 1, 2015 and you cannot be a current Division I collegiate or NBA player. All other ballers should bring their A Game.

  • In addition to the above fees, there will be a nominal processing fee for the automated application and registration process.

Your goal as a Player is to get drafted.  There are several ways to improve your draft status:

Application (Required) - your application information will be compiled into a Player Bio Book for the coaches.  Please be as detailed and accurate as possible.  

Player Combine (Optional) - you can participate in the Player Combine to get various skills and assessments recorded.  This information will be added to the Player Bio Book.

Tryouts (Required) - we will conduct tryouts for all players.  You are required to participate in one of the tryouts sessions, which will use standard pick-up rules (i.e. Play to 21, no refs, etc.).   

Our objective is to build 16 teams of 8-12 players each so that all teams are as equal as possible headed into the Tournament.


  • Winning Team = $1,000 shared equally amongst the players
  • MVP = $500


  • Tournament Games will be 40 minutes in length (two 20 minute halves)
  • Running time except for the last 2:00 of each half

  • Shooting 1:1 on the 7th foul; Shooting 2 on the 10th+ foul
  • 2 timeouts per half, no carryover
  • Tournament games will all have 2-3 refs


We will take applications until April 5 or we meet our 200 coach capacity.  Coaching Competitors can include any level of experience, including kids (in-house/traveling), AAU, high school, college, and pro. Or, you may have zero true coaching experience, but you know the game.

Coach Fee:
This is for you.  There is no fee to participate as a Coach.

Our Coach Selection Committee will review all applications, coaching resumes and videos submitted.  From this Coaching Pool, the Committee will select 32 coaches who qualify for the Coach Cutdown Day (May 1).

Coach Cutdown Day - Plan a full day of interviews, simulations, assessments and challenges in order for our Coach Selection Committee to meet you and determine which 16 coaches will qualify for the Supreme Coach Tournament. 

SUPREME COACH TOURNAMENT - the 16 coaches will be split into 2 regions, the West Region (Eden Prairie) and the East Region (Fridley).  Each coach will evaluate player talent (adult basketball players) and will assemble their teams via a Player Draft.  The Tournament is single-elimination.  Winner-Take-All.

Throughout the Tournament Week, you will not only have the opportunity of a lifetime and earn a fast-track to your dream coaching job, but you will have many opportunities in 1:1 and small group settings to pick the brains of coaching legends.    

Winning Coach:

  • $500
  • Rockwell Tournament Trophy
  • Staff position for Division 1 summer basketball camp (school TBD)
