In its initiative to make 3-on-3 basketball more accessible to the country’s youth, Under Armour organized a series of basketball clinics to equip next-generation players with basic to advanced” 3-on-3 basketball skills.
What sets Under Armour’s program apart from many others is its focus on the rules, gameplay, and skills needed to successfully play 3-on-3 basketball. To ensure quality learning, over 30 coaches have been trained in the program’s 3-on-3 style of play and skill development. They later reached out to various schools and communities to share their knowledge with enthusiasts aged 17 and below.
Under Armour is not only known for its innovations in sportswear but also for its unwavering faith in athletes like Stephen Curry and even homegrown talents. This makes the program the best arena for young basketball enthusiasts to fully learn the essentials of the sport and the true makings of a world-class athlete.
