Its been a busy basketball season for me. I haven't been able to get as much stuff up here on this page as I'd like, but I want to welcome you to take a look around and see if there's anything you like. There are plenty of free sets and lots of good free information here. I'm also trying to supplement my income (I am an unpaid assistant coach after all!) by selling my two playbooks: Attack Basketball and 4 Out Playbook. I'd be happy to send you a sample from either of these; all you have to do is drop me an email and I will be sure to send you some stuff.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to get more content back up on the pages of this site.
Ok, so I disappeared for awhile. I moved, took a new job, and generally turned my life upside down. More on that in a minute. For now, I'm going to continue to put up a Play of the Day and try to give you, the Coach, a wrinkle or two you can add to your system. Also, don't forget that I have two products for sale: the Attack Basketball System and the Explosive 4 Out Playbook.
Now, on to the good stuff. I've taken a position as an assistant Women's Basketball coach at Green River Community College in Auburn, WA. I'm also in charge of recruiting, so if you know any females that might want to play CC ball, drop me a line.
In fact, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me.... firstname.lastname@example.org
As you can see, I'm trying to do a lot with this blog, and make it a destination for basketball coaches of all ages. Last weekend I was fortunate enough to get to the Northwest Basketball Coaches Clinic in Lake Stevens, WA. I was able to get some great notes and I even managed to take some video as well. I will be posting video later today and the notes will come shortly after.
Also, don't forget to check out the Attack System Booklet, as well as my 4 out 1 in Offense notes. Both are for sale here, and if you contact me I'd be more than happy to hook you up with a sample of either.
Some of you have been brave enough to purchase the mammoth Attack Basketball System book. Now I am branching out a little bit more and putting my 4 Out 1 In Offense Playbook on the market. This item is going to be for sale for $7 and will be downloadable online. This playbook will have 6 Man to Man Continuity Offenses, over 40 Man to Man Sets, and Zone Offense Continuities and Sets. These are handwritten notes that I have put a lot of effort into.
Today's Play of the Day is designed to get a quick backdoor bucket. From a 4 out set, 1 passes to the wing and cuts off a UCLA cut. As this is happening, 3 is flashing to the top of the key and 4 is diving to the rim. This play takes a bit of practice to get the timing down, but when you do, it usually good for a quick two!
Today's Play of the Day comes out of a Box set. It is designed to get an initial post up for your 4 man, then there are options for the 2 man coming off 5's screen, and then finally a triple staggered screen for your 1 man. Lots of options on this one.
Here's today's Play of the Day. Again it involves a high ballscreen. This set is called Prairie. The timing is the key in this set; 2 should be coming off the baseline flex screen as 3 is making the catch.
Here is the first of what I hope to be a long series of Plays of the Day for basketball coaches. This comes out of a 4 out 1 in set, and its called Chin. This is a simple set looking to take advantage of a quick backscreen and then a high ballscreen.
