In many respects, 3 on 3 basketball is superior to the traditional 5 on 5 game. The format gives players more touches on the ball and makes basketball easier to understand and play. Primary instructional emphasis of the league is the development of dribbling, passing and shooting skills, and understanding offensive/defensive roles and tactics. All players receive equal amounts of instruction and play at least 50% of each league game. Games and practices are coordinated by at least 2 KidsPlay coaches. A team jersey is included in the fee.
