    I am going back to coach high school as head coach. I had been doing some college as an assistant, and the equivalent of AAU, also. My kid is now a sophomore and I would rather coach him and his buddies than any of the choices. So just when you think you are out ...etc, etc.

    Anyway I have always consulted, stolen, etc with from other coaches. But, like any community it gets stale, and similar. I plan to coach this group for two years, so a seris of plays from the same setup (box, stack etc) would be cool since I have time to teach.

    My talent, as it is. only two good 3 shooters, but I expect to deelop two more, but we will never be a bombs away team. We are going to be a ballscreen put it inside team, but I expect to see a fair biy of zone since we ar big and don't shoot great.

    Anyway, end of game , inbounds, trick plays, sets with counters, etc. I ask for your best pages form you playbooks. Keep in mind I play fiba rulkes 24 second clock, no timeout from the floor, can advance ball on timeout.

    Talent:
    Undersized point guard, best shooter, good penetrater, passer, pass first guy, but I am handing him the reins to score more, back up guys are
    Athletic 3/4 bit short ofr a forward but very strong quick, getting footabll college interest as a LB
    Big athletic five, can throw him oops, not supper skilled but I will get him to finish around the rim. Skilled enough to pass, dribble handoff, probably never be a 3 shooter
    Tweener 3 man other 3 point shooter. Was an early maturer was dominant post up guy until he maxed out a 6 feet tall. But has post up skill set. Very strong, can put ball on the floor
    Slow footed shooter. Wants to be Kobe, but should try to be Kerr.
    Young 3/4 (My kid) should end up s three shooter, smart coaches kid type, good passer
    A slew of athletic slashers who as of now cannot shoot.(welcome to western Canada)

    I'm just a fan, so I have nothing, but are you just planning on running the Princeton Offense with that group? Seems like if you get the team conditioned enough to run around forever you could exploit the back door cut mercilessly, especially if the 5 can pass well. With all that athletic slashers who can't shoot...

    That's the ideal, and I need to teach kids to play so they can make the reads to do that type of stuff.

    Lots of names for what I will run, starts with a triangle, high low. I expect my 5 to be beast by the end of the year so i want to get the high low.

    I am doing a basic triangle set with a forward high low.

    But my guys are sophisticated enough to do a couple of sets from different setups, formats.

    I like the warriors stuff, but so much of it predicated on everybody being interchangeable and a shooter.

    The Golden State Warriors system really doesn't fit what reggiecleveland described his team as (athletic slashers). Maybe if he can improve their shooting, but it doesn't seem likely without hours spent shooting.

    One thing that comes to mind, I guess, is looking at the Celtics pre-Horford.

    Only coached through eighth grade, so I doubt that I can be much help. But I would definitely recommend at least three versions of inbounds plays (under your basket, under their basket, sideline-by default) that you can call on. Also recommend vetting whatever offensive sets you come up with against both man and 2-3 in practice. Teams will likely use both man and zone on you, if only to keep you guessing.

    I think that you're on the right path with simple plays that have basic reads. Game speed is so much faster than than practice speed, as I'm sure you know, and complex stuff falls apart. Of course that could be an eighth grade thing...

    This is really good thanks.

    Some of this we have in place already. But this is more comprehensive than stuff I had seen before.

    More on the Gonzaga offense:

    Five-on-zero walkthrough of the base offense.

    Here is some (2015) video of Gonzaga running it; there are plenty of examples of wrinkles (dribble handoffs from the big to the wing, and--perhaps more importantly--what happens when a pass is denied or there are two players instead of three on the strong side.)

    Flex. Run flex. Off flex add some flare screens and UCLA cuts. Always a fan of 1-4 high too. Especially with an athletic rim running big. Easy to slip screens w no back line defender.
