Simple Basketball Plays For Youth Basketball Coaches

Do you need an easy basketball play to add to your offensive playbook? Coaches need to have several offensive set plays in their arsenal that they can use during the course of the game to get their best players good looks at the basket, to help their team stay composed and organized, or to take advantage of a defensive tactic or weakness of the other team.


As a coach, you need to understand the right timing and strategy for using a specific basketball play. This knowledge and expertise will make you value-added as a bench coach on the sideline and increase your team's scoring opportunities during the game.


Knowing When and What Basketball Play to Call


To develop your basketball play calling skills and intuition, I believe you need to specialize in a limited number of proven basketball set plays. Offensive basketball plays that can be run from a variety of different offensive sets (1-4 set, 2-3 set, 1-2-2 set, 1-3-1 set, etc.) and used in a variety of different game situations (half-court offensive play, sideline out-of-bounds play, baseline under out-of-bounds play, etc.).


How will this knowledge and expertise in a core group of offensive plays help you and your team? From my experience, it made me a better teacher during practice. It limited the amount of valuable practice time I had to spend daily with my team repeating over and over our team's offensive basketball plays and individual player assignments for each set play. During the game, it improved my team's execution of the basketball set play called because my player's had a complete knowledge and understanding of how to run the play properly and why the play called works.


But most of all, the knowledge and expertise in a core group of offensive plays gave me complete confidence in what I was doing as a bench coach during the game. Intuitively, I felt like I knew the right play to call at the right time to give my team a fighting chance!
