The Flow Basketball Fall 3-on-3 League is an exciting new opportunity to advance players' "game-like" development in a fun competitive environment.
The Fall League runs August 31 to Oct 24. The Gr 6-8 Division will gather three (3) times per week for one hour: Mon and Wed evenings and Sat mornings. The athletes will focus on individual skills training with intense focus on shooting and ball handling plus multi-player concepts that work in the 3-on-3 scheme such as give & go, screens, spacing, ball movement, man-to-man and help defense.
Saturdays will be reserved for 3-on-3 games. Coaches will divide the girls into teams of 3-4 girls each. The teams will compete against each other throughout the Fall season. The League will be a round-robin format. The teams count their cumulative points throughout the season to be used to create a seeded bracket for the final tournament on Oct 21.
Developmentally speaking, 3-on-3 is a more effective learning scheme than 5-on-5 because with only three players, every athlete must be engaged at every moment. On offense, the athletes are either with the ball or actively moving without the ball via cuts and screens. On defense, they are guarding the ball or getting in position to help.
3-on-3 offers a high frequency experience for developing an in-depth understanding of half-court movement, spacing, attacking and defending in great detail. There are no plays. Time is spent on understanding and perfecting basketball principles and implementing skills.
Plus, it is just fun & friendly, a great place for young basketball athletes to build their skills and knowledge of the game. All sessions will be conducted with COVID-19 safety precautions with each athlete and family signing the Safety Procedures agreement.
