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 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.

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.
