Wonder why we are offering a 3 on 3 League for the next four weeks?
3 on 3 affords players a few advantages to 5 on 5, and what better way to begin our school seasons than to compete and learn in this setting. More time with the ball in your hands, better spacing on the floor to create and to challenge the defense, great conditioning (very little stoppage in our rules), more of a position-less game for player development, and player led teams which promotes leadership and problem solving. Players can benefit immensely from these live, small-sided games.
I am very excited to see players explore this game (a game that was added to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo!) and grow as players. Developing your game has to include a combination of committed skill work, competition and learning how to compete hard, and creative free play. This league will compliment everything we offer through Peak and I recommend it to all.
Still wonder why we would offer competitive league play? Commit to getting better! Join us!
It’s easy to dwell on the past. It’s even easier to worry about the future. Although learning from our past and planning for tomorrow are both important, be sure to stay present in the moment!
There are so many distractions in our daily experience and we must remember that the most important thing is the one right in front of us. Listen fully in that conversation you are having. Focus on the task at hand and get everything you are supposed to get out of it. We are never going to be perfect at this, but we must be mindful to practice it. Be where your feet are. Be present. Make the most of each moment you are given. You’re there for a reason…
