What is Bankshot™?
Bankshot™ is a game of skill and challenge! It consists of a 9-station basketball court that takes players through a course of different backboards, angles and colored backboards. The sport is intended to be self-competitive. It's universally designed for all ages and abilities, including disabled participants. Participants play alongside, not against each other.

How to Play
A Bankshot player goes from one station to the next. At each station, you bank shots off the bankboards and through the nets. Depending on where you shoot from, you get a different number of points.
Colored circles mark the shooting spots. Try 2 shots from each circle to make one. If the first try is successful, move to the next shooting position. You must complete all 3 circles at each station before moving on.
10 points maximum at each station with bonus points at double hoop stations.
Blue Circle = 2 Points
Yellow Circle = 3 Points
Red Circle = 5 Points
