MAINE HOOPS EVENTS ARE NOW OPENED TO EVERYONE!! 

2022 Maine Hoops Summer 3 on 3 Basketball Leagues

  • Location - Gilman Street Basketball Club - Waterville 

  • Season runs Monday June 13-Sunday July 24thGames will be played during the evenings and weekends. (teams can request 2 weekends of no games) You will get a full season schedule at the start of the season for planning purposes, however, there will be flexibility for changes.

  • Brackets grades 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, Open Division (College/Adults) - Grades as of Sept 2022. (brackets might change a little based on sign-ups) Boys and girls brackets separate. We recommend a minimum of 4 players per team.

  • 12 game regular seasonSingle Elimination Playoffs - during final week. Two games each week, two 12 minute halves. Games are half court and same day for both games. One Official. Registration fee $450

Advantages of 3 on 3

  • Stresses fundamentally sound man to man defense. Fewer players on court means more touches per player-every player is involved. Offense tends to stress fundamental half court offensive sets, pick and roll, give and go, back door cuts, screening away etc. It's FUN and something different. You only have to get 3 kids for a game instead of 5 which during the summer is a nice little benefit. 

Individual Registrations

We recognize you might not have enough players for a team but still want to play. You can register as an Independent player and once we have enough players in a division we will put teams together. No cost to register as an individual, if placed on a team the fee will be $125 per player.
