In the NBA, the three-point line is composed of two lines, parallel to and 3 feet (0.91 m) from the sideline, and a circular arc (centered on the basket) of roughly 120 degrees, which intersects the parallel lines 14 feet from the baseline.  The distance of the arc is 23 feet, 9 inches (7.23 m) from the basket. The distance from the line to the basket varies near the sidelines, and is exactly 22 feet (6.71 m) from the basket at its closest point which is 5 feet, 3 inches (1.6 m) from the base line, along an imaginary line parallel to the base line and through the center of the basket

There is not a standard distance for the 3 point line because the court size is not mandated, Many times, they play on half of a regulation sized court, so in these cases, the 3 point line would be approximately half the distance as in regulation basketball.
You said it in the question... 3 points!
The three point line distance in women's college basketball is 19 feet 9 inches. Men's basketball three point line distance is also 19 feet 9 inches. however, that will change to a distance of 20 feet 9 inches beginning in the 2008-2009.

In basketball, there is no "puck". You play with a basketball. In basketball, you can either get 1, 2, or 3 points. When you are shooting a free-throw and make it, you get 1 point. When you are inside the 3 point line and you shoot the ball and make it, you get 2 points. And finally, when you are outside the 3 point line you get 3 points.
shoot beyond the three point line
