Hello. We are just finishing up our third grade season and I am starting to take notes as to what we will need to work on for next season.
We did not run offensive plays this season, but I will implementing some for their 4th grade season.
I recently purchased your Motion Offense DVD's as well as your Attack & Counter DVD's by Don Kelbick. Awesome stuff!
My question is:
If you have only two practices a week (when basketball season arrives ) to install a motion offense and also try to work on skills and technique taught in your Attack & Counter DVD's, how would you go about doing so?
Our practices are only one hour to one hour and 15 minutes long.
I don't want to screw up and focus on one thing more than another. That's why I figured I would contact you since I will be using your DVD's as a reference point.
I appreciate your time and look forward to your response.

I wouldn't hold out much hope for 4th graders to hold onto an offense. Motion offense is the right thing to do for them.
Since a motion offense is based in skills, your skill work is very important and shouldn't be sacrificed. I think that at least 75% of your practice should be skills.
However, in your skill work, you can work motion concepts into your work. Working on shooting, then shooting off screens is a natural progression. It is a simple step to go from 1 player drills, to 2 player drills, 3 player drills and then to live 3 player drills.
I spend a lot of time playing 3 on 3 and eventually 4 on 4 to install the motion. Doing that, it is also easy to go backwards and take the movements you want in those situations and create skill drills from them.
Does that help?
