Why Play 3-on-3?
Various sports have their own game modification: 2v2 volleyball, 4v4 soccer, 7-on-7 football. Why doesn’t basketball have its own game modification? Why do we only play 5-on-5?
3-on-3 basketball incorporates all of the game’s skills: dribbling, passing, shooting, footwork and defense. It also includes all of the tactical skills of the game: pass and cut, on-ball screen, off-ball screen, dribble handoff, penetration reaction, and help and recover. 3-on-3 basketball eliminates all of the negatives towards long-term development: positions, zone defense, full-court press and set plays. 3-on-3 basketball also provides:
Greater player involvement: Fewer players = more time possessing ball = greater opportunity to improve = greater enjoyment
More random practice, leading to effective transfer to future games and more permanent changes in performance
