Student ProgramEmpowering Youth Through Bball

Execution + Decision Making + Leadership

We understand that intense challenges bring about significant change. As a result, we created the ‘Develop & Compete’ program that offers support & guidance in an organized, accountable environment that focuses on developing athlete’s social & emotional skills. Athlete’s will learn positive character traits, discipline, dedication, sacrifice, hard work & responsibility on & off the court.

Our student program presents opportunities for your athlete to explore the possibilities that sports provide. Along with participating in the 3League, your athlete(s) also will have clinics, small group training, travel teams and open gym available to them. Off the court, we provide support & guidance navigating your athlete’s goals and aspirations. Learn More>>


PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

TEACH THE GAME – We teach them the why behind an action, move, and offensive concept. We develop play makers, not play runners. A positive environment is also necessary, we end every sessions with players and coaches encouraging each other even after a tough competitive game!

CULTIVATE LEADERS – This is what makes us different. We encourage our players to do more than play basketball. We provide job & volunteer opportunities, encourage philanthropy & community service, prepare young coaches in our Jr Coaching Program, as well as provide empowerment workshops.

PROVIDE RESOURCES – We provide our parents and players with resources needed to support our players journey. We have partnered with some amazing organizations!

Why 3v3 games are beneficial to players...3v3 BENEFITS

“Playing the game of basketball is very exciting but it can also be a little bit daunting trying to develop skill, learn concepts & apply them full court team play.”

MORE TOUCHES

More touches, shots, rebounds, passes, etc. On average players will touch the ball 1/6 of the time opposed to 1/10 of the time in 5v5.

MORE SPACE

With only 6 players on the court compared to 10, there's more space to operate. More space allows for players to do more, develop guard play skill set and force all players to learn how to dribble with their head up and look to advance the ball.

OFFENSIVE IQ

Learn the 6 ways to play within an 5v5 offensive set. The spacing, ball touches, guard play will allow players to utilize, pass & cut, screens, dribble drive, curls & cuts, etc.

MORE FUN & ACTION

No sitting on the bench equals more fun for all players.

Train. Practice. Play.THE 3LEAGUE

Improving Basketball Performance Through Skill, Practice & Game Play.

3v3 basketball is such a critical component of effective youth basketball development, everyone has gotten so caught up and obsessed with AAU travel/club basketball that 3-on-3 ball has been neglected. That is why we are making an effort at bringing it back!”

The 3League is a fast paced, fun, and competitive half-court co-ed youth player development 3v3 league. The league is divided into divisions based on age and abilities(skill) and focuses on improving basketball performance through skill, practice and game play. There are 6 levels of player development starting at the age 7 through 18+.

It differs from a traditional 3 on 3 leagues in the following areas:

  • High level coaching with consistent coaching tactics, tools & communication
  • We teach the 6 fundamental ways to play the game starting from level 1.
  • A focus on leadership development
  • Rules and regulations adjusted for competition level
