BENEFITS & RULES
FUN FOR KIDS
Players have fun playing 3 v 3. You get the ball more, get to shoot more, and have the chance to develop your skills. Every parent likes to see their child get plenty of opportunities to be involved in the action.
As a result of getting open more frequently, players get to have the ball in their hands more often. Having the ball in your hand more often allows the players involved to work on the skills of dribbling, driving, finishing, shooting, passing, etc. more than they would in a five-on-five game where they barely touch the ball.
MORE ROOM TO OPERATE
A lot of younger players, especially under the age of 12 don’t have the skill, strength, or experience to utilize their basketball skills with 10 players on the court. 3 on 3 gives them more room to operate and practice their skills.
No coaches mean kids had to make decisions for themselves. Players today don’t have the opportunity as often as in the past. Most playing opportunities are parent or coach directed. The players in the 3 on 3 league have to figure things out. That helps them think the game, communicate, and become better teammates.
