NUBBA 3rd Grade Boys Overview

Head Coach-Joey Schugel (joey.schugel@gmail.com)

Our NUBBA 3rd Grade Boys Basketball starts on November 2nd. There will be 1 practice session a week, usually on a Saturday morning. The specific practice times are listed on the 3rd Grade team page.  NUBBA understands that this can be an inconvenience, however, don't be discouraged by this, our coaches will work with you if you have prior commitments. 3rd Grade Boys also begin their first year of competitive play by participating in 2 tournaments, one in St. Peter (01/18/20) and New Ulm (02/08/20). 

Look for 3rd Grade Boys practices to be FUN! and focus on fundamentals. Since your player will have tournaments this year, there will be an additional focus on very basic team offense and defense concepts. New concepts like on pick and roll, give and go, and 3-man weave are some of the things that are worked on. With the addition of actual tournament play, defensive skills will be stressed using such concepts as shell drill and defensive shuffling. We will continue to build on skills learned year after year as the get older. Our coaches will continue to add new skills to help your player be successful on the basketball court. 

The 3rd grade boys will perform at halftime of the B squad game on December 20.
