What is Miniball?
Basketball programme for Year 3-8 (7-13 years old) participants.
Skill development and game component.
Both 3x3 and 5 v 5 opportunities.
Basketball for all abilities.
Why the change from previous leagues?
We have changed from delivering just a 5v5 league with games to a 3x3 programme which also includes a skill development component. This change has been made for a number of reasons with a focus to help remove barriers that limit participation and to help develop an understanding of the fundamental skills required to enjoy the game.
More touches of the ball per player
More opportunities to be in a decision making position
High paced game
Multi-faceted sessions to keep them engaged
Removes the requirement for a coach.
Fewer numbers are required.
Transport – with no more than 5 players needed only one car is required per team.
Lower costs per team.
Will all leagues change to 3x3 leagues?
No not at all leagues will be moving to this format. We will be focussing this on our Year3/4 and Year 5/6 age groups to make sure they have a sound understanding of the fundamentals to serve them well moving forward.
How many players do we need?
All 3x3 Miniball leagues require a minimum of 3 players per team and no more than 5.
All 5 v 5 leagues require a minimum of 5 players and a maximum of 10.
Is there a weekly draw?
No not for any 3x3 programme, you register for a time slot relevant to your team's grade and show up to participate at this time each week.
For all competitive 5 v 5 grades, each team will be allocated one game per week within a draw.
How long is each 3x3 session?
Sessions are scheduled for 1 hour with the Skill Development Component taking 20-30 Minutes and Games to be played for the remainder. Games will be between 6-8 minutes with teams rotating on and off the court.
Is this a competition?
No, all 3x3 leagues will be non-competitive with scores not being kept. This is to make sure that the emphasis is on having fun and developing skills.
Our 5 v 5 leagues have a league table and scores are kept
