Catch basins on a backyard drain

I have standing water in my backyard. It extends for a narrow stretch of about 20 feet at the bottom of a slope in the yard. I'm considering digging a trench, laying a 12x12 catch basin, and diverting the water out of the yard. My question is the following: is there anything wrong with using more than just one catch basin along the length of the trench? Could I put in about three of them to insure that I'm getting more drainage along that long, low spot in the lawn?
