Maryland Basketball Academy is committed to continuing to work to bring new, exciting, and fun opportunities to the youth of Montgomery County that promote learning and player development in the sports they love.


3 on 3 Basketball provides players with a different experience than typical 5 on 5 play:

  • 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.
