Crispin Basketball is excited to announce the return of a fall basketball league for players in 5th-8th grade for the fall of 2018.
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. Attempts can be made to keep players together from the summer season as a way of maintaining competitive balance. The first evening on September 10 will also be an evaluation night with final rosters being established prior to September 17.
The league will play on Monday evenings from September 10th through October 29 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 $125 per player which includes a new reversible jersey or $110 if your child already has a jersey and no jersey is needed.
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. Exceptions to this will be determined after our evaluation night. This league is strictly capped for the first 144 players who register.
3-on-3 basketball is quickly becoming a popular sport around the world and is even slated to be in the Olympics for 2020.

As always, our leagues will be are designed with attempts to maximize both development and enjoyment of the game. We hope to see you in the fall.
