 3-On-3
Half Court League

 3-ON-3 LEAGUE FOR BOYS & GIRLS (5th-8th grade)

Mondays from September 9- October 28
Games at either 5:30pm or 6:30pm at Total Turf

Crispin Basketball is excited to announce the return of our fall basketball league for players in 5th-8th grade for 2019.

The format of this league is designed to be both instructional and competitive. Each evening will contain 3 segments including an instructional component of 3-on-3 half court concepts, a controlled scrimmage component, and a competitive play component. Instructional points of emphasis throughout the season will include: moving without the ball, help defense, setting screens, using a ball screen, pick and roll, pick and pop, penetrate and pass, defending a ball screen, and more.

The league will be a half court 3-on-3 format and each team will have about 5-6 players per team. Teams may enter by sending Erin Crispin the name of your team and then registering under that name. 

The league will play on Monday evenings from September 9th through October 28th at Total Turf Experience under the direction of Joe Crispin. Games will be played at 5:30pm or 6:30pm (*please note: you only play at one hour, not both hours). Volunteer coaches are once again needed. Cost is $120 per player.  If your player has not played in one of our leagues in the past, a reversible Crispin Basketball jersey will also need to be purchased with your registration.

Similar to our summer leagues, there will be two divisions with our more advanced 7th and 8th graders, and our 5th and 6th graders each being group together.

Client Testimonials

We want to thank all of you for a wonderful spring season. Our whole family is excited about Joey being a part of the Crispin Basketball program.

Joey has spent most of the last few winters with some sort of cough, cold, or infection, that has restricted his time out on the basketball court. When he was out there, he wasn’t able to have fun. That was NOT the case this past month. He looked forward to practice and loved the games/tournaments. He enjoyed every minute of this spring season and cannot wait to start the summer league. He will have surgery in 10 days, but he is already making plans to get back out on the court afterwards. Saying “He had a lot of fun” does not accurately describe this past month for Joey.  READ MORE >

SON PLAYED ON 5TH GRADE CLUB TEAM

Our family has nothing but positive things to say about our experience with the Crispin Basketball program.  Everything from the quality of the training and coaching staff, the training atmosphere, opportunity to work with members of the Rowan basketball team, information sharing with the parents, etc., was top notch.  For the past three years, we’ve had a seldom used basketball hoop in the driveway and basketball was just another winter activity. Upon joining the club, Zach took the initiative to try to get better on his own, applying what he learned during his training sessions even when the weather conditions were less than ideal.  While it’s too soon to predict the type of basketball player he might become, he definitely developed a greater appreciation and love for the game at a time when he was contemplating giving up the sport for good.

SON PLAYED ON 5TH GRADE CLUB TEAM

As parents, we truly appreciate the care and thought that goes into the Crispin Basketball program. It is really refreshing to find a high-level basketball program that has the best interest of kids at heart – not only developing skills, a basketball IQ, and a love for the game, but most importantly character.

Also, it’s difficult to match the wealth of experience and knowledge of Crispin Basketball! Your coaches have coached and played at the highest levels and know the game inside-out. Unlike a lot of coaches and basketball programs that focus on winning at any cost, Crispin Basketball takes the “long view” and gives kids every opportunity to develop their skills and become smart, fundamentally-sound, hard-working, well-rounded, team-oriented players.  READ MORE >
