Hello and good morning! I’m a JV coach and an asst coach on varsity as well. I want to get better on teaching reads whether it be practice or a one on one session. I took the reads assessment and I’m average.
I learned reads when I was player watching film and seeing it take place during games so I’m trying to give the kids a better way of learning than I did.
3 on 3 IMO is prob the best way to learn how to read because You can learn so much from 3 on 3 but what if I don’t have that option?
thank you for taking the time to read this or even commentApril 23, 2021 at 1:49 pm #176690Inactive
Where is the “reads assessment”?April 23, 2021 at 3:10 pm #176692Inactive
Great day to be a Hall.
Thanks for sharing. I agree…3v3 is a great way to develop reads for the game. Specifically when you have constraints like 3v3 kickout where you only shoot layups and 3s and you can’t catch inside the arc…it forces players to learn
1- how to beat on-ball defender
2-when to pass to teammate based on off-ball defender’s help
Games like 2v2 Read the D where the off has an advantage and it’s a same sided game where the strong side help defender has to either help or stay home on corner/wing shooter is a good one.
The key is determining what “Reads” you think your players you coach need to learn the most of and then creating practice/training situations to work on that or those reads.
Def reads are important as well…it’s a long conversation and a good one. Thanks for starting it @Reed Hall
Grow the game,

Thank you @Sam Alleni figured this could be a huge discussion on how other coaches teach it and vice versa. I think at the high school level there should be more kids watching film. Studying other teams tendencies and their opponents skill set. Especially if you play a team twice maybe even more with summer ball.April 27, 2021 at 5:25 pm #176695Inactive
@Reed HallAt the beginning of Tyler’s Master Class in the Lock Left Defense, he shares a fascinating rubric that inverts the traditional teaching model. He posits we should teach Responsibilities, Reads, and then Techniques for accomplishing basketball proficiency. I’ve found it a very useful communications approach. It’s quite consistent with a games-based approach to coaches, in which we create situations, help players identify them, and then breakdown techniques they can employ to do it.

Hey Sam! So my updates are like this. I’ve been watching a lot of DJ sackmann and using his teachings on reads and skill development. Another book I bought I think in early 2020 “Complete guide to motion offense: Implementing the 5 out, 4 out or dribble drive” by Keith Rumjahn. A lot of the breakdown drills will help each position on how to make great reads and also play the position.June 4, 2021 at 10:19 pm #176750Inactive
Noticed that you’re also interested in teaching 1v1 reads. For that, Chris Oliver’s Basketball Decision Training (BDT) can’t be beat. Chris’s platform is Here
