In Latvia, 15 men's teams are divided in 3 pools of 4 and 1 pool of 3, and 12 women's teams in 4 pools of 3 and seeded automatically based on the 3x3 Federation Ranking.
All teams play every other in their respective pools. The best 2 in each group qualify for the quarter-finals.
In case teams are tied in the pools, the tie-breakers are as follows:
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); 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.
After the pools, the teams play knock-out games all the way to the final.
All pool games are played on Day 1 (on 2 courts) and the knock-out games on Day 2.
11 teams qualify for the FIBA 3x3 U18 Europe Cup:
- 6 mens' teams (4 QF winners + 2 winners of loser's bracket) - 5 women's teams (4 QF winners + winner of loser's bracket)
