Coach Princeton Offense Playbookby Scott Peterman
WHY PRINCETON OFFENSE?
We break down the offense for you set by set and include the spacing options and timing that will make it effective. See why this offense has been so effective at every level. There are many layers to this offense and you can speed it up or slow it down depending on your personnel and level. If you only want to run some of it then that is an option, but these breakdown drills will help your players learn the offense.
Basketball coaching is a tough job because we are all looking for the newest and best ways to win a basketball game. What about just looking for the right way?
Pete Carril was a genius and put together a system of play that was revolutionary at the time. The Princeton Offense is constantly adapting with some new coaches adding their own innovations to the style including the Corner Offense by Rick Adelman and many of the Horns Sets you to see in the NBA.
This system will give you the tools you need to win by design.
I have coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. I just felt that fellow coaches especially young coaches need to constantly work on their “game”. Just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves. That is my story and why I do this blog.
