Boys 1st grade program
The CBAA Boys 1st grade program is all about development for these young rising stars of the game. The league emphasizes fun, while also teaching basic principles. Our 1st grade division utilizes a 3 v 3 format for play. The 3 v 3 format is recommended by USA Basketball, the Jr. NBA as well as many other basketball experts.
The primary benefits of the 3 v 3 format include:
Teams are formed with no more than 6 to 7 players and play once a weekend for 1.5 hours. The teams practice for 45 minutes and then play games for the remaining 45 minutes. Games are played within the half court. Each game has a referee who will call fouls and other violations. With each foul/violation, the referee will explain to the player why a certain call was made.
