Complete Package for Man & Zone Offense
on March 28, 2013
5-Star rating right here!!
The DVD starts off with the "Decision" reads for point guards driving to the rim. PG can hit either the wing or the post depending on what the defense is doing. Coach Boyle's instruction in this, an all of these drills, are what make this DVD so 5-Star rating. He is constantly instructing the players.
Phase II of the DVD looks at using screens(Offense side). Perfet instruction for us high school coaches. Heck this section is great for all coaches. Coach Boyle shows how to use screens and what you can do if a defense tries to double, switch, or hedge. Cool little trick to add to a coache tool belt.
Another Phase of the DVD looks at position players, in this DVD coach works on guards/wings and post players. With the guards, coach shows you how to drill the dribble and kick option, hand-off option,the dribble and lift option which is the beginning of the motion offense phase.
After the guards get their work in, the post players are up. Nothing fancy with post work (Dang it!) I did like the "Duck-In" drills. A lot of players, depending on the region where you play, do not know how to "Duck-In" so having this on DVD helps me with summer camps as well as for my team next winter. I like the post work because coach stresses the art of post entry passing. Great stuff.
After post work, coach begins to show us how he goes into his offense. We get a look at his progression break drills, 3v0, 4v0, and 5v0. When he is at the 5v0 set we get a look at secondary break options. Again great stuff for coaches, especially me who is looking for solid secondary break options. Coach gives something like 5 options for a secondary break.
Moving from the progression phase, we are now looking at set plays. The set plays are simple and effective, "Power" was most effective for my young JV team this year. Easy to teach and coach makes sure that you are running the plays from both sides of the floor. Plus he makes sure that you are getting touches for the post, "Power" as well as looks for the perimeter players on your team through other offensive sets. These are Man-to-Man offense sets. Although you might get lucky to run these against a zone offense as well. Depending on how well those teams are coached.
The Zone Offense phase looks at attacking 2-3, 1-3-1, and 2-1-2 type zones. Coach covers attacking the gaps in a zone and how to read the defender. Excellent tips on attacking a zone.
This is an excellent DVD to add to your collection. You get FB tips, player position drills and tips, how to handle Man to Man defenses as well as Zone defenses.
