HALF-COURT OFFENSE: PHILOSOPHY, COMPONENTS, DEVELOPMENT

Several years ago I ran a series of three blog posts on the philosophy, components. and development and thought it would be a good time to share all three as we starting installing our offensive schemes with our teams. We spoke of philosophy, development and strategy.  We got a lot of great feedback at that time so I thought we'd list all three parts below.

In the first part of our series we talked about why it is important to execute in your half-court offense. For teams to be consistently efficient offensively, they must be taught and coached to execute their half-court offense.  We could certainly debate the advantages and disadvantages of the various half-court offensive approaches from motion to continuity to quicker hitters and beyond but we will skip that instead just to stress the need to be good in the half-court.

THOUGHTS ON HALF-COURT OFFENSE (PART II)

In the third part of our series we asked what are some of the things that promote the best teaching of half-court offense. Though years of coaching and, more importantly, watching some of the best teach in their programs, I have noticed a few common denominators and share them in the link below:
