    50-Shot Workout

    These workouts accomplish three goals. First, they cover a wide variety of shots over 3 ranges: outside the arc, the mid-range, and finishes on the goal. Second, the workouts help each player to associate certain shots with certain actions of the defender. For example, if the defender closes out short, then the player should shoot and not drive. These workouts also prepare the shooter to be more comfortable when he has to ignore the presence of the defender and focus on making the shot.

    Randi Henderson: Emmert Series

    Randi Henderson: Emmert Series

    Read and React coaches are always looking for new and unique ways to train the Read and React Offense in practice.

    Coach Randi Henderson has adopted a concept she calls “Emmert Reads” from a coaching clinic she attended. In this 29 minute course, she introduces drills you can use to train post entries, the read-line, relocation, and x-cuts.

    These actions are designed to imitate live game situations and stimulate your imagination for training any Read and React action initiated by post entry or dribble penetration.

    Read and React: 2-Player Workout

    Read and React: 2-Player Workout

    There are two halves of the Read & React that make it the unique system that it is. The first half of the Read & React takes all decision-making away from players without the ball and makes them pure reactors to the ball-handler – one predetermined reaction to every action that the ball can take. That makes the ball-handler the sole decision-maker: one leader with 4 followers. And that’s what this workout is all about. 

    Making decisions with the ball AND knowing exactly how to react to the ball, essentially means you know exactly when to lead and exactly when to follow. And that knowledge is not only essential to the Read & React, it’s also an essential ingredient to playing Better Basketball.

    Randi Henderson: 1-on-1 Drills

    Randi Henderson likes to mix it up!
    She has learned that practice gets repetitive when the same drills are rehearsed every single day until they become so repetitive that the teams she coaches have less fun with it. The trick is to do different kinds of drills that still work on the same fundamentals – that way the same work gets done, but the practice stays fun.

    This course was filmed with Randi and her team practicing with one-on-one drills that keep it interesting and encourage the players to work their hardest.

    Read & React Tutorials: Opportunity Drives

    The Read & React is the ultimate 2-for-1 offense. Any time one of your players is working on a direct scoring opportunity, your offense will create indirect scoring opportunities. The trick is to make sure your players are looking for it.

    This video course explores driving opportunities that are inherent in the offense thanks to its spacing, player movement and ball movement. These are situations you can set up in practice and turn into drills so that your players learn what to look for when it’s game time and you need to put points on the board.

    Read & React Tutorials: Post Player Quarterback

    Read & React Tutorials: Post Player Quarterback

    The post player is an important part of the offense. Two things that usually come up with respect to the post are simply how to get open in the post and how to score in the post when you’ve got the ball. Read & React uses the post player in a different way – it turns the post player into a play maker, the quarterback of your offense. The post is in the Read & React decision box, and the purpose of this online course is to help the post learn how to make the best decision for the team.

    Being able to choose the Next Best Action without the ball has mostly been left to chance. Most of us coaches can recognize a player with a high basketball I.Q. and we’re glad to get them. But how much time do we actually spend, with an organized plan, training everyone on the team to choose a Next Best Action? How much time do we really spend trying to increase our players’ basketball I.Q.? In Read & React Offense, the lane is the decision box. This video course will help you teach your players to make the best decisions without input from the coach.

    Better Shooting
