This is a great resource and has excellent ideas about getting the players open, and making the shots. Hopefully it will help my relatively short but quick team score more points. Thanks heaps for the great website! Keep it up!

Another very good product. It is very helpful to see the cuts and screens on the DVD and helps the other motion offence products you offer to really make it easier to implement. Thanks again for offering such great resources.

The open post offense is an excellent tool to teach your young players how to move on offense. It seems like a great way to teach the foundation of motion offense that eventually segues into either a high post or a high-low offensive set as taught by John Wooden. Excellent video.

Great offensive scheme for youth basketball coaches and one of the best videos (simple, well organized and easy to execute) that I have come across. Even if you don't promote the open post there is guaranteed at least one set or series that will help improve your team.

I found the DVD to be very well organized and easy to understand. I plan to use this as our base man-to-man offense this year instead of using set plays as I have in the past. I’ve always stayed away from rules offenses simply because my players really aren’t able to understand them. I have a wide mix of abilities and talent on the team I coach for a small parochial school. They’re great kids, but basketball is a second sport for many of my players. I have a mix of Hockey, Soccer, and Football players, that play basketball for fun. Only a handful of them have plans to play basketball at the high school level. I think this open post offense will be easy enough for my 7th and 8th graders to learn, and yet complex enough with the different entries that it won’t be easy for the defense to stop consistently. The problem with most rules based offenses is that many of my average middle school players are not savvy enough to run them due to the complexity. They are usually so focused on going from spot to spot that they fail to really look at the defense, read it, understand it, and react to it quickly. I believe that open post solves this for us, because it doesn’t require the player to make too many decisions, based on what their defender does on a screen, cut,’s easy to teach the backdoor cut on overplay, and we already do this, but to expect the players I have, to read a defenders reaction to a screen…over, thru, under….is asking too much for us at this point. In this version of open post, they can just do the same thing using the simple rules, and there is always someone coming back to the ball as an option.
I really like all of the different entry plays included in the DVD, that allow you to run a set play and continue right into the open post offense.

after watching the video, I''''ve decided that a good portion of my offense will be the open post.a great video. Very informative and easy to follow.

The Open Post DVD is exactly what we need for this year's high school girls team. We are short and quick and our point guard really has decent post up skills so we look for her on the low block when she makes her basket cuts. The cutting series has been working well especially against overplaying defenses.
The problem is, whenever we start getting good results from our mtm offense, we usually see a zone.

Very good presentation of the set-up and rules. I would have enjoyed seeing a shadow defense running to show reads and movement of baseline men. Overall very good

I have run what I called Spread Offense which is the same as this Open Post Offense. I always struggled when I played against team that played a Sagging Man to Man. The Screen series really helped me to develop a great offense to run against this defense. The additional practice drills will be very helpful as well. I highly recommend this offense for all youth teams to understand how to have movement on offense.

I am using the open post for my boys team, however I really don't see much difference in it from the read and react office that I run with the girls team. They both work on the same prinicple of pass cut and move. Despite that I have found that the open post is more suited to the boys style of offense than the girls. Nevertheless I think that it was well worth the money that I paid for it I just wish that I had seen it before spending over $200.00 for the read and react package

I had ordered Coach Huggins DVD on the Cut and Fill offense and was trying the offense but felt there was something missing. This DVD really cleans it up and I am really looking forward to using this offense this year. The DVD instruction is presented very well and I would recomend it to anyone except a league opponent. hahaha

Very Good DVD, Mr Perkins could speak a bit slower as he does talk rather fast.

Very, very similar to 1or2 layers of R&R. My Grade 9's are running the R&R version of the pass-cut-fill system. The adjustment of the wing players cutting to the free throw line is a nice version. In fact, I think its a better option IMO.

The amount of ideas for plays that he gives away free of charge is also a nice touch. For lower age groups this is a perfect way to teach motion.

Love this dvd. Super helpful in the areas Coach Perkins covers. He does a great job of explaining the cutting and screening series, and I like all the extra entries and options he includes. Terrific!

The only thing on which I wish he had done more (maybe he covered this in the webinar?) is the element of rebounding. I'm going to have to spend some time on my own figuring out just how to emphasize crashing the boards when you have all your players but one spread out on the perimeter. If a quick player cuts hard to the basket and gets to the hoop and everyone else is rotating to fill spots, there's not going to be much of a presence inside. If anyone has thoughts on that, I'd love to hear them.

Otherwise, this product is terrific. Well worth the money.

I had great hope about this DVD, and is worth every dollar (Euro). They way everything is explaned and shown in practice are really great. The cutting series offered me a total new view of getting mutch more motion in our play. My players love the new entries because they comes as a suprise for our opponents !

Great info... a refresher on this tried and true formula as well as some new ideas. Will try to incorporate into my offense with the Girls JV Team. Wish there was a Playbook outline to help with the education of the team.

I loved the DVD and I also liked that Mr. Perkins is from Louisiana like me. It is very simple to understand. It looks like an easy offense to teach to players. I can not wait to run this offense once I start coaching high school basketball in a few years. I can run this with my youth league.
