  • LEAGUE FORMAT
    • Our new 3-on-3 summer league is intended to accelerate skills development by reducing players on the court. Each player will get more touches, passes, and shots and have more space for basic principles of the game. This format also stresses "help side" defense, strategic rotations, and motion offense. This format, that stresses Y core values, is ideal for players looking to improve and better-compete in 5-on-5 play.
