Why play 3×3?

Because it is easy for a player to get lost in a 5 on 5 game and rarely see the ball. That doesn’t happen in 3 on 3. All players stay involved and every player is central to the action. It’s a great way to develop 1 on 1, 2 on 2, and 3 on 3 skills in a controlled competitive environment.

  • Less players = more shots!
  • Shorter possession = more touches for everyone
  • More transitions from offence to defence = players react with split second decisions
  • Beginner or Elite – every player benefits

3×3 Basketball X Style

Teams are pooled into groups of 4-6, playing a series of 10min round-robin style games. Where multiple divisions exist on the same day, teams may be moved into higher or lower pools as the competition progresses.

There are four 8-week seasons played each year – Summer, Autumn, Winter & Spring. Each season runs within with the Victoria school term calendar.

Games are scheduled in 60-90min blocks. Times are dependent on the day, venue & competition type. For more information, refer to the current season Registration Page.

You can register as a team or individual. As a team, you select your players ensuring 3-4 people are available each round. Individual registrations are placed into teams with 3-5 players.
