8th Grade Girls: 3 on 3 Basketball program
Nov 09 - Jan 31
Crocker Middle School
From Nov 09, 2021 to Jan 31, 2022
DescriptionThe 7th/8th grade girls program will be a shift in our programming where we have traditionally run a 5-on-5 program to where, this winter we will run a 3-on-3 program. This program will follow the 3 on 3 Olympics akin to what the USA Women won Olympic Gold this past summer. We will divide the groups into two divisions: an upper division (made of our traditionally A players from both grade levels) and a lower division (made up of our traditionally B players from both grade levels). For each division, girls will be placed with a group of 8 with a coach. These 8 girls will make two 4-player teams that will have the same coach for practices and games. The rationale behind running the 3-on-3 vs. the traditional 5-on-5 is threefold: 1. We traditionally do not get enough girls to run a full fledged league and since we aren’t playing with the other organizations this year, we created smaller teams; 2. We feel that this is the best way to provide girls with skill development as more kids will be participating in plays and games; 3. This allows us to keep our teams competitively balanced with upper and lower divisions and have kids participate in an appropriately leveled program. We will still balance the teams within the divisions and host a playoffs at the end of the season with the winner taking home the Crocker Cup!
