(Rental)-The Dematha Flex Offense
Mike Jones: The DeMatha Flex Offense
One of the nation’s top high school programs, DeMatha Catholic in Maryland, has continued its tradition of winning under head coach Mike Jones, who is nearing almost 20 years with the school since taking over for the legendary Morgan Wooten. Jones’ and DeMatha’s success has come from the coach’s unique twist on the ever-popular and effective Flex offense.
With over 400 wins and a national championship to his credit, Jones uses on-court demonstrations to show you the basics of the traditional Flex offense as well as some of his modern twists. Jones breaks down the instruction into easy-to-follow steps to make it easy for players of all skill levels to follow. Like other Flex coaches, Jones emphasizes correct spacing, proper positioning, and patience when using the offense to generate scoring opportunities.
DeMatha Flex Offense Drills
Coach Jones begins by walking you through practice drills designed to get players flowing naturally in the Flex offense. For example, Jones shows you a 2-on-2 breakdown drill where he teaches the proper techniques for setting and executing the flex screen. Jones also reviews some individual drills that can be used to improve shooting from different areas on the floor. The idea, of course, is to develop versatile players who can score from anywhere on the floor regardless of their position.
DeMatha Flex Offense Counters
No offense wins all the time. Jones shares four different counter measures for beating defenses trying to stop the Flex. These measures are designed to get ball handlers to the rim, use back door cuts, and a variety of screens. Coach Jones shows three counters to use when wing passes are being denied. You get to see each counter measure in a live 5-on-5 situation against defensive pressure.
At the end of the 78-minute video, Coach Jones offers up four effective options for generating post-up opportunities and spot-up jumpers. He will also show you how to create and exploit defensive mismatches. Coach Jones is one of the best at the high school level and his video is one of the best available for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of the Flex offense.
