1st & 2nd Grade League


3rd & 4th Grade League

5th & 6th Grade League

7th & 8th Grade League

We think 3 on 3 basketball is awesome for skill development at all age levels because... You get MORE touches on the ball (you're only sharing it with 3 players instead of 5). Six passes is an average possession in 3 on 3, meaning each player will have the ball at least TWICE every possession.You have more space to try new moves and practice new skills.Your defensive footwork and agility gets challenged because you have to cover more distance with fewer players on the court.You IMPROVE passing, dribbling, shooting, cutting, spacing, rebounding and defense.All players have equal opportunity to make plays and help their team win. 

-Evaluation Day: January 29th (Team placement based on skills)
-Each league will consist of 4 teams (4 to 5 players per team)
-Practices will be on weekday evenings starting the 2nd week in February.
-Games are played on Sundays at 10am. First game will be on Sunday, February 12th.
-Games consist of two 15 minute halves. 8 game schedule plus playoffs.
