Each player participating in the contest receives two (2) dunk attempts in the first round and two (2) dunk attempts in the final round. Following each dunk, the player is scored from 7-10 by the judges. After the player has completed both dunks in a round, the scores are tallied. Contestants will have 45 seconds to receive a score on the attempts. If the player does not complete any dunk attempts during his/her 45 seconds, he/she is given a score of zero (0). A dunk attempt is when a participant attacks the basket with the basketball and makes a controlled motion at the rim. The referee will make the final call.
The top four (4) players with the highest scores advance to the final round. Scoring is not cumulative. In the final round, the order of dunkers will be from lowest to highest based on first round totals. The order of the second attempts in the final round is re-shuffled from lowest to highest score based on the judges scoring of the final round’s first attempts.
