The Hybrid Attack Offense
Combining the Best Elements of Motion Offense & Dribble Drive
In this 3-part video set, you learn about Ryan Schultz's innovative and one-of-a-kind Hybrid Attack Offense.
This is a highly effective half-court offensive system that fuses the best elements of motion offense and dribble drive offense.
Prior to implementing the Hybrid Attack Offense, the Cedar Falls program had 3 state semi-final appearances and 0 state championships in the last 100+ years...
Ever since switching to this Hybrid Attack Offense, Ryan Schultz's Cedar Falls teams have won 2 state championships and made 6 state appearances in just 7 years!
Those are remarkable results that we'd all enjoy.He's also led the state in...
- Offensive Rating
- Points Per Game
- Effective Field Goal %
- Field Goal %
- 3 Point %
- Assists Per Game
Below, you can learn more about the Hybrid Attack Offense...
We hope that this helps you transform your team into an offensive juggernaut as well!
The Benefits of the Hybrid Attack Offense
Here are a few benefits of the one-of-kind Hybrid Attack Offense...
1) Score More Points By Getting More of the Best Shots in Basketball!
According to analytics, lay ups, open 3-point shots, and free throws are the best shots you can take!
And Ryan Schultz's Hybrid Attack Offense produces a ton of these potent shots.
He shows you how to:
- Create a framework and a mentality to get to the basket
- Put pressure on the rim and draw fouls
- Pass out to your open 3-point shooters
If you'd like to capitalize on the best shots in basketball... more layups, free throws, and 3-pointers, the Hybrid Attack Offense will help.
Schultz shows you the exact offense rules, principles, and points of emphasis that produce unselfish, high-scoring teams.
2) Players Share the Ball - Creates "Beautiful Basketball"
Coach Schultz's teams have led the state in assists per game.
The rules, communication, teaching points, and cues taught (based on the defense's positioning) within this offensive system...
Encourages players to pass the ball and get the best shot for the team... creating what many experts call "Beautiful Basketball."
And you do so without losing that aggressive, attacking mentality that leads to easy baskets at the rim.
Coach Schultz's expertise shows as he demonstrates how to teach this delicate balance.
3) Unpredictable and Hard to Scout - Based on Counters and Reads
While there are set plays and actions provided with this offensive system, players are taught how to counter the defense and make great reads.
There is not a pre-set pattern or decisions. Players are taught to attack and take advantage of the defense's positioning.
The opponent simply cannot prepare for all of the random actions that may occur.
You constantly put the defense at a disadvantage by forcing them into...
- Long closeouts (they'll find themselves trailing often)
- Defending in space
- Making tough decisions and defending multiple screening actions
Additionally, Schultz shows you how to...
4) Arm Yourself With Offensive Counters - Combat Different Defensive Looks
Ryan Schultz plays in the large school division in Iowa. As a result, he constantly competes against future hall of fame coaches, future college athletes, and even future pros.
As a result, he sees a variety of different defensive looks. This led to innovation of the Hybrid Attack Offense.
As a result, you're armed with offensive counters and plays, so you can score against whatever the competition throws at you... including switching defenses.
5) Easily Adaptable - Works With Different Personnel & Utilizes Strengths
Coach Schultz won 2 state championship titles back to back with two entirely different teams:
2018 - He had a very talented point guard and good shooters.
2019 - He had a weaker shooting team.
That's because this offense lets you change year to year based on your strengths - without getting stuck into one distinct style of play...
Some years you may utilize the dribble drive actions (attack) a little more.
Some years you may trend toward more cutting and screening actions (motion).
In years where you have a post presence, you can allow and create more flash post ups and weak side seals - in addition to getting them into a variety of pick and roll situations within the framework of the Hybrid Attack.
6) You Develop Better Players Due To This Compounding Effect!
Quite simply, you spend more practice time on skills and habits that produce better players.
Over the course of a season or multiple seasons, this creates a compounding effect that can lead to dramatic improvement.
Most of your practice time is spent on...
- Attacking in straight-line dribble drives
- Learning how to score at the basket against a variety of defenders
- Locating and passing to the open player
- Shooting open perimeter or 3-point shots
- Cutting and screening, so you learn how to create scoring opportunities without the ball
7) Accelerates Decision-Making Ability - Develops High IQ Players Not Robots!
This hybrid system allows you to teach kids to be high IQ basketball players, not robots.
Similar to developing skills, you accelerate your player's ability to make better decisions because there are countless repetitions in practice. You get a little bit better every single practice which leads to big gains over a season and career.
When you couple that with the teaching points that Ryan Schultz provides, you develop players who make great decisions.
8) Dynasty Builder! Middle School & Youth Coaches Can Use This System
When you start to implement this throughout your program and even down to the youth and middle school levels... like Ryan Schultz has done, you can get tremendous results.
You can easily simplify it for youth teams and progress to more advanced concepts each season.
When you start to build the continuity and add in a system that teaches players the best skills and the right way to play... you can build dynasties!
And if you're a high school coach, players who come into your program are ready to quickly progress to advanced concepts since they already have a great foundation.
9) Hidden Benefit = Improves Your Team's Defense
Coach Schultz discovered a hidden benefit after running the Hybrid Attack for a few years...
Their defense improved because EVERY DAY in practice they had to learn how to defend and deal with a variety of offensive elements used in the Hybrid Attack...
- Dribble drive attack situations
- Ball screens
- Off the ball screens
- Post ups
- Various cuts and motion offense elements
- High quality counters
This challenged them and allowed them to make big improvements on the defensive end as well...
In 2021, Ryan Schultz's Cedar Falls team combined for the best offensive/defensive rating in the state. (1st in offense, 5th in defense)
Quite simply, your defense will get better when it's constantly competing against one the best offenses in the area.
10) It's Fun and Increases Depth/Participation From Having More Athletes!
Kids these days don't want to be robots. They like to make decisions and have some freedom on the court.
This is a fun offense to run for players!
As a result, many athletes from other sports choose to play basketball. This is why Ryan Schultz's teams constantly have big, strong athletes from other sports like football.
When you combine fun with accelerated player development, you get more participation throughout the program.
And this creates a great cycle of producing more depth and more skilled players which leads to more wins.
The Best of Two Tried and True Offensive Systems
Below, Coach Chad C. from Keokuk explains how the Hybrid Attack Offense combines the best elements of two tried and true offensive systems.
He also does a great job of summing up the benefits below.
"Teams I coached struggled to be aggressive when running just a motion offense. This is a very attack oriented offense that almost forces teams to get down hill and attack the basket aggressively. Ryan Schultz takes the best elements of dribble drive and motion offenses and combines them in a simple, easy to understand way.
Very excited to implement this offense. Appreciate the in depth look and strategies at attacking a switching defense as well.
On a side note, I've been to dozens of coaching clinics over the years. I'd much rather spend my money on in-depth instruction by a great teacher than the broad overview of a topic you get at a clinic."
What's Unique About the Hybrid Attack Offense?
Ryan Schultz's Hybrid Attack Offense is a system that Schultz himself created to solve his problems of being stagnate during motion and lacking screening and cutting during dribble drive.
It is a fusion of motion and dribble drive that...
- Gives players clear triggers to follow as to whether they are in Attacking mode (dribble drive option) or in Non Attacking mode (motion option).
- Allows you to switch back and forth from motion to dribble drive in the SAME possession - you don't need to reset.
- Players can learn relatively quickly. Some of Schultz's guys in the videos were new to the Hybrid Attack - as you can see from the clips, it came fast to those kids who hadn't had much experience with it.
- Includes strategies for beating switching defenses - which Schultz calls "Attack the Switch."
One-of-a-Kind System - "Offense Is Unique"
Coach Dale S. from Monticello tells why the Hybrid Attack is unique and a one-of-a-kind offensive system...
Coach Schultz is a great teacher on video! Love the fact that the offense is unique from what most coaches are doing offensively today. Very progressive offense based on sound fundamentals.
Coach Schultz breaks things down in very simple, easy to understand details which I appreciate. Having run some motion offense in the past, I also appreciate the fact that I can keep my motion elements and implement this offense or use Coach Schultz's motion principles with the Hybrid Attack- both would work. It is nice to have lots of great breakdown drills to teach the offense as well. Thanks for sharing, Coach!
How to Avoid Offensive Droughts and Stall Outs!
All coaches have been here...
Your offense is clicking and running like a well oiled machine.
Then seemingly out of the blue, you go on a scoring drought!
Numerous possessions without a bucket. You can't make a shot. Your offense has "stalled out"!
Coach Schultz experienced those stall outs when they used to run the Dribble Drive Offense Attack exclusively.
One of the reasons he designed the Hybrid Attack Offense was to avoid those "stall outs" and solve that problem.
Now, when the dribble drive becomes stagnant, motion offense elements seamlessly kick in and change things up.
And when the motion offense goes cold, the dribble drive injects a surge of new attacks... keeping the defense honest... resulting in easy baskets.
That is one of the bigger benefits to the Hybrid Attack... it solves the "stall out" problem.
It's just a difficult offense to defend!
