Description

with Don Showalter, Iowa City (IA) High School Head Coach; USA Development Coach;co-recipient of the 2013 USA Basketball Developmental Coach of the Year award (this was the fifth-straight year he was named the USA Basketball Developmental Coach of the Year);
2012 United States Olympic Committee's (USOC) Volunteer Coach of the Year award;
led Team USA to the Gold Medal at the 2013 FIBA Americas U16 Championships; 5x Gold Medalist for USA Basketball (2009-2013), Undefeated in Medal Play (2009-2013), 500+ career wins

Don Showalter reveals the offense that propelled the USA Basketball U16 and U17 teams to gold medals in world competition. This offense is simple enough to run at any level of competition yet effective at keeping defenses on their heels. It is simple to install and players enjoy the freedom that it allows.

Coach Showalter uses on court demonstrators to walk you through his "20" continuity offense which starts in a 1-4 high set and utilizes a ball screen on the wing to get players into what he calls the "kill area." He focuses on the details that make this offense work including the permanent pivot foot, how and where to set the ball screen, and the screen and roll versus screen and go.

Emphasis is placed on reading the defense as the ball handler comes off of the screen and Showalter teaches the reads that must be made against teams that:

  • Go behind the screen
  • Hedge on the screen
  • Double the screen
  • Switch the screen
  • Show early on the screen
Showalter also provides a number of variations designed to take advantage of tendencies established by the offense as the game progresses. The Pop Series, 21, Horns, and the Shuffle Cut are all demonstrated on court.

Finally, Showalter demonstrates how the offense can be used against a zone defense. The basic continuity remains the same but the reads change depending on the movement of the zone.

In an added bonus, Showalter takes time to provide some significant insight valuable to coaches at any level. He discusses the importance of communication and the challenges of getting players to play hard all of the time. He details the top 10 mistakes that high school coaches make and the four "C's" (Choices, Comfort Zone, Compete, and Communication) that he emphasizes with his teams.

This DVD provides coaches with all of the tools necessary to implement this highly successful offense at any level.

Produced at the Fall 2011 Omaha (NE) clinic.

69 minutes. 2012.

Simle to run. Showalter is a good teacher. I just wonder how long you can run it before the defense catches on.

I really liked this video! Coach Showalter does a nice job in discussing how he came to run this kind of offense. He is a good teacher and the on-floor instruction is solid. I put this offense in with my 7th and 8th grade boys teams last spring and then used it during the summer in various tournaments. It was easy to implement. The angle of the ball screen makes this offense work...Coach Showalter spends quite a bit of time discussing where to get the wing catch and then how to set the ball screen most effectively. To be honest, the basic "20" offense was a little crowded for us...it might be because of the age of my players; however, we ran the "Switch" option all summer and got open looks any time we ran it. I also like the isolation plays "Pop Down" and "Pop Up". You can really take advantage of a mismatch in the post quickly or get an empty side of the floor to work with. We run a dribble drive offense...this continuity ball-screen offense is a nice addition to our offensive playbook. Our players understand how to turn the corner and attack the basket in the dribble drive which is the perfect skill complement to Coach Showalter's offense. One of the reasons I like 1-4 High sets is because of the distortion to the defense. It's really tough for some of the bigger or slower post defenders to keep up with constant ball screen responsibilities on the perimeter. We get slips off the ball screen as much as we get shots from our guards at the "kill spot" (elbow). Coach Showalter also addresses a few special situations such as how to create spacing and get a post up when ball pressure on the perimeter is really tight. We also used this ball screen offense vs. zones with some success. Again, the distortion of the offense vs. a zone defense is what makes it work. If you're looking for an easy ball screen continuity offense, this will work for any age level.

Coach Showalter does an outstanding job explaining the continuity pick and roll offense. I can honestly say I will install it next year on my varsity girls team. The best thing about it is its simplicity. Showalter breaks down each read on the pick and "go" which should be taught be every coach who has a pick and roll in their offense. This offense is very hard to defend if run properly. Also it is so simple you can still run flex, motion, shuffle...I can you tell I would not want opposing coaches running this offense against my teams. Absolute nightmare to defend! Coach Showalter also breaks down how this offense will be effective against zones.

I thought this was a great video. It is a very simple offense with some nice set plays out of it. Coach Showalter does a great job speaking about the offense. Watching him speak at the Pittsburgh clinic last year is part of the reason why I chose this video.

Nicely done video. Coach Showalter does a nice job of demonstrating the offense. It seems simple and seems to rely on the decision-making of the players, giving them some ownership in it's execution. I also enjoyed his teaching points. Worth the money, thanks.

This is a great dvd with a motion offense that is simple to run and understand. Coach Showalter does well in explaining the offense and some counters within the offense. He also shows how it can be used against man or zone. I would have liked about 5 minutes of live action against a zone. He also gives some great tips on his coaching philosphy. Things that will get you thinking.

Why would the preview clip be nothing that has to do with continuity ball screening offense? Makes me me worry that I am not going to view a continuity offensive video. Instead I'm going to get a clinic lecture with 5 min of continuity offense and a bunch of set plays. has anyone views this video? I've wasted too much money on ineffective videos. thanks

Championship Productions replies:
Coaches, To clarify: The first 15 minutes of this video is philosophy and why Coach Showalter runs the "20 Offense." The rest of the video is a tutorial of how to run the "20 Offense" and a collection of plays to run out off of his offense. Basically the "20 Offense" is a pick and roll motion style that can be run over and over again until a player gets an open look. But Showalter also shows a collection of set plays that can be run out of the 20 if your opponent is taking away an aspect of the offense. Hope that helps! Lonnie Kragel Championship Productions
