The Read & React Offense

The Read & React Offense is a great way to play basketball. Each time a new coach adopts it, the paradigm will shift with the program he or she applies it to. Whenever new methods become available, Read & React will be updated to bring you the absolute latest and greatest the offense has to offer. Rick has re-engineered the system to help coaches better teach and understand the concepts. This course contains a quick run-down of the first ten layers with updates.
