Video & eBook - The Hybrid Flex Offense with Don Kelbick
Dear Basketball Coach,
This video teaches you the very popular "base flex offense" and then builds on the traditional base offense by showing you new variations, options, entries, and concepts that turn it into the "Hybrid Flex Offense".
Don has a unique way to teach the flex and he shares the methods and ideas that have worked for him as a high school and college coach. Don gives some great advice on running an effective traditional flex offense. But he takes things to another level by showing you how to add options to the offense making it unpredictable and difficult to guard.
Once you are able to implement the options, the offense can become incredibly effective because players can make reads in the offense throwing the defense off balance. At any time during the base flex, a player can see an opportunity to run an "option" and get a quick score. Players feel empowered, defenses get confused, and your flex continuity offense takes on some "motion" benefits and characteristics.

Why Should You Consider the Hybrid Flex Offense?
The Hybrid Flex offense is a very effective offense that is based on a continuity pattern. All 5 players get to play all 5 positions, which is excellent for player development.
You will have great spacing, player movement, and ball movement. With the constant passing, cutting, flex screens, and screen the screener actions, it can be a nightmare for defenses to guard.
With the way that Don teaches the counters and motion principles, it is also highly adaptable. The way that he simplifies the structure and constant flow of the offense, the defense will never know what is coming because when you go to a counter he teaches you how to transition seamlessly back into the continuity. On one possession, you can see flex pattern, counter, counter, flex pattern, flex pattern, flex pattern, counter, flex pattern, counter, and so on. With proper teaching, your offense will execute this perfectly.
To emphasize the strengths of your players, Don will also teach you how to get your ball handlers opportunities to attack the rim, how to get your shooters open shots, and your post players more touches.
Part of the reason this offense is so popular and so effective is because it's based on a screening action that is very difficult to stop, even when you know it's coming.
Then add the fact that there are unlimited options when running the hybrid flex offense, it becomes even harder to stop. If the defense does one thing, there is always a counter and simple way for the offense to react. You can start simple and add options as players get comfortable.
There is no limit to the advancement of this offense. You can start very simple. And then slowly advance with no limits. You probably don't realize it, but this offense is very popular at the college and NBA levels. In 2012, the Bulls, Hawks, Jazz, Magic, and Heat all ran variations of the flex offense. Each team had a unique way to run the offense.
This is another reason why the hybrid flex is so hard to stop, there is no one set way to run it, so you can't really prepare for it. That's tough for coaches and defenses.
This might sound complicated, but I can assure you it's not. It's simple and works at all levels of play (youth to the NBA).
