On defense, teams will focus on stopping the ball, rotating, creating deflections, grabbing loose balls & boxing out.

The Higher Learning Basketball 3 on 2 Fast Break League was a great success this year and my squad asked when the next league started immediately following our last game. This style of play helps encourage a sense of urgency, how to find the outlet pass, filling the lanes and moving without the ball. Great program and we look forward to the next season

Thanks for all your hard work and for bringing a great program to our town. Your professionalism, attention to detail, and knowledge is second to none. It was fun for the kids and great to talk hoops with you guys.

The Fast Break League was an excellent opportunity to have our kids get out on the court, outside and under the lights, for some high-touch basketball.

Each player received equal playing time, which gave the kids that don't get a ton of basketball practice the opportunity to be directly involved in a fast-paced games. the league also gives kids the chance to intermingle and see children from other towns.

Great job to Sean and Eric and we will see you next year.
