Types of Motion Offenses

Though every coach tries to put his mark on the motion offense they run, there really are only 4 basic types. These types are categorized by the number of players that are on the perimeter and the number of players that are in the post.

5 Out Motion Offense

4 Out 1 In Motion Offense

3 Out 2 In Motion Offense

2 Out 3 In Motion Offense

All motion offenses fit into those categories above. The thing that differentiates one motion from another is the rules and philosophy that each coach installs. Here are some specific motion offenses that employ certain rules and philosophies:
