Learn the Princeton Offense like never before. Memphis coaching icon, Mike Nienaber, teaches you the ins and outs of the offense that earned him over 100 wins in the last five seasons for Christian Brothers University. With its constant motion and various scoring options, the Princeton Offense can be very hard to dissect. Through the use of 5-on-5 action, progression breakdowns and options within each progression, Coach Nienaber makes this complex offense look simple.
Coach Nienaber takes you through a warm-up session that prepares your players for every scoring angle and option within the offense. The warm up session includes full speed, game like layups that simulate the backdoor cuts used in the Princeton Offense.
The Four Minute Drill get your team ready for the multitude of 3-point shots that this offense offers. With the "Five Up" drills, you can put your players through the essential moves used within the Princeton Offense; backdoor cuts, dribble handoffs and back screens are all implemented in this set of drills. With each drill, your players will learn how to read their defender and create scoring opportunities out of a back cut, post move, or screening action.
Coach Nienaber demonstrates in a 5-on-5 four minute drill how the offense will look once your team has mastered every option. As the players run through the offense in the full court setting, he explains each move, screen and set as it is happening on the floor so you know what to look for in a game like setting.
Once you have an idea of how the offense will look in a full court 5-on-5 setting, Coach Nienaber breaks out into 5-on-0 demonstrations and outlines every teaching progression. Nienaber teaches five different 'looks' of the Princeton Offense (Low, Five Up, Elbow, High and Chin). Each has at least three scoring options and can flow into another setup fluidly. Nienaber explains each setup and motion, then runs the options through with his team on the floor. He walks you through at a pace that will allow you to understand where the scoring options should occur and how to teach them to your players. By walking you through every option you will become a master at teaching the Princeton Offense.
Coach Nienaber does an excellent job of taking a complex system of cuts and putting them into steps that are easy to understand and implement.
If you're a high school coach looking for an offensive system that will keep your opponent guessing, this Princeton Offense is for you!
