If there was an answer to that question then every team in the world would be using the same offense...

It depends on the players you have at hand and how versatile they are.

Simple Motion offense is easily the best to use if you are teaching a team. Easy to teach and if ran correct hard to stop!

Shuffle is great but you need smart players who understand timing and spacing, so it should only be taught at the higher levels with an understanding of the game.

A simple passing motion or a basic flex depening on the level/age group where everyone is invovled and the concepts are easy to understand.

I wouldnt use Flex for teaching....going to create limited players.

Any kind of spaced motion offence is good for teaching. DDM can be used if you want to create good one on one players but your centre will suck!!

Motion is the best for your circumstances. It gets everyone involved and is especially good if you dont have overly tall players.

A) There's no universal answer to this question.

B) Motion (Read and React) offenses are generally considered the best for youth development, as it teaches players how to read the game, develop an all-around skill set and instinctively play as a team, rather than simply teach them how to run a set play.

Again, how one goes about teaching a motion offense contains too much depth for this discussion...

Motion is pretty simple to teach and use. There's a few golden rules and kids love simplicity.

re: Best offense to use?

i dont agree with a lot of respones about motion.
what motion are you talking about...

what are you basic principles?????

its far too general to just say motion.

anyway to answer your question you need to say what is your age group, skill level, strength??? etc before anyone could offer anything to help you

Motion offense is good- you set the rules and parameters you want- it incorporates making reads, making decisions, moving with and without the ball.

If you want to be flexible you need to look at learning to read your opponents defence zone or man and then run your offence accordingly, teach kids basics of most offences and then run with it from there.

Motion offence/s and their principals should be compulsory for juniors.
