Basic 3 on 3 with several twists. Winners stay, losers rotate out.
Offense can get a point only by scoring. Defense can get a point by
all three players boxing out and obtaining rebound. However, we don't rotate a new team in on a defensive point.
Additionally, we will sit a team that fails to call a screen, fails to box out, fails to talk on defense generally, argues a call, etc. An offensive team will rotate out if players away from the ball fail to screen away or screen and roll. If you don't have the ball you must either screen on the ball screen away or post up.
3 on 3. Play to 5, 10, or 15 points.
First team to score a basket stays as winners. Losers rotate out.
Offense gets a point for a basket.
Defense gets a point if all three players box out and defense gets rebound.
Defense gets 4 points for a five-second call after loss of dribble with good denial everywhere.
If offensive players fail to screen and roll or screen away they sit.
Defense sits if fail to talk on defense, box out etc.
9 to 12
It's better than 2 on 2, because you can screen away and more communication is involved. It's better than 4 on 4 because coaches can watch every player, and every player is involved.
