WHY 3v3?

Players touch the ball more often. 

In the 5 on 5 game, players can go almost the whole game without repeatedly touching the ball. In 3 on 3, you could touch the ball EVERY possession. When the player gets more experience handling the ball during game situations, the player is going to improve much more than the players who hardly touch the ball in 5 on 5. It doesn’t matter if you are the point guard or the star post player, you’re still going to get more touches in 3 on 3.

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.

Players learn the game.

When there are only six (3 on 3) players on the court, players are more inclined to run the pick-and-roll, screen away, and screen the ball without a coach even telling them to do so, because there are fewer options out there. After a while, they will start to figure things out for themselves which is FANTASTIC and exactly what you want the players to do. With ten (5 on 5) players on the court, a lot of those options aren’t there because they lack skill, strength, and experience. Now, with fewer players on the court, it gives them a split second longer to recognize a situation.

Our 3 on 3 League will give players on average 150% more shots, moves, passes and possessions compared to a typical one hour 5 on 5 game.

3v3 Team Leagues

3 on 3 leagues are an awesome way for players, especially young and developing players, to learn about the game of basketball! With less players on the court, kids can touch the ball more often, establish man-to-man defense a little easier, and work on other fundamentals like dribbling, passing, and shooting. We’ve had such a great experience with our many 3 on 3 activities and are excited for our younger players to get a chance to participate.

3v3 Tournaments

3v3 Camps

Solid Rock’s 3v3 Summer Camp will be 3 days and will include teaching along with 3 on 3 play. 3 on 3 can help young players tremendously when it comes to grasping concepts of spacing, cutting, passing, and moving. Additionally, players touch the ball more on offense and gain a better understanding of man to man techniques on defense. 3 DAYS – 3 ON 3 PLAY, this is Solid Rock Basketball’s 3v3 Summer Camp!
