The "Swing Offense" is one of the most successful offenses being used today at the high school and university levels. Seattle Pacific University Head Coach Ryan Looney explains how this offense helps promote unselfishness, limit turnovers, provide great spacing, multiple players post up opportunities, and allows them to get to the free throw line. All of which is critical to offensive efficiency and to the success his team has enjoyed running this offense.
Through the use of diagrams, on-court instruction and video from game footage, Coach Looney gives you everything you need to put this offense into action. He details the basics and advanced skills and actions in the swing offense. You will see how simple this offense is to teach, yet how difficult it is to defend.
TRANSITION - Starting with the transition game, Looney shows you how the Falcons transition from defense to offense and flows into the offense. Each player's role is broken down in transition and he demonstrates where early 3-point shots and post ups will occur. You'll learn various entries to start the offense, as well as watch game footage to see how the team transitions into the offense.
SCREENING - Coach Looney dives into the half court set-up with the two main types of screens:
The Swing offense is a great team offense. It promotes good floor spacing and constant movement. Defenders are required to constantly fight through screens, adjust to off ball movement and stay active on the weak side. Eventually the defense will make a mistake that will lead to easy buckets for the team running the Swing. Getting your team to be unselfish is an important aspect to having a successful offense. With the Swing, unselfishness is almost guaranteed. Players are constantly getting open and teammates can easily identify this and get them the ball.
