3v3 Summer League

About the 3V3 Summer League

2018 Registration is now open!

League Overview

3v3 is a fast-paced exciting game that teaches the patterns of movement in basketball while encouraging creativity and cooperative team play.

Teams can sign up for Tuesday or Wednesday nights.  Divisions are based on your child's current grade as of the registration date.  A minimum of 4 teams is required per division.  If there are not enough teams registered for a specific division, teams will be offered to play on the alternate night.  If playing on an alternate night is not possible, your registration fees refunded.  Beyond this, we are not able to honor "special requests" for scheduling.

Game Schedules

In the second week of May, a preliminary schedule will be mailed to all coaches.  The first three weeks of the schedule will include  opponents, time, and location.  Opponents will be determined by each team's self evaluation during the registration process (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).  The remaining 4 weeks will include a 90 minute window in which the remaining games will be played.

After the 3rd week of the season, a final schedule will be sent to all coaches.  The final 4 weeks of the season will be scheduled for competitive balance using the results of the games played during weeks 1-3.  The block of time for the games should not change from the preliminary schedule. 

We will attempt to schedule younger grades earlier in the night.  Due to gym space limitations during the first two weeks of the season,  younger grades will have to play at later time slots.

Forfeits will not be tolerated. If your team forfeits, Middleton Basketball Club reserves the right to fill the rest of your scheduled games. Please make sure you have enough players on your team to avoid these circumstances.

Team Registration

Team registration normally involves a group of school friends or players who have played together in the past.  Registering as a team allows parents and players to decide who they play with and guarantees that they will be included in the league.  A team can have as many as 10 players on their roster, but only 6 players are allowed to suit up on a given night.

If you register as a team, you will NOT register as an individual.

Individual Registration

Players who do not have a team can register as individuals seeking a team.   If there are enough “free agents” for a specific grade, the MBC will send an email to those parents two weeks prior to the end of the team registration period.  This email will include the contact information for all free agents who signed up for that grade. 

The MBC does not assign players to teams or create teams for individuals.  It is the responsibility of the parents/players to form a team, determine which night to play, and decide which parent will coach the team.  Any parents/players who agree to form a team will then use the Team Registration to sign up for league play and pay the registration fees. 

At the end of the registration process, the contact information for any individuals who have not joined a team will be sent to the coaches of the registered teams.  Any team(s) wishing to add additional players can then contact the players/parents directly.  Just be aware, it is not guaranteed that a player will be asked to join an existing team.   

The MBC does not collect fees when individuals register because we cannot guarantee that every player will be placed on a team.  If your child does end up joining an existing team, it is the responsibility of the parents to determine how to distribute the fees that were already collected as part of the team registration.

Waivers

Each player is required to complete the waiver below before they attend their first game.

MBC Player Waiver

 

Jerseys

Teams are required to have jerseys of the same color and with unique numbers.  As part of the MBC 3v3 team registration process, you can optionally purchase team jerseys through the MBC.   If you choose to purchase jerseys through the MBC, you can use the form below after you have completed the registration process and paid for the jerseys.  Jerseys are ordered as a team, not as individuals, so please be sure to purchase jerseys for the entire team during the registration process!

If you think you may add additional players to your roster, please consider ordering an extra jersey or two.  After the initial jersey purchase, we are unable to order additional jerseys.

  • 2 games per night. Each game consists of two 10-minute halves. Running clock.
  • 3 minutes half time.
  • No time outs.
  • Technical fouls are automatic 2 points and possession of the ball.
  • On shooting fouls, points are awarded as if the shot was made (2 or 3 points). One additional point is awarded if the shot attempt is successful. Possession changes after the foul.
  • On or after the 5th team foul OF THE GAME, each common foul shall result in 1 point and possession for the fouled team.
  • Stalling is not allowed. A warning will be issued and a 10-second "shot clock" count will be administered by the referee. Failure to shoot within ten seconds will result in a turnover. Starting with the second stalling violation, the penalty will be a turnover plus 2 points for the offended team.

  • Ball must be checked in a sportsmanship manner at the top of the key after each dead ball (No out of bounds plays).
  • After a made basket, both feet of a player possessing the ball must move beyond the 3-point arc, but it does not need to be checked. Checking here is a turnover.
  • Substitutions may only be made during a dead ball (a made shot is not a dead ball).  If a team substitutes after a made basket, they will be given a warning.  A second offense will result in a technical foul.
  • Scoring is the same as a regular game.
  • Pressing is allowed for 7th and 8th grade leagues, but the ball must still be taken past the 3-point line before shooting. For 3rd through 6th grade, defense may played anywhere once the ball is taken back past the 3-point line. Intentionally stalling by not taking the ball back will result in a technical foul.
