May 3, 2002, Newsletter Issue #56: DEVELOP AN OFFENSIVE PHILOSOPHY

Tip of the Week

Most coaches run a combination of offenses but have one that they predominantly stick with. Find one to make your teams trademark. Have a good understanding of how to play in regard to time and score. A number of websites have diagrams of various offenses such as, 1. Stack, 2. Power, 3. Shuffle, 4. Passing Game, 5. Flex, 6. UCLA High Post 7. Mover/Blocker, 8. Wheel, 9. Mixer, 10. Triangle, etc.

I believe that whatever offense you run, you must have:
1. Bust Outs (ways to get open, create lead, begin offense)
2. Multiple Option Entries
3. Ball Reversal To Layup
4. Special Plays
5. Counters
6. Inside Attack vs. Zone
Really study the options, examine what YOU believe works, get your team to believe in it, teach precision, and demand excellence. Then, you are sure to be a success.
