PHILOSOPHY

3 on 3 Basketball provides players with different experience than typical 5 on 5 play while utilizing the spacing of half court.

  • Players are able to play with the ball in their hands more often
  • Players have the opportunity to develop a variety of skills and moves in a competitive setting
  • Increased Basketball IQ as offensive/defensive principles apply directly to 5 on 5
  • Improve and increase communication during games.

This will be a FUN and competitive environment with players in control of the games instead of coaches.
