My first years as head varsity coach of the girl's team is in motion.
These articles supplements all of my current knowledge. I do have a question or two: which would be more effective versus a zone; flex or motion plays? This is a tough question to answer because it all depends on your personnel, player strengths, depth, primary offense, your system, coaching style, etc. I have found it's how what you do, it's how you do it. So one guy running the same plays might do a terrible job, and another guy might run the same plays with great success. But that's just me and there are lots of ways to skin a cat. I really like what I have read. I am about to coach my son's 3rd grade bb team.
What's the AAU Word?
I have been working with him on fundamentals for a year or so before he was able to play for his school this year. But this winter I plan on using the same concept with the team.

Regards Mr Chen Hsin. I teach 5 out motion - pass cut and replace, forget screens until they understand spacing - youth players need to develop inside and outside game. Happy to discuss!! Steve, That is a great rule We ran a 5 out Open Post Offense also Nice job. I think it could even lead to winning , with this rule. I've never thought of it that way before and it doe's make sence I'll put that into play thank you.
Jeff, I really appreciate all the great tips and invaluable advice you provide here on this site.
However, I have to disagree that teaching young players how to fast break, press and play zone defense will ruin their future as basketball players. IMO, the game of basketball is in constant evolution as players develop and mature. The fast break, for instance, when taught properly, teaches the kids to think quickly, and that effective passing is more efficient than dribbling. Those valuable lessons carry over into other game situations, like in a half court offense, where it is effective passing that breaks down the defense.
Also, teaching them real zone defense is actually more difficult than telling them to stay on one player, because they have to be pro-active and anticipate when to switch from defending a zone to covering someone who has just stepped into that zone, especially in the post. Young players' do continue to change as the level play evolves and that, I think is a good thing.
For most kids up through high school, any time they can pass down court in a fast break, they are playing the game with the highest amount of quick thinking and decision making in a sport that thrives on spontenaity and improvization. Steve - I think that in order to play a good zone your kids need to be fundamentally sound in m2m defense. JMO A good m2m defense is not just staying on one player, you are playing good on the ball D This is important in any D that you might play.
And, if you are down several points late in the game, somewhere along the line you are going to have to play m2m defense Whats that old saying I can tell you that as a varsity coach now rettired that I was very happy if the kids came in as freshman and they knew how to play solid m2m defense and could shoot the ball well. We could teach them the rest. Hey Steven, Thanks for the comment. I went back to find the part of the article that I assume you are referencing. You make some excellent points but I do want to clarify one thing.
I want to point out that when done properly, done in the right progression, and when the kids are fully ready it can sometimes can be ok to "TEACH" fast break, full court press, and zone defense. The key word here is "teach". The article didn't use the word teach. Here's the exact quote from the article: "Youth teams can have identities too, but if your "3 things" are pressing, zone defense, and fast break offense - then you are RUINING your players' futures!
A youth coaches TOP priorities should be player development and having fun. The point of the article is for you to focus on a few key things and get really good at those key things. So if you are spending the majority of your youth practice working on full court press, zone defense, and a fast break With that said, I probably could have clarified a little better. You bring in some good points! I do agree and think the fast break has a place in youth basketball like you said, when done properly. It can be an important part of the game and once kids are ready should be included.
Just like when learning math, kids need to learn how to add and subtract and many other concepts before taking calculus. There is a progression to learning which takes years. Each year you learn a little more. As a youth coach you want to try and teach in the right progressions. Kids need to learn how to execute in the half court.

And sometimes it's easy for youth coaches to skip that part because you can win games just by pressing, running fast breaks, and getting points in transition. I have seen a number of teams rely on that too heavily and then really have trouble in high school because that's all they could do. Good article, this may have just saved my season before it started.
I was trying to do too much. Good stuff.
Basketball Coaching ... Game Strategy
The tempation is to overestimate what I can do in one practice and underestimate what I can do in a season!. I couldn't disagree more. Buy choosing three things you are artificially quantifying a sport that defies quantifying. Coaching should be about constant evaluation and changing our coaching strategies on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis.
It should be about lifetime learning and adapting coaching techniques to fit individual situations. I have a list of "Universals" for coaching basketball that are too large to put here.jadimifitde.tk
