This post is a 5 minute video segment of Rick Torbett going through some ideas on improving the segment of your practice where you work on offense.
Regardless of what offensive system you use, I think you can get some ideas from this video. Not just the movements and spacing, but also how to work on your system and how to practice what you want to see happening.
It is also a very good way to make sure that you are covering all of the reactions that your players need to make when the defense disrupts your actions.
What do you want your players to do if the defense takes away your entry pass or other cuts and movements that are integral parts of your offensive attack?
Your second team defense might not be able to take those things away in a live practice scrimmage, but by the coach saying that those options are not available, first in 5 on 5, and then in 5 on 5, you can prepare your players for what they will face in a game.
Or, if your players are used to you calling for specific actions, you might be able to isolate a certain mismatch in the post or on the perimeter.
I believe that if you put some sustained thinking behind it, you can find away to apply some of these concepts in a way that improves your practices in preparing you for the games.
