Why 3 on 3?
As a player development organization, we’re big fans of 3 on 3 basketball. We think it’s awesome for skill development at all age levels because…
- You get MORE touches on the ball. Six passes is an average possession in 3on3, meaning each player will have the ball at least TWICE every possession.
- You have more space to try new moves and practice new skills.
- Your defensive footwork and agility get challenged because you have to cover more distance with fewer players on the court.
- You IMPROVE passing, dribbling, shooting, cutting, spacing, rebounding and defense.
- All players have an equal opportunity to make plays and help their team win.
Does your son or daughter dream of playing high school basketball?
Grouped by grade and coached by our experienced staff, athletes take on basketball skill challenges, game situation drills, and confidence boosting training, tailored to their age. They learn life skills such as teamwork, problem solving and leadership. We encourage kids to step outside their comfort zone, push themselves beyond their current abilities and stretch their imagination to develop a growth mindset.
If you don’t see availability in your grade below, please consider joining our 3v3 league.

Does your daughter want to score more at her next basketball game?
Improve her offensive firepower by registering her for the Level Up morning training program at Joaquin Moraga.
Coaches will take her through an intense and advanced shooting program with a focus on the correct shooting mechanics to help her shoot consistently and boost her confidence. The program will provide her with the instruction and repetitions needed to perfect her shot – mid-range, layups, 3-pointers, and off the dribble.
She’ll learn the 5 biggest mistakes most players make that keep them from shooting consistently. In fact, avoiding just one of these mistakes could help her improve her shooting percentage.
Players will be paired up with other athletes of similar ability. All drills are progressive. We’ll track her progress and she’ll have milestones to hit each week in order to advance.
When: Wednesdays & Thursdays, Oct 2 – February 27 (while schools in session, 35 training sessions)
Time: 7 AM – 8 AM Location: Joaquin Moraga
All girls at JM are welcome, no matter her ability. Please share with friends.
Coach Flitter emphasized academics and life off the court. In fact, he rewarded being a good citizen as much as he rewarded being a strong basketball player.
We chose Coach Flitter because of his positive-mentor coaching philosophy which is the centerpiece of all that he does.
Coach Flitter focuses on some of the most critical yet often overlooked aspects of youth basketball – integrity, fair play, sportsmanship and positive attitude.
I truly believe your program is a vital source to combine basketball, community and kindness. You make a difference to many young men.
Coach Flitter talked about what each player did that helped the team and/or how the player had developed or used a particular skill in that game or practice and he encouraged the teammates to do the same.
