WELCOME COACHES AND SITE DIRECTORS
Let us help you EARN MONEY and IMPROVE your basketball program!
You put countless hours into your program as a coach. Wouldn’t you like to be compensated for your efforts appropriately... AND improve your program? YOU CAN!
As site director, you will make a variety of decisions about your league that will determine the amount of money you can earn for your program and coaching staff. We will take time to listen to your goals and preferences. Contact Mike at email@example.com to learn more.
Every coach wants to find ways to give their program that extra edge.
Your players will improve skills faster playing 3 on 3 than playing 5 on 5. The smaller team size increases each player’s role, allowing them to work on all areas of their game. Players will see more offensive and defensive opportunities and teamwork is encouraged through basic fundamental play (give and go’s, back door cuts, pick and rolls).
What the public thinks of you & your program matters.
Kids LOVE the 3 on 3 environment: friends, music, competition and FUN! Parents LOVE watching their child involved in every play. A 3 on 3 league brings in hundreds of players of all ages. The format definitely strengthens your relationships within the community and among various-aged players in your program.
WHY HOST A MIDWEST 3 ON 3 LEAGUE?
The amount of money you and your program can earn by hosting a Midwest 3 on 3 league will depend on several factors. As a site director, you will make decisions about some of these factors:
A brand-new league will earn approximately $3000 in its first year. A well-established league could easily bring in $10,000 or more! Upon completion of your league, Midwest 3 on 3 will cut checks to the program(s) and/or league workers of your choice.
Midwest 3 on 3 has proven to raise thousands of dollars for other high school athletic programs. So many fundraisers revolve around your athletes "selling" various products. The parents and the players typically have negative feelings towards these types of "product sales" fundraisers. By hosting a 3 on 3 basketball league or tournament, you won't be "selling" someone else's products. Rather, you will be providing an excellent opportunity for your community's younger basketball players to improve and develop their basketball skills.
3 on 3 basketball offers a fun, hard-to-find environment for today’s youth in which to play basketball. Gone are the days of kids forming their own teams and playing pick-up games for hours at the park. Today’s basketball players spend most of their basketball time in very structured and controlled settings. With a Midwest 3 on 3 basketball league, players work as a team to coach themselves. They have the perfect opportunity to work on different aspects of their game in a low-stakes environment. There is no coach there to "critique” everything they do. You will see post players improving their ball handling and passing. You will see guards improving their rebounding and post-up moves. With only three players on the court, each player has increased offensive and defensive opportunities.
By offering the youngest of players a FUN, low-stress environment in which to enjoy playing basketball, you will be adding another component towards improving your basketball program. Be sure to ask about the optional 3 on 3 clinics that can precede a league to help teach some 3 on 3 strategies to the players.
When you combine fun, competitive basketball with hundreds of boys and girls of all ages, you have a great basketball atmosphere! The younger players love to watch the older players. You may have your Varsity players reffing the games and interacting with the players. They become powerful role models and motivators! This league format fosters great relationships between your varsity players and your younger players coming up in the program.
The parents enjoy watching 3 on 3 games because their child is always involved in the action!
If you are a Varsity coach, you may find that hosting a Midwest 3 on 3 league will bring in more positive community feedback than anything else you’ve tried!
