If you’re going to integrate the Read & React into as much of your practice as possible, you’ll have to teach player development while teaching the Offense. This video gives you some ideas where those concepts can be inserted into basic drills.

And, the only way to cement those habits (both R&R and player development) is to get each player a bunch of reps. TJ shows you how to expand a basic Read & React drill into a team drill. That way players must pay attention: to rotations, to the quick movements – it begins to simulate game situations.

    Coach this is a drill that my team could certainly use…thanks a million!

    Isn’t the group that is doing the baseline drive using the wrong rotation? I thought the strong wing becomes the safety valve not the natural pitch?

    @Andy,

    The group in the Corner Spot are not driving Baseline, they are driving right which means the strong wing must Circle Move one spot right to the Natural Pitch.

    Now, if they were to drive left it would be a Baseline Drive and the strong wing would Circle Move one spot left to the Safety Valve.
