3v3 Attack Leagues Grades 5-12!

NEW! 5 week Fall 3v3 Middle School and High School league. This league (Game Play) is designed for kids at all skill levels, teams will be split up evenly based on their skill level to ensure competitive game play. Games will consist of 3v3 half court and full court 15 minute halfs. Each game will have their own board certified ref to ensure competitive “fair” play.

Benefits of this league include:

More touches, shots, handling the ball, passes, rebounds, etc... for players: On average players will touch the ball 1/6 of the time as opposed to 1/10 of the time in 5v5.

Everyone is a guard: One of our rules in 3v3 is if you get a rebound you dribble the ball out. All players need to learn to dribble with their head up and look to advance the ball.

Harder to defend: 3v3 is harder to defend than 5v5, it is more difficult to get away with poor defense so players naturally have to have better help side and ball containment.

Great way to teach almost all screens and cuts that you would utilize in a 5v5 offense: pass and cut, screen aways, hard curls, ball screens, dribble drive action etc...

When: Sunday mornings From 9am-12pm / October 7th – 14th – 21st – 28th – November 4th  (5 weeks)

Who: NCAA Division (Middle School) Boys & Girls grades 5-8 (Max 25)

Blue Wave Basketball Fundraising Committee
Blue Wave Basketball 

Fundraising Committee Announcement



As most of you already know, Blue Wave Basketball is a non-profit organization that prides itself on the fact that we have never turned a kid away for inability to pay.  This is a vital part of our identity here at Blue Wave and will remain a part of our culture even as we grow. 

The amazing growth that we have seen as an organization has also increased our scholarship out-put.  In order to maintain our identity, allow kids who otherwise would not have an opportunity to afford the invaluable experiences of playing AAU basketball and still maintain competitive pricing for our non-scholarship kids; we have identified a need to enhance our fundraising goals. 

We have recruited two Blue Wave Mom's who are eager to jump in and really drive our fundraising efforts.  They have some great ideas planned and they are excited to see how we can all come together as a program to make sure that all kids who want it, have the ability to learn and play basketball with Blue Wave.   

It's important to remember that this is bigger than just basketball... helping these fundraising efforts is giving kids an opportunity to cultivate new friendships and networks, a safe place when they need it most and for some of our players- travelling out of state to AAU tournaments is the only opportunity they have to travel and experience being out of Maine.  For some of our scholarship players- playing Blue Wave basketball is life altering and opens doors that they wouldn't otherwise be able to walk through.  It is an amazing feeling to be able to give that chance to a child who needs it... so whenever and however you can jump in to help our fundraising efforts and events will be most appreciated and rewarding. 

Andrea Jackson (207-332-0810) and Rene Hoglund (207-712-4701) will be the primary force behind our fundraising.  They will be organizing several events throughout each year to benefit Bluewave Basketball.  They can also be reached at: . 

If you have any fundraising ideas- Andrea and Rene want to hear them!  If you own or work for a business that looks to donate to non-profit organizations- please let them know.   


 


We sincerely appreciate all of your support and look forward to some fun filled events and basketball!

 

Thank You-

Steve, Shawn, Dajuan, Pils & Bluewave Fundraising Committee
