We think 3 on 3 basketball is awesome for skill development at all age levels because…You get MORE touches on the ball (you're only sharing it with 3 players instead of 5). Six passes is an average possession in 3 on 3, meaning each player will have the ball at least TWICE every possession. You have more space to try new moves and practice new skills. Your defensive footwork and agility gets challenged because you have to cover more distance with fewer players on the court. You IMPROVE passing, dribbling, shooting, cutting, spacing, rebounding and defense. All players have equal opportunity to make plays and help their team win.

Program Coordinator: Lyndsey Younger
Instructor: Keith Witter (Southern Illinois Storm)
