WHY 3X3?

With the unbelievable growth in popularity of 3x3 basketball globally, what used to be a simple half-court pickup game is now an officially sanctioned event.

This summer the winner of the 2017 USA Basketball Men's 3x3 National Tournament will represent the U.S. in the FIBA 3x3 World Cup.

To get there, the first step is playing in a local tournament, where winners can advance to the USA Basketball 3x3 National Tournament. If there’s not a local 3x3 tournament in your area, you can go ahead and create one.

EVENT HISTORY:

This year will mark the sixth annual USA 3x3 National Tournament, which was first held in 2012.  Last year’s champions in the men’s tournament made history at the FIBA 3x3 Worlds after capturing silver – marking the USA’s first medal of any kind at the men’s tournament – while the women’s team claimed the bronze medal.
