Mike Maker's offense has been referred to as "the Princeton Offense on steroids." This high paced version of the old classic excites his players and yet maintains the discipline necessary to be one of the most efficient offenses in college basketball. For the first time, you can witness how this coaching veteran of 23 years prepares his team for the upcoming season.
This unique All Access DVD set is packed with breakdown drills and variations of Coach Maker's hybrid Princeton Offense. He shares his 90/10 Concept. 90 percent of his practices are focused on offense while 10 percent are focused on defense.
During the practice Coach Maker runs predominately offensive drills to refine his players' offensive skills sets. Witness how Maker teaches the many Princeton options in a 5-on-0 setting and then allows his players to execute them according to their individual strengths. He encourages his players to follow their instincts as they move into controlled 5-on-5 scrimmages, allowing the offense to evolve.
Coach Maker spends a tremendous amount of time with the team scrimmaging, with an emphasis on running the Princeton Offense. During this time Maker and his staff correct the players in an All-Star fashion to ensure that there is teaching going on, but also to condition the players. This demonstration of the offense in motion is a critical teaching tool for the coach. It's hard to find a team that executes so fluidly within an offensive concept as sophisticated as the Princeton offense. You will understand why it's called "the Princeton on steroids."
There is no down time in Maker's practices and you will benefit from numerous skill and conditioning drills. Each of them is an extension of the overall offense. In separate drills, you will learn how Maker teaches his man-to-man defensive principles in 3-on-3 and 2-on-2 drills. This DVD is the complete package.
In true All Access fashion, you will be able to watch the coaching staff prepare each practice. See them implement their weekly goals into daily practices, as they discuss skill and strategy needs and progressions.

All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's gym can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you! Basketball Videos
