Youth League

The A.i.P. (Anything Is Possible) Youth Basketball League is the first competitive 3 on 3 basketball league developed to give players a chance to learn the game and showcase their skills against other top talent.  Our youth league attracts players from all over the country.  This league was specifically designed to give players a chance to get more repetition offensively and defensively.  Our 3 on 3 format will help players increase their bball iQ, as they have to react to game situations much faster than in a 5 on 5 game. 

 

 3 letters, 3 players, A.i.P.!  In every game played, each athlete has gained something valuable.  They have gained a better understanding of the game and the formula of working as a team to achieve a common goal.  There is a message in winning and losing.  We believe the message will take you further than the moves!  Our league is built on the 3 simple letters, A.i.P., in efforts to help players realize Anything Is Possible when trying to achieve your goals on and off the basketball court.  Our goal is to promote exciting game play while helping athletes display a positive attitude through good sportsmanship.  Our 3 on 3 concept is personable and makes every player feel a part of the team.  

This is the first league that allows youth players to feel like pros.  Our games will take place at the world famous Pat The Roc Basketball Skills Academy, the same court that some of the top NBA and WNBA players train on.  Our championship environment inspires the youth to bring their "A" game when they step on the floor.  Each player will develop the ultimate confidence as they learn to go head to head with their opponents in an intense matchup.  With 3 players on the floor there will be more room for players to develop offensively.  On the defensive side, players will learn to play man to man defense with less help.    
Each week players will suit up in their A.i.P. uniforms and compete against a new team in hopes to push their team to the top of the standings.  Our 6 week season creates a competitive edge that forces each team to bring their best every week.  Each game teammates will develop a chemistry and comradery, in order to become one cohesive unit.  With only 3 players on the floor, this gives more responsibility to each teammate, teaching the importance of communication.  Players will battle it out against new competition and encourage their teammates to reach victory.  At the conclusion of each season there will be a championship team crowned!  For individual accolades, there will be other recognition including the infamous MVP trophy.

Players must gather with their team for a 3 minute pre game warm up.  Games will start on time.  Players must select a captain for the coin toss.  Games will be tracked by a scoreboard and will have one referee to officiate play.  The scoreboard and game clock will be visible so there is no confusion of the score or time.  No player or spectator must interfere with the score keeper.  Players must stop play upon hearing a whistle.  All shooting fouls will result in one free throw.  Technical fouls will result in one free throw.       

Our league is built on integrity and respect which is what our referees will emphasize.   We developed a 3 on 3 concept to allow players the proper way to learn the game.  In a 3 on 3 setting, every player on the floor is forced to be a factor in play.   Each player will get more touches, learn how to move the ball, get open, set screens, and develop a feel for the game that will translate into effective 5 on 5 season play.  3 on 3 teaches the core fundamentals and will help athletes develop better habits on the floor.  Sometimes in 5 on 5 full court settings, players get left behind, hindering them from ever learning to play the game the right way.
