We will divide by grade and skill. We will do some skill development during the two hours. But the majority of the time is pick up ball! We will also have a devotion half way through the time.
All participants must have an AAU Card for Insurance Purposes
Cards are $16 for extended coverage benefits. Please print and bring a copy. This does not mean you are joining AAU. Triple Threat needs you to have this as we are an AAU organization and this is how we get our player insurance. This will last for one year.
NOTE: Pick-Up is open to ALL players. You do not have to be a part of Triple Threat to join this program. Please invite anyone you want. All games will take place at NRCA gyms, and we will have three gyms operating - one for girls and two the for boys.
Go to the High School Gym at North Raleigh Christian Academy - 7900 Perry Creek Rd.
- Parents are welcome to stay and watch (No coaching from the sidelines) or use this time to go out to dinner!
- Players need to bring a basketball and a water bottle, just like pick-up in the park!
- Players need to dress for playing with appropriate basketball shoes.
Back when we (those of us who are over 30 years old) grew up we went to the local park to play basketball. This is where friendships were formed, "game point" was fierce, and where you got better on your own. In today's sprawling communities, there are not many parks where players go to play. Hence, today's player is missing out on not only the fun of "pick-up" but the challenge of it. In today's culture of hyper-camps, clinics and personal coaches (all of which 3T adds to that chaos!) I believe more and more there needs to be a place where today's kids can JUST GO PLAY! I notice with my own sons with how much fun they have when they just play with friends in a tackle football game or a game of 3 on 3 with the neighbors.
The Format: 2 hours of basketball. This is 15 minutes of drills, 5-10 minutes of a Biblical devotion reading and the rest is good old fashioned pick up basketball. Coaches will help organize the games, but we will just let them play! Games will be to seven points or more depending on the skill level and players waiting. Winner stays on. Teams may change throughout the night.
P - Play - Players need to just play, and not be coached through every play.
I - Inspire - Each session will start with 30 minutes of fun and challenging drills to inspire players to get better.
C - Compete - Games will be competitive! This is not back yard pick up.
K - Kids Only - Letting them just be kids to enjoy the game. Parents can watch but don't coach. This is their time!
U - Unity - This will be a place where friendships are strengthened and new ones are formed.
P - Pray - 3T wants to continue the tradition that James Naismith started when he first introduced basketball, which is to put God above basketball.
