Full Court Legends Basketball (A JrNBA Program)

Program Description

Full Court Legends youth basketball is a program that is designed to replicate high school basketball with appropriately sized balls and goals in a 5on5 format. Young players should always use the right sized sports equipment to reinforce good mechanics and fundamentals when learning the proper way to play. And that means learning and following the rules of the game too.

Like all ONE Sports programs, player development and keeping kids excited about sports is the goal, Full Court Legends Basketball provides that focus in a competitive fun environment. Serving Co-Ed youth ages 5-15. Four year olds are eligible through our Play-Up policy, but must be physically, mentally and emotionally ready to play on a 6U team.

Season Info

Full Court Legends offers multiple seasons of league play for those that enjoy basketball and want to improve their skills throughout the year. Season details can be viewed by clicking the “Register Now” button on the league page.

Other Program variations are available on a customer demand basis. Contact your league commissioner to express interest or inquire about upcoming opportunities.

Program Variations

In addition to season league play, additional Full Court Legends Basketball Programming may be available in the following formats, ask your league commissioner for details:

3on3 League Play

3on3 league play has become a popular alternative in some parts of the country, especially for older players that are looking for a fast paced experience.

For the older age groups, Full Court Legends has designed a 3on3 program in a fast paced half court game.

Tournament Play

(Part of the OSN Tournament Series)

Winning is the goal for the OSN Tournament Series. Coaches, players and parents should carefully consider their athlete’s physical, mental and emotional preparedness for entering a highly competitive contest. Although the OSN Tournament Series offers a highly competitive atmosphere, Code of Conduct is still in effect during the tournament and is expected to be exemplified by coaches AND parents. Teams will participate with Full Court Legends rules in a tournament format established by the commissioner (single elimination, double elimination or other).

What’s Included

Program Value

Your player gets a pro-branded game day jersey that they keep, all scheduled games, weekly indoor practices, and a trophy or medal at the end of the season. That’s an incredible entertainment value! In addition, you’ll get the family fun atmosphere of our game day as you watch your player have a great youth sports experience. Take some photos, and share them on social media. Compare the cost of league registration with a family trip to the movie theater for one night and you’ll quickly see that participation in our youth sports programs really stretches your entertainment value for your family, and gives your child all the benefits that youth sports participation offers.

Games

A full season of Full Court Legends league play includes eight scheduled games consisting of 7 regular season games and your first round playoff game in the end of season tournament. All teams are invited to participate in the end of season tournament regardless of regular season performance. Our program is designed to promote player development through the regular season games so that each team has developed to their season potential for the end of season tournament.

Everyone plays in Full Court Legends league play, and our coaches are encouraged to provide fair playing time for every player that attends practice, gives their best effort and is focused during the games and practice regardless of the player’s talent or ability.

Competitive play with a focus on winning is reserved for OSN Tournament Series programs only.

Practices

Practice frequency, days, time and location are determined by the league and the practice rental facility. For additional Information, please visit our FAQs.

Player’s Pro Branded Uniforms

Like all of the ONE Sports Nation Programs, Full Court Legends basketball utilizes pro branded player uniforms as a member of the Jr. NBA. Matching game shorts are also available for purchase through our league website, or contact your commissioner for info. Our players will wear the jerseys of the pros on game day because when you look good, you play good. Parents are often found wearing their pro jerseys too as they support their child’s youth sport team.

Game Schedule Info

All regular season game schedules for the entire season are created by the commissioner and shared with participant families approximately one week prior to Season launch via our online Schedules and Standings page. This will allow each family to make plans outside of sports during the season. Tournament games are determined by season standings, so those game times can only be shared following the end of the regular season once the teams are seeded for the tournament.

Game Locations and Season Details can be viewed by clicking the “Register Now” button on the league page.

Coaching

Our Coaches are background checked and we require all first time Full Court Legends coaches to complete our league coach certification that emphasizes our youth sports focus and philosophy, reviews safety curriculum, provides practice and game day organization, rules review and coach resources.

In addition, Full Court Legends provides each certified head coach with an equipment bag for their use during the season that includes the basics needed to coach our teams.

Full Court Legends is powered by volunteer coaches and we encourage your participation with your child.

There are many benefits to coaching. You’ll be choosing the team name for the JrNBA player uniforms, you’ll get a practice bag of equipment and the joy of coaching young players, including your own.

Age Divisions

For ages 5-15. Age divisions: 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U & 15U. Players can always Play Up an age division but never down. There are no exceptions. Our Age cut-off is seasonal, not annual like other companies. This seasonal cut-off approach ensures that players progress to the next age division preserving the youth sports experience for the age eligible players in each age division. Annual age cut-offs only serve to allow older players to dominate an age division.

Trying to keep your team together but some players have aged out? No Problem, just have the whole team play up to the next age division.

Player Development Model

The Full Court Legends basketball program rules have been developed to mimic high school basketball as closely as possible with due consideration for age appropriate skills, court dimensions and sports equipment size. We believe in teaching kids the right way to play sports so that kids don’t have to relearn game rules at a later time. Everything about our rules and program structure is intentional, with many years of experience and game day testing to ensure the right approach to developing the players.

Our Coach Certification provides age appropriate guidance for skill development with suggested practice routines and available coach resources.
