One of the biggest reasons for his teams’ successes has been the Princeton offense.

The warmup includes full speed, game-like layups that simulate the backdoor cuts within the Princeton offense. Coach Neinaber explains the Four-Minute Drill which prepares players for the array of 3-point shots that the Princeton offense offers. Next are the Five-Up drills which put players through the essential moves used within the Princeton offense: backdoor cuts, dribble handoffs, and back screens. In each drill, players learn to read defenders and create scoring opportunities out of a back cut, post move, or screening action. Once players have mastered every option, Coach Neinaber moves into a 5-on-5 four-minute drill to show you how the offense will look. Players run through the offense in a full-court setting and Neinaber explains each move, screen, and set as it happens on the floor so you know what it should look like in a game situation.

Point Series The Point Series consists of six plays that you can run to counter a defensive strategy or exploit a certain weakness found in scouting an opponent. Snap Back is a play that creates a high-low opportunity for one of your perimeter players. Other plays free up shooters off of double screens, flare screens, and dribble handoffs. Low Series As it sounds, the Low Series features two plays that work off of post feeds by using screening actions to find openings for your perimeter players. Wheel is a counter used when the post feed is denied by using backdoor cuts and flare screens. Circle Series Vary your attack on the defense with five plays in the Circle Series. To get the ball to your best player in crunch time, use Circle Floppy. Fist Entry allows you to change up how you initiate the play against an aggressive denial defense. Use quick hitters that sent shooters off of flare or double screens. The Circle Series has something that you can install with your team right away. Chin Series When playing aggressive defenses that deny your initial passing options, the Chin Series gives you two options to counter. Coach DeForest shows you three different ways to counter defenses that sag versus back screens in the Chin Series. He also offers two more ways to exploit a defense that tries to switch on screens.

Spread Princeton Offense by Tara VanDerVeer Instructional Basketball Coaching Video
Tara Vanderveer (Rental)-Spread Princeton Offense $18.99
Tara VanDerveer, a highly accomplished coach with over 35 years of experience leading the Stanford basketball team, shares her knowledge and expertise on coaching basketball in this video presentation. She has a proven track record, having won three National Championships and coached USA Basketball to a Gold Medal, among many other accomplishments. In the video, Coach VanDerveer explains how she has adapted her team's style of play by implementing a 4-out positionless system that incorporates their version of the Princeton Offense (Jersey). She demonstrates how to create multiple scoring options by using a 4-out basic alignment, in which four guards line the perimeter with 8-12 feet in spacing, allowing for easy cutting action and feeding the post. By using this system, guards can back cut, cut over the top, flatten out, or exchange places, keeping the defense on their toes. She also uses a whiteboard session to diagram the actions and movements used to teach the Princeton Offense to her players. One of Stanford's favorite actions is their Blue Screen, in which the post player sets a ball screen on the best wing player and then follows up with a pin down screen on the wing after the ball is reversed. This action is tough to guard and creates a great scoring opportunity for the most athletic wing. They also run a simple Red Screen (wing pick & roll) that is created off of cutting action and the post player feeding the wing on a kick out. Coach VanDerveer's drills are centered around layups and quality shots within the offense, with an emphasis on getting the best possible shot. Playing positionless basketball allows players to have fun playing in different spots. In Pinch Post Shots, players feed the high post and work on their cutting action to simulate a screen, then come off of a screen for a shot. In Finishing Drill, athletes work on driving down the lane line and making various moves to get to the rim and finish through contact. In Buddy Layups, players work on swinging the ball around the perimeter and running actions they will use in their half-court offense, such as a backdoor cut for a layup and dribble hand-offs. The video ends with VanDerveer taking the viewer through live game film, helping players understand how to run great movements and actions against any defense. This video is 97 minutes long and was released in 2021.
Chin Series Continuity Offense: Highly Effective Princeton Concepts by Jeff Horner Instructional Basketball Coaching Video
Jeff Horner (Rental)-Chin Series Continuity Offense: Highly Effective Princeton Concepts $18.99
Jeff Horner takes the classic Princeton Chin Offense and modernizes it for today's game of basketball, where a shot clock and the 3-point line are prominent. The head coach at Truman State explains that the success he's had running this version of the Chin Offense is due to the way it involves everyone on the court and the potential scoring options for various players at any given time. The offense is also flexible and can be modified to adjust to changes in defensive tactics. In this highly informative on-the-court instructional clinic, all sets are demonstrated using 5-on-5 offense vs defense. Horner begins by showing the base set in the Chin Offense, where he demonstrates initial positioning and player responsibilities and roles within the offense. This leads to a good transition into the use of dribble hands offs (DHOs) to initiate the actions and the various types of screens that can be used, as well as when the continuity occurs, moments to look for in the high-low action and the best positions on the floor for bigs to post up. With Chin Pressures, Horner highlights how to tweak and adjust the offense when the opposing defense adapts and tries to take away DHOs. He also takes time to point out how the Chin Offense is especially tough to stop when you have a perimeter player who can really play and how to effectively use drag screens involving big-to-guard actions to free up additional scoring opportunities. In Chin Doubles, Horner shows how this option has been extremely successful in getting good, open looks on the perimeter – using staggered screens, and follows it up by covering how to quickly transition back into the Chin set and the best ways to incorporate high-low actions from this look. Horner then covers a detailed overview on how to surprise defenses by getting effective quick hitters out of sets that initially look like the Chin is being run. Quick hitters covered here include ‘Early’ – which is designed to get a shot within 5 seconds and features a corner 3 coming off a double-staggered screen.‘Early Back’ is a quick hitting option you can implement when defenses begin to cheat on ‘Early’ – featuring a 3-point opportunity on the same side that the ball is entered to initiate the offense. ‘Early Cross’ is an effective quick hitter that utilizes a cross-post screen and is designed to get your big the ball near the basket for a high-percentage, quick-hitting shot opportunity. Horner's version of the Chin Offense is a great fit for any level of basketball. Coaches who appreciate and understand just how effective and tough-to-guard different
