5 DVD set showing you exactly how to implement the Read & React into your entire practice.
Rick Torbett clearly walks you through five different practice templates that fit you where you are in your implementation and your season.
This footage is taken from 3 separate clinics using 3 different teams: youth, high school, and college. These practices will fit any team at any level!
*Formerly called "Read & React Clinics"
Putting together a DVD set that shows the progression of the Read & React through different practices is a great idea. The thing I liked most was the variety of ways that the principles of the offense were drilled: the warm-up section, staying in the offense while also focusing on skill work, progressions from 5-on-0 to 5-on-5 shell, then to 5-on-5 live were all well put together and helped me generate a lot of new ideas. I have put in a bunch of these new concepts with my team with great success. Also, if you have 1/2 a gym and a bunch of players (which is how we practice), there are some new ways to keep everyone involved.
I also appreciate that not every play ends in a made basket. Some of the "ugly" is left in the DVDs to remind us that the season is a work in progress. Bottom line, for me this DVD series helps to keep the training of the offense fresh and should spark plenty of new ideas in coaches who have run the system in the past or are just getting started.
You can't take a traditional practice template and stick the Read & React into it. It just won't work. The Read & React must permeate your entire practice. You must be able to develop your players, break the press, develop your defense, your transition game, etc, without ever leaving the Read & React. With the 5 practice templates within this DVD set, you'll learn exactly how to do it.
It's not possible to implement all of the Read & React in one day or one week. It's a process that changes throughout an entire season. This means that practice plans must change as the team absorbs the Read & React. These practices are five snapshots of how your practices should look at five different times during your season. Regardless of how deep you get in the Read & React, your practice plans will evolve as your team masters each layer's reactions.
Practice Template #1: Layers 1-3 to give you a working offense in a short period of time.
Practice Template #2: Layers 4-6 to complete the Foundation. Put your team on automatic.
Practice Template #3: Layers 7-12 to begin building Next Best Actions into your basket cutters.
Practice Template #4: Layers 13-16 completes the R&R in the half-court.
Layers 17-20 (the full-court layers) are built along the way in these first four practices.
Practice Template #5 takes the R&R to another level once the offense is in: control major actions on the fly, spend most of your time on defense, and get ready for the post season.
Using 3 different demonstration teams (youth, high school, and college) from 3 different clinics, Rick Torbett was able to show Reaction Drills, 5 vs 0 drills, 5 vs 5 hybrid games, and full court drills that are not found on any other Read & React DVD. You'll even see Zone Attack being taught, played, and adjusted against live zone defenses. We've been waiting for an opportunity to address practice planning for several years now. This is it. This is the beginning of where the rubber really meets the road.
Unlock your ability to practice plan and view your entire season through Read & React eyes.
