How to play a continuous 3 on 2 fast break?
On offense, teams will learn how to find an outlet pass, running lanes, court spacing, passing angles, how to make perimeter shots & finish around the hoop under pressure. On defense, teams will focus on stopping the ball, rotating, creating deflections, grabbing loose balls & boxing out.
Each session/game is fast paced & focuses on conditioning as games are continuous 3 on 2 full court.

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.
