Our goal for YMCA 3on3 youth basketball leagues is to teach the fundamental skills of basketball during weekly skills practices and to also encourage fun game play. Practices will focus on skills-based drills sessions that will prepare players for non-coached 3on3 games. Court officials will be present to manage each game. On game nights, each team will play a double header. Our 3on3 leagues range from Grades 1-12 and will vary by session. At a minimum eight skills practices and six games are guaranteed throughout the eight-week session. Parents are encouraged to cheer on all players but please refrain from coaching during gameplay.
