Equipments of 3×3-Basketball

Ball

Professional leagues such as the NBA have very precise parameters for the official basketball they use. This includes color, material, size, air pressure, and bounce. The main thing to know about basketball is the size. There are different sizes for different ages as well as for boys and for girls.

Basket

The basket is made up of the backboard, rim, and net. The rim is 18 inches in diameter. A regulation backboard is 72 inches wide by 48 inches tall, although you will find backboards can vary in size. The rim should be 10 feet from the ground. Typically a 10 foot rim is used from ages 6th grade and older. For younger kids you can lower the goal so that they can take a proper shot at the goal. For kindergarten through second grade children you can try a 6-foot goal. Then move it up to 8 feet for 3rd and 4th grade. Try nine feet for 5th grade. Of course, this depends on the size, strength, and skill of the player.

Uniform

The basketball uniform generally consists of a tank top and shorts. You also need socks and some good basketball type sneakers. Basketball sneakers are good for all the starting and stopping required in the game. You can choose high tops, low tops, or three quarter height shoes. If you play under the basket a lot you may want high tops to help protect you from getting a twisted ankle.
