Mike - We ran an Open Post Offense at the high school level... our main rule was DON 'T FIGHT PRESSURE, back door and go all the way to the rim.We ran our set a little higher so we could get more back door looks - to each his own on this.We reversed the ball a few times to break down the defense, then we were looking for cutters ( which we would take off the first pass if he was open) getting open going to the basket... TAKES from the wing if the help D broke down (and from the top if everyone was in a denial position) and 3s when they got lazy and didn't cover us well.You can do a search for Open Post Double Up Offense. do you have to repeat the step over and over again when you basket cut? Great help defense is important for any D, but against the spread.

How long have you been coaching these girls? Coach Roberts, that Bigelow DVD I posted above has a little on teaching offense to a youth team. Thank you.Respectfully,Robert Capen7th Grade CYO Boys CoachBayside, New York, That's a good question, C. There are different things you can do. However, I still highly recommend it because it takes the kids how to play and move without the ball. Your defender might believe you can shoot, allowing you to drive past them for an easier shot. Pick the one you like the most depending on your coaching style and players on your team. If the point passes to a wing and goes to set a screen, and the wing opposite is gone cutting to the basket, then clearing out to the corner, and the corner man is standing in the short corner five feet away, the opposite corner has crashed the boards, and we have a smashup in the lane. A Nike youth program in the town that I live in uses this as the foundation for all of their youth teams. If the cutter decides to curl, the screener will pop out to their original position. Defenses may try to disrupt your offense by stepping up higher and denying the ball. Any ideas on how to get the baseline players more involved and to improve rebounding and transitioning to defense if you stay with this offense? The 5 out cutters offense seems very similar to the Read and React System by Rick Torbett. As with regular pick and rolls, the screener has the option of rolling hard to the rim or filling the space on the perimeter. This was aimed at teaching them to move without the ball and screen for each other, curl and basket cut.When I put five together on the court and try to get them moving, they all move. So cutting and movement definitely repeats. I'd pay $100 for it. I ran this for 3 years with a few more wrinkles. Hi,Love all your info. 3 can either front cut or back cut towards the rim depending on how quickly the defense reacts to the screen. I had to implement a 5-pass rule to slow down our scoring, but that made us look even better. We implemented the 3-2 zone to keep things simplified. Let your team know that when they’re not cutting, they must be in one of these 5 positions. Some coaches teach that every fill must be a “V cut”, in other words, players must fake a back cut by cutting half way to the basket, then cut out to the perimeter. From feedback, this seems to be the age that they start to really turn things on from years of doing things the right away. Maximizing the scoring opportunities for your two best players. • Players will work out that the best players to set on-ball screens for are the quick guards who make great decisions. The on-ball screen can be used after any pass in the offense.
