As part of our close affiliation with the NBA and in particular, the JR.NBA, we have been named the official host for New York for the JR. NBA 3 V 3 League for 2017. We will be hosting games at the Island Garden, Academy of St. Joseph in Brentwood, Brewster Sports Center and Albany. The league will be broken into four sections with the champions meeting at the Island Garden in early March to win a spot at the JR. NBA National Championships which will be held in Atlanta on March 30 and 31.
This is a half court 3 on 3 league for teams consisting on three to five players. There will be 9 league games followed by a single elimination playoff round. PLEASE NOTE THAT EACH GAME RUNS FOR 20 MINUTES AND THERE WILL BE 2-3 GAMES PLAYED EACH DATE A TEAM IS SCHEDULED. THIS LEAGUE IS NOT MEANT IN ANY WAY TO REPLACE SUPER LEAGUE BUT INSTEAD SHOULD BE HANDLED AS AN ADDITION THAT WOULD BE SOME FUN FOR PLAYERS ALREADY PLAYING IN OTHER LEAGUES.
JR.NBA rules do not permit any one to coach during the the game. The coach may only substitute. Also, since it is played with three players on a half court with running time, those interested should understand that this is a very different basketball experience than regular league play.
The JR. NBA League will have divisions for 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U and 14U. There will be separate divisions for boys and girls. Please note that for the 9U and 14U, there will be no national championship.
Each participant will receive a JR.NBA reversible and other gear. Teams are comprised of 3-5 players. Registration is done by team only. Individuals cannot register unless they are part of a team.
League play will begin in early January and end by early March. We will designate specific dates when the league will be played and will not be able to accommodate scheduling requests as each date utilized will have special arrangements and hopefully some surprises. Games will not conflict with Super League scheduling.
That being said, 3 on 3 basketball, provides a fun experience and has become very popular in recent years. It has even been designated an Olympic Sport. It is a great way to fill out your schedule with a different, competitive and fun experience.
