What is HOOP JUNKIES?
Hoop Junkies is designed for the traditionalist. 3v3 basketball is a great teaching tool for basic 5-on-5 movements and skills. At often in a 5-on-5, the main offensive operation is performed by only 3 players. The additional space given in this game allows young players to do more, and perhaps more importantly, try out things that will aid in improving their 5-on-5 gameplay. All in all, having more space not only provides the opportunity to experiment with the different techniques but also makes the game a lot more exciting!
