- Hot Hand Jersey – A player wearing this jersey gets double the points when scoring.
- Make or Miss – The quarter starts with 2 players on each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the court. When they miss, a teammate must leave the court.
- Trick Shot Challenge – The team’s challenge each other to make trick shots, with 5 points awarded to a team the makes a trick shot, and 5 points given to the opposition if the shot is missed.
