Why is 1 on 1 and 3 on 3 better for you to develop your game as a player versus 5 on 5? There are less players. Why is that important? When there aren’t as many players on the court, you spend more time with the ball applying all of the footwork that you’re learning against defenders. In addition, our 3 on 3 format gives every player an opportunity to shoot, dribble, and pass. Working on all aspects of their game.
