About Pirates Cup

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 at the start of June 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 on where their team shall be staying. We require teams to fill out their rosters so that this process goes by smoothly.

Pirates Cup has historically been a "end of season" cup, and therefore the age groups are decided by the 2017/2018 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)
U10, players born 2008 or younger
U12, players
born 2006 or younger
U13, players born 2005 or younger
U14, players born 2004 or younger
U15, players born 2003 or younger
U16, players born 2002 or younger
U17, players born 2001 or younger
U19, players born 1999 or younger

IMPORTANT NOTE: In case of less than 4 teams in these age groups, the following will happen:

GU13 - will be combined with GU14

GU15 - will be combined with GU16

GU17 - will be combined with GU19

JU14 - will be combined with GU13 or JU15, as long as GU13 isn't combined with GU14 or JU15 isn't combined with JU16

JU15 - will be combined with JU16, as long as JU16 isn't combined with JU17

JU16 - will be combined with JU17, as long as JU17 isn't combined with JU19

JU17 - will be combined with JU19, as long as JU17 isn't combined with JU16

So apart from the possible combination of 17->19, 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 (after 16:00), 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.
