Advantages of 3-on-3 Basketball:
Athletes receive far more “action time” vs the typical 5-on-5 game as there are fewer interruptions to the game, less players on the court, and more time with the ball per player than in full court basketball. This means your son/daughter will rarely be out on the sideline and in turn will be more engaged in the on court activity!
-18 minute running clock OR first team to 21 pts (by 2’s and 1’s)
-20 second shot clock
-Substitutions after every dead ball or by team strategy
-“Loser’s” ball, free clears to 3 pt line
-1 time out per team per regulation game
-At 7 team fouls team receives Freethrow + ball possession
