3v3 Summer League

About the 3V3 Summer League

League Overview

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

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 schedule will be mailed to all coaches.  Opponents will be determined by each team's self evaluation during the registration process (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced).  

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

Please contact Matt ( if you would like to be added to a free agent list.  We will do our best to facilitate contact between free agents of the same grade level so they have the opportunity to form their own teams .

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.


Teams are required to have jerseys of the same color and with unique numbers.  Each team is responsible for supplying their own jerseys. 

League Rules

  • Maximum of 10 players on Roster. No more than 6 may play per game unless the opposing coach agrees to allow more than six.
  • Games are played on a half court.
  • 2-minute warm up.
  • 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.
  • ZERO TOLERANCE: ARGUING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED Violators will be asked to leave and/or removed from league.
  • Seat Belt Rule: Coaches must remain seated during games.
  • Teams must begin with at least 2 players and may play with 1 player.
  • 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.
