Learn to master the Flex continuity offense with counters!

The Flex has been popularized over the past few decades. It's easy to run and primarily based on flex screens and down screens. The difficulty is the proper execution of all the screens and the timing of the motion. Bob Schlosser breaks down his variation, which eliminates the down screen, to create easy, open shots.

Coach Schlosser goes into great detail to show exactly how the offense works and how it creates open looks. He adds different variations to the continuity by using a flare action rather than a traditional down screen. These variations allow for dribble penetration and they keep the defense from overplaying in the passing lanes.

He also shows several counters to keep the defense guessing. By using these counters the defense cannot just go through the motions of the continuity or they will give up an easy open look.

With his variation of the Flex, Schlosser also gives you some rules that he uses based on where the ball is passed and counters to every defensive pressure you will encounter.

Breakdown Drills:
The actions of the Flex Offense are broken down into seven drills to help install and reinforce the actions of the offense. These drills emphasize triple threat position, simulate getting into the offense from different spots on the floor, work on backdoor cuts, get players to hit the open man and work on finishing at the rim.

Entries and Out of Bounds Plays:
Using seven different entries into the Flex that have their own variations keeps the defense totally off balance. Also, it allows certain players to get open looks early into the offensive set. By utilizing different counters throughout the entries makes it impossible for your opponent to scout all the possible actions - giving your offense the upper hand. Coach Schlosser also shows how to use sideline and baseline out of bounds situations into a flex set. With all these different actions defenses will have extreme difficulty preventing an open look.

Transition Offense:
Traditionally, the Flex is renowned as a half court offense. Schlosser, however, takes the offense a step further and expands it to the full court. Using stagger screens and screen the screener actions, your shooters will get a variety of looks at the basket early in the shot clock. Schlosser also highlights two set plays off of the break which will allow for both a post-up and a double-stagger for your primary shooter.

If you are a coach who runs the Flex, or one that is looking for a few Flex sets, this DVD will improve upon your offensive game. Order now and open looks are guaranteed.

Basketball Coach TestimonialThis flex offense DVD is tremendous. Schlosser's version is a lot better than the traditional flex with the down screen or the baseline flex I've seen Maryland and Tennessee run. I love the spacing and flaring action! The video was greatly detailed as well. The entries and the break options are great.

I have been running the Flex offense for the past 25 years in various forms. I found Coach Schlosser's guide to have great attention to detail. The elimination of the downscreen forced me to re-think some of my traditional approach. The entries allow coaches to utilize the strengths of their best offensive players. The breakdown drills can be used at all levels to teach the sets.

If you are looking for the Flex Offense this is the video for you. This is a very in-depth look at the Flex that you can take straight to the court and use. The video is not filmed in a clinic setting, which is a plus as it is the coaches own players, so they know what they are doing. There is no filler, you can use it all. This goes well with the Spots Offense DVD.

I thought the video was solid. I loved the entries that Coach Schlosser showed running into the flex. His variation is unique. I'm from his part of PA and for some reason teams struggle defending his version of this offense because of the tweeks he added to it. I don't run flex as my primary offense but this is nice if you want to have something in your back pocket, especially with the quick hitters that run into it.

Nice try; does not get the job done. Sometimes different personalities can bring to life certain teaching points but this guy is just plain vanilla throughout. You quickly lose focus on what he's saying. He does run a variant of the flex which does away with the down pick. Nice if you don't want you big to come out high too often. That said there are very few good videos on the flex offense since fewer and fewer programs are using it. However if you are a true basketball coach you should be at least somewhat familiar with this offense. You may get a job as an assistant down the line where the head coach uses this as his primary offense. Or you may have to defend against it.

This is a great complimentary video to the the Pat Clatchey Spots Offense. If you combine these two DVDs you have an awesome offense with alot of options. This DVD might be slightly better than Coach Clatchey's DVD but it is best if you get both of them. Both DVDs have different entries, different breakdown drills, and different sets/quick hitters. I really like this DVD!
