The 2016 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships feature 20 men's and 20 women's teams.
They are divided into 4 pools of 5 and seeded automatically based on the 3x3 Federation Ranking on the cut-off date of 1 May. The seeding order is done in the "snake format" as follows:
Each team plays the other 4 in their respective pools. The top two teams from each pool qualify for the last 16 and then play knock-out games all the way to the final.
With the exception of the bronze-medal game, there will be no classification games. Overall standings (places 5 to 20) and pool standings are determined by the following 3x3 standings rules:
If teams are tied after the first step, refer to the next one – and so on. 1. Most wins (or win ratio in case of unequal number of games in inter-pool comparison); 2. Head-to-head confrontation (only taking win/loss into account and applies within a pool only); 3. Most points scored in average (without considering winning scores of forfeits). If teams are still tied after those three steps, the one(s) with the highest seeding win(s) the tie-breaker.
On top of the men's and the women's team event, there are 3 individual contests:
