Learn how to choose & implement the best quick hitters for your team this season

Live recording of the popular virtual master clinic (now available for purchase)


Have you been having too many head in the hands coaching moments lately?

I understand.

From “The Coach” by my friend and colleague Ralph J. Sabock.
A foundational book on coaching.

I hated those moments when I was coaching, too. As a result, I was driven to become a better coach. Every year I chose a coaching topic with the goal of learning everything I possibly could about it. For example, the year I chose shooting led me to amazing encounters with some of the legends: Dick Baumgartner, Bill Sharman and George Lehman – these men laid the groundwork for today’s shooting techniques.

My experience in seeking knowledge from those around me and a lifetime of studying the game is how I came to create Solution-Based Basketball. And in deciding how to share the solution-based approach with coaches like you, I chose something familiar to all coaches – quick hitters – for this first virtual master clinic.

You’ve used a quick hitter or two or three, haven’t you? I’m sure you’ve had successes, but I’m also sure that, like me, you’ve also experienced failures.

Quick hitters aren’t rocket science, but there is an art and a science to them. They’re deceptively simple, beginning with their name. It seems as though they should be easy and, of course, quick. So we grab one and go. Sometimes it works. That’s wonderful! But, sometimes, it’s head in the hands again.

Is there a way to avoid these failures?

Yes. That’s why I created  A Slow Look at Quick Hitters. In this virtual master clinic (recorded live), you’ll learn an effective and practical approach to quick hitter success. You’ll learn how quick hitters help – but can also hurt – your strategy and your team. And I guide you through the process of understanding how to avoid their pitfalls.

The right blend of theory and practice so you can find solutions
for your unique situation.

I help you make the most of your limited time and give you proven fundamentals for teaching any quick hitter to your players. After all, teams change, situations change, and you must be able to adapt to those changing needs.

What will I learn?

I’ve discovered 4 principles that help coaches succeed with quick hitters.

I’m a lifetime student of the great game of basketball. I’ve been coaching and working with coaches for over 40 years, and I’ve discovered 4 principles that help coaches succeed with quick hitters. They are the cornerstones of building and implementing a successful quick hitter strategy. In our clinic, I’ll systematically introduce you to these principles and explain exactly how they work.

Four cornerstones of quick hitter successCornerstone 1: Build a Foundation

Have you ever practiced a quick hitter that failed miserably during the game? That doesn’t have to happen if you understand the commonalities of all quick hitters. Once you learn this foundation, you’ll never forget it – and when you need a quick hitter, you’ll know just what to do.

Even if you don’t buy this webinar clinic, I hope you’ll apply this principle. The key to success with quick hitters is to select the ones that are right for your team and your situation. Getting this right will save you time, increase your confidence and your players’ confidence.

If you do buy the clinic (and I hope you will; I’m excited about sharing this knowledge with you), you’ll learn how to identify the specific problem that a quick hitter needs to fix. And you’ll then learn how to evaluate potential choices in these ways:

  • Based on your team needs
  • Based on your present offense
  • How it fits with your coaching style
  • Where it fits in your competitive environment

We’re all pressed for time – and coaches more than many others. You’re short on practice time and preparation time. But there’s no two ways about it. Somehow the time to teach must be found. There’s no magic formula for this – but you already know that or you wouldn’t have read this far.

In this clinic, you’ll learn how to set priorities and organize so you’ll have the time you need to effectively teach your quick hitter (and you can apply these time management concepts everywhere else in your coaching and teaching.)

Four cornerstones of quick hitter successCornerstone 4: Don’t Slow the Feet

If you confuse the mind, you slow the feet. Quick hitters can add confusion to the defense, but they can add even more confusion to the offense if they’re not taught well to the players.

You’ll learn exactly how to break down any quick hitter and teach it to your team, no matter what the context is – within a flex, spread or any other O; whether it’s against man D, zone D or any other D; whether you want a post opportunity or anything else – and no matter what the level of your team is. You’ll also learn how to set up your quick hitters for success in all situations – out of transition, out of secondary O, running it first, running it second . . . the options are endless.

Use All the Cornerstones

Each of these four cornerstones enhances the others. Together, they’re much stronger than they would be if any were missing.

  • You’ll know how to adapt quick hitters successfully
  • You’ll be more confident in practice
  • Your players will be more responsive
  • You’ll be quick to use the Big Word Offense
