Each Summer the Kristiansand Pirates organize one of Norway's largest youth basketball tournaments in one of Norway's top Summer towns - Kristiansand. We welcome you all to a wonderful experience in June of each year. You may register teams through this website, through our new registration system. During the tournament all results will be updated here on piratescup.no and group tables will be automatically updated.
After the registration deadline, each teams contact person will be sent practical information regarding the tournament.
Pirates Cup has historically been an "end of season" cup, and therefore the age groups are decided by the 2021/2022 season. Youth team players may play in these age groups:
G is for the Norwegian "gutter" (boys), while J is for the Norwegian "jenter" (girls)
U11, players born 2011 or younger (Mixed group - no boys/girls divide)
U12, players born 2010 or younger
U13 , players born 2009 or younger
U14, players born 2008 or younger
U15, players born 2007 or younger
U16, players born 2006 or younger
U17 , players born 2005 or younger
U19, players born 2003 or younger
IMPORTANT NOTE: In case of less than 4 teams in an age group, that age group will be combined with another. We will try our best to hold a final between the teams in an age group regardless of it being combined with another
Apart from the possible combination of U17->U19, we will not combine 3 age groups into one category.
Please keep this in mind when registering teams in these age groups.
Game schedule will be planned out and ready for you about a week before the tournament start. At that point, each teams contact person will be notified about the game schedules now being published on www.piratescup.no.
Be aware that the tournament starts on Friday 3rd of June (around 17:00), and all teams might be required to play on that day. Take this into consideration when planning your arrival.
At arrival all teams are required to show up at the designated areas. The person in charge for each team (and only them) will talk to representatives of the Pirates organization, who will hand out their participant cards and other practical information. Game schedules and contact details will be available online on this website.
