Spring League 3 on 3

To further promote the development of basketball in our basketball community, MPMBA is offering a 6 week 3 on 3 spring league starting on April 22nd. There will be both girls and boys divisions opened to players in Grades 2 to 9. The divisions will be;

Gr 2 – 3              Gr 4 – 5            Gr 6 – 7                Gr 8 - 9

All games will take place Sunday afternoon at Newtown Elementary from 12:00 – 6:00pm. Players will play one hour a week and a schedule will be developed once registration closes on April 7th.

WHY 3 on 3?

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

  • Everyone gets to handle the ball which leads to improved dribble and passing skills.

  • Promotes more one and one (man to man) defense and encourages all players being active in defense.

  • Great way to build your motion offense: moving without the ball, ball screens, dribble drive action etc...

  • Faster game for players of all ages as all players are involved and rely more on the FUNdatmetals of basketball…more shots, passes, rebounds, defending etc...

  • FUN!! Most important part of the program!

Registration Opens Monday March 12th.

Cost will be $40. All players must have a reversible (white/dark) basketball jersey – one can be purchased on the first day for $25.
