Post subject:  Teaching Primary/Secondary Break

Working with PG's to recognize diff between prim/sec and then reactions of other 4 players.

With secondary, 5 runs the rim, 2/3 run block/foulline extended, 4 always inbounds the ball. - they always start down the court this way... in an ideal scenario.

Working with the PG's to recognize this...
Prim - 1 defender back, PG pushes more toward the side of the lane with 5 going above block opposite ball - so more lane wide.
Prim - 2 defenders back, PG moves the ball to the middle of the floor but do 2/3 then fill the wings? Where does the 5 go after he runs the rim? Any thoughts?

Greater than 2 right into secondary no problem

BUT teaching where 5 goes with 2 defenders back, curious how other people do it. Do you teach him to slow up and let the 1,2,3 attack?

Just saw this in another part of the forum -
*Ahead of the ball, run wide; if you are behind the ball, run down the middle.
Perfect especially since I have a lot of interchangeable players.

We just push the ball into a 4 out 1 in formation (rim runner, wings or corners, and guards lanes). That usually flattens out the defense if everyone runs the court hard. Push to get a "good shot". If you don't have a good shot we immediately flow into our half court offense. That's all there is to it. Really simple.

What the 5 and other players do just depends on our offense. We run only motion so it's pretty simple. If you run set continuity then you figure out a way to flow into that quickly not giving the defense time to get set.

For younger kids we want lay ups, post ups, or close shots in fast break (anything 12 feet or in). That would be a good shot for young kids. If they don't have a good shot the motion starts.

With older kids, a wide open 3pt shot for a good shooter could be consider a "good shot".

Also, this is a good resource for fast break and transition. We use the same concepts taught here because it's simple and makes sense.
