From what age group is the 3-point line used?

At what level do you start using the outside 3-point line?

It's been used in u12's, the old measurement though. Yes I have seen u12's hit them.

Sounds like a sure way to ingrain some poor shooting technique from a young age

Kids are always going to practice 3s before any other shot especially with the Curry phenomenon. It's up to the coach to reign them in and not allow them to take them in a game until they are ready. A lot of under 16s can't shoot them with great technique whilst some under 12s can, depends on the individual. A lot of under 16s can't even do left handed layups because their coaching has been more about wins than development. That's why in my opinion there's late bloomers who have the fundamentals down and when they physically catch up, their game surpasses kids that have gotten away with being physically gifted when they were younger.
