Game Play - Hoopfest Model: 3-on-3

1.    We use 3-on-3 Game Play in order to provide all students with maximum playing           time and to increase the number of ball touches.  The SPS basketball program was         designed to be a developmental program and IS NOT intended to replicate or                 replace AAU.

2.    Divide Court: Competitive and Non-competitive sides

3.    Divide players into 4 players per team

4.    Each game will be 5-8 minutes using a running clock (Coaches determine the                 length used for all games before starting the first game.)

5.    Each basket and free throw made is equal to one point

6.    No stealing of dribble

7.    Free entry pass above designated line/area

8.    Defensive rebound must be brought back to designated line/area before                       attempting offensive play
