A sampling of the Attack System

Here I've posted a few slides of the base offense of the Attack Basketball System named "4 Man"

Much thanks to Jes-Soft, their playbook software is amazing and I wouldn't have been able to do this project without it.

On to new challenges

Recently I decided that I was going to try and share my high-tempo, high-possession system with other coaches. The reasoning behind this is that I really believe that the adjustments I've made to many of the popular systems in use today can help to convince coaches to PICK UP THE PACE OF THE GAME. I believe that my "system" is advantageous for coaches that have trouble letting go of "control".
The System I use is a combination of some of the popular high tempo systems currently in use. It uses elements of the Dribble Drive Motion, the Read and React, the Open Post, while also incorporating elements of the Grinnell System, the Pfeiffer attack, and the VMI attack.

Watch here for updates on this project.

Shot Clock in Washington State Boys Hoops

On Friday, April 24 the WIAA voted in a 35 second shot clock for Boys' Basketball in the state of Washington, making this state only the 8th state with a shot clock for boys. Even as a coach that likes to push tempo and speed up the pace of the game, I do not like the shot clock. I think it will lead to a lot of negative factors being brought into our great game.
The main argument has been that going to a shot clock "helps get the players ready for college basketball." Well, here's my argument: Only 20% of the high school boys basketball players in the state play at the next level--this is a rough estimate people, and it may be even less! Why, then, are the people in charge voting in this change that will only benefit 20% of the athletic population????
The next thing that I believe--at the 4a, 3a level it might not make much difference. Most of the teams at those levels have fairly even talent levels. There aren't huge disparities in styles of play. My thinking is that at the 1b, 2b, 1a levels there might be some teams that have one or two very serious basketball players, and have the rest filled out with just guys coming out to have a good time. At these lower levels, sometimes it is necessary to manage tempo and keep the more talented team from having possessions. With the shot clock, the teams that are at a serious talent disadvantage are going to suffer some awful blowouts that they might have been able to avoid.

I'm hopeful that the issue is at least revisited after a season or two.
