Offensive Plays

Offense Playbook

The offensive playbook contains various offensive basketball plays. Some of the basketball plays are simple and could be used by youth basketball teams while others are fairly complex. In the future I'll try to list the plays according to the learning curve and also what types of defenses each play was designed to beat. When applicable I'll give information on which college or pro basketball teams run certain plays.
