IYS 3on3 Basketball focuses on both skill building and competitive situations. In order to achieve this, participants spend the first part of their 90 minute session developing fundamentals and skills needed for basketball. During the last part of their session, they are divided into 3-man teams and play 3on3 games. This format allows for not only optimal learning, but also equal playing time.

What is league age?
League age is the age you are on August 1, 2012 for the 2012-2013 sports year. That age is "frozen" for the entire year and that is the age that you are for that particular sports year.
Why does IYS use league age?
IYS uses league age in order to allow players to play with their same team for an entire year thereby reinforcing the concepts of team bonding and team cohesion.
My child is 8 on August 1, 2012 but then turns 9 three weeks later. How do you determine what his league age is?
Because he was 8 on 8/1/12, his league age is 8. Although he turned a year older a few weeks later, his age on 8/1/12 is the determining factor for placement for the 2012-2013 sports year.
If a child has a birthday after the cut-off date and turns a year older, does he have to move up a division?
No. All that matters is the age he was on the cut-off date (8/1/12). Children do not move up divisions due to birthdays during the year or else we would be reorganizing teams each week. It is similar to the school year cut-off - if a child turns a year older, they do not automatically move up to the next grade the next day.
