Crafty 3x3 Basketball develops players in grades 1-6 with its focus on doing the things smart team basketball players do. The benefit of 3 on 3 games vs traditional youth leagues is players will get more touches of the ball. Develop smarter, savvier players in a format different than 5 on 5 basketball. Learn how a passion for the game develops from playing beautiful, team-based basketball with an emphasis on combining skill and smarts.

  • SATURDAYS (2/8-3/28): GRADE 1-2 8:30 a.m. (Franklin) 10:00 a.m. (Foxboro) coed; GRADE 3-4: boys 10:00 a.m. (Franklin) 11:30 a.m. (Foxboro) and girls 11:30 a.m. (Franklin) 1:00 p.m. (Foxboro); GRADE 5-6: boys 1:00 p.m. (Franklin) 2:30 p.m. (Foxboro) and girls 2:30 p.m. (Franklin) 4:00 p.m. (Foxboro)
