Fundamental Rules of Offense


  • Space favors offense.
  • Look for 2v1 and 3v2 opportunities and exploit them with your teammates.  If the defense is out of position or a player is double teamed that means that an offensive player is open.
  • Stay ahead of the ball on transitions (allow ball carrier to see help).
  • Get covered.  Be a threat and make the defense cover you.  This will open up the field for your teammates.
  • If covered, move the ball!!!
  • Follow the slide.
  • If the ball/offensive player is coming at you, cut through to stay dangerous.
  • If the ball/offensive player is moving away form you, follow behind for supports.
