Coach Rick Torbett is known worldwide for the development of the Read and React Offense, a system for implementing 5-player coordination without the use of set plays.

In this course, part 2 of a 5-part series, Coach Torbett uses three demonstration teams from different Read and React clinics to simulate a practice with content after the season has started. The course continues the needed review of the first 3 Layers but now covers the reactions of all players during North-South Dribble Penetration.  We apply it to Attacking Zones, Breaking Presses and Transition because teams are competing in the early part of your season.
