In 360 Hoops, three teams compete at a time on the 30-foot diameter circular court, which features a single stanchion with three regulation baskets facing away in each direction. Players can score for their teams in any of the three baskets, and the three-team format allows for brackets to efficiently reduce while ensuring all teams get adequate court time. Moving without the ball is a key skill, ensuring a great workout while competing.
"The 360 Hoops program lets more kids have more fun with basketball at a younger age," said Shane Brey, Co-Founder, 360 Hoops. "The 360 Hoops Invitational will help us spread the word of how this amazing new version of basketball provides a great, fun workout for players, entertaining action for fans and an amazing opportunity for schools, parks and recreational organizations, resorts and other athletic facilities to enhance their offerings in an engaging new way."
