SlamBall is a four player team sport loosely based on basketball. It is played on a combination of surfaces, combining the acrobatics of the trampoline, the physical play of ice hockey, and elements of basketball, particularly the slam dunk. Four trampolines are set at level around a padded basketball rim and backboard on either end of the court, serving as launching pads. The object of the game is to outscore the opposing team. A dunk is worth three points. All other shots are worth two points, except for within the last two minutes of the game, in which shots outside the trampolines and above the baseline are worth three points. A successful block of a shot is called a stop. Professional SlamBall games were aired on television by Spike TV for two seasons in 2002 - 2003. According to the SlamBall official website, SlamBall is back in August 2008 and the league is looking for players with tryouts slated for early April, 2008.

Slamball is the creation of Mason Gordon, who wanted to create a combination of sports that approximated a real-life video game. Upon developing the concept, he approached Mike Tollin, a TV and film producer of Smallville, Wild Hogs, and Coach Carter fame. After giving it some thought, he agreed to help Gordon. Painstaking thought was put into the development of the game. Many different ideas and concepts encompassing everything from court construction to team strategies were addressed. Six months after their first meeting, a court was constructed in a warehouse in East Los Angeles.

The object of the game is to outscore one's opponents with a collaboration of make shots and dunks, while at the same time preventing the opponents from doing likewise. A successful score can be worth two points if the ball is thrown through the hoop without the offensive player touching the hoop. Conventional slam dunks are scored as a three point basket. In the final two minutes of the game, all shots outside the trampolines and above the baseline are worth three points as well.


Playing regulations


Theses rules reflect the basics of the game. Games are played in two 8-minute halves stop time. Each half will commence with a 'bounce off' which is the inverse of a tip off. The ball must reach its apex uninterrupted at which point the players are allowed to 'check' each other. Ten minutes are allowed for a half time break and the only time outs allowed are within the last two minutes of regulation play. Even then the teams are allowed but one time out each. A 15-second shot clock is utilized and expiration of that, without a shot attempt, will result in a change of possession. Teams will exchange baskets in the second half. An even score at the end of regulation time is not settled by an additional period of time but rather a series of 'face offs'(discussed later is the section entitled fouls). Teams will elect their starting 3 players to 'face off' against the opposing teams stopper and the team converting the most baskets at the end of this attains the victory. If after the 3 'face offs' the score remains deadlocked then a sudden death elimination face offs would come into force. This most closely resembles a shoot-out at the end of a tied soccer match. Full body contact is allowed within certain limitations. A player can be hit or 'checked' at any time when he is not in possession of the ball. If the player has received the ball then he cannot be hit until he dribbles the ball, at that point he is known as 'live' or 'hot' and can be hit. Players cannot be hit or checked in the back and doing so results in a foul.

Concept art for the court plan

Fouls


Each player can commit just three personal fouls before he is disqualified from the match.


A coach or player displaying poor on-court behavior (for example, fighting, arguing vehemently against an official) may be charged with a technical foul. Two technical fouls will also result in disqualification. In the case a foul is called, the player who has committed the foul, will then take position on the baseline of the lower trampolines while the player who was offended will take up offensive position at center court. This is called a 'face off'. Upon a signal from the referee the offensive player will be free to mount an attack at the basket, which the defender now must endeavor to stop. The defender must enter the lower trampoline only after bouncing in from the side trampoline. If the offensive player is successful, then points will be awarded depending on the shot converted and the offensive players' team will retain possession of the ball.

Equipment


A regulation Slamball court surface is 100 ft by 62 ft (30.4 m by 19 m.) This competition floor is the most advanced gymnastics apparatus ever created. A series of highly engineered articulating floor panels float on a bed of spring flooring to create a shock absorbent playing surface. The spring floor lies adjacent to two sets of four trampoline or spring bed 'quads' which dominate each end of the court. Each trampoline surface measures 7 ft by 14 ft (2.1m by 4.2 m.) The shock absorbent panels pair with the competition bed trampolines to create a unique playing surface that both launches players to inhuman heights and cushions their landing upon returning to the floor. Specifically engineered pads are designed to cover the frame rails and their tapered design allows for maximum safety for on-court play. This entire playing surface will be surrounded with an 8 ft (2.4 m) plexi-glass wall much like in a hockey rink. Players are to wear protective cups and special equipment to protect all areas of the body.

Slamball has recruited players directly from college and pro basketball programs across the country.

Within those guidelines to date Slamball is able to point to the follow athletes as prime examples:

While many of the skills necessary for success have been clearly identified in Slamball’s short history, part of the unique opportunity that Slamball presents is that the apex skill set has yet to be determined. Skill sets from sports like track & field, gymnastics, volleyball, baseball and action sports have the potential to impact the development of the sport. The number of prospects from these sports are now less than those from basketball and football, however, their potential effect on Slamball’s development should not be understated.

Prior to Slamball, "unstructured" athletes were not looked upon as a realistic source of professional athletic talent. The development of Street Ball as a worldwide phenomenon makes athletes from outside the college and pro systems an exciting addition to the talent pool. In the sport’s early development, many of the most recognizable players came with a lack of structured athletic credentials. Sean “Inches” Jackson, Stan “Shakes” Fletcher and Dion Mays are among the most popular and capable players in the sport. There is a combination of factors that make them successful in Slamball: (a) in contrast to expectations, they have proven to be very coachable (b) their Street Ball experience lends itself to creativity and progressive thinking and (c) they are phenomenal athletes that have slipped through the cracks. This is not to say that the league will be dominated by unstructured athletes, but rather that Slamball creates a forum where these “blacktop skills” can be incorporated into the game in a very meaningful and constructive way. streetball, as the name suggest. ...
