Variations DVD


  • The Read & React is a framework - the rules and reactions don't change. But, when you change your emphasis of action, your formation, how you use your post players, or a variety of other things, you get a Variation on the R&R theme. It's like jazz; the same rules are used throughout, but the songs always come out a bit differently (and keep the defense guessing).
  • In 3 hours, 27 minutes, you'll see 28 Variations that will add some additional dimensions to your Read & React.

Variations DVD Excerpt

During the summer of 2010, we held a few clinics for those coaches already running the Read & React. One of the two major themes was Variations' different ways of running the Read & React.

The Read & React is not an offense as much as it is simply offense. We're dealing with the building blocks of offensive basketball. The moment you change your personnel, change your formation, or emphasize one action over another, the Read & React adjusts to reflect those variables.

I knew that if I could deliver the operating system into the coaching community, the Read & React would take on the unique personality, teaching styles, and philosophy of every coach. And that's what's happened!

Most of these Variations are simply my observations of what coaches like yourself are doing with the Read & React. You're also going to see ideas from Coach TJ Rosene of Emmanuel College and Randi Peterson of Coe College who have both found success using the R&R.

Take this DVD for what it is: a collection of examples and ideas to stimulate your imagination. In it you'll see adjustments and variations for all formations – 5 OUT, 4 OUT, and 3 OUT. Perhaps you'll find the variation that best fits your personnel. Or, you may discover an adjustment to exploit specific weaknesses in your opponents.
