3V3 Homepage

Welcome to AMBA's 3v3 Program! **2019 INFO BELOW **

AMBA started our 3v3 program in the spring of 2011 with 67 players; registration and interest in this fast-paced, skill-building game has increased steadily over the last 8 years.

The goal of 3v3 is for players to fully run the game; FIBA rules do not allow for a coach. Parents are still required to scorekeep / timekeep for their player's 3v3 games.

We understand that U9 and U11 players need an adult on the bench to supervise and provide skill-development. If you have volunteered to coach this age group, please keep in mind that teaching players to make decisions, including when to sub and ask for a time-out is important.
