3ON3  Academy
Developing Basketball I.Q.
 
Our 3 on 3 Academy offers an exciting opportunity to enhance individual and team skills.  The smaller team size increases offensive and defensive opportunities for each player as well encourages teamwork through team play (pick and rolls, give and go's, back door cuts etc.).  The intent of the 3 on  3 games is to provide game-like situations that prepare athletes for 5 on 5 play.
 
Film Study (Fall Only)
GLBA is committed to developing the Compete Athlete and in order to do so, we film all 3 on 3 basketball games. Coaches meet with their team once a week and use the game film to breakdown the way players can improve their reads on the court, shooting and ball handling skills.
