Discover Read & React 2.0

When you equip your team to move the ball, move players, and maintain the correct amount of spacing, you will create an “athletic ball” that will find a scoring opportunity – it will find a defensive breakdown!  Why should you play like everyone else when all of your opponents are prepared for traditional basketball?

This course will teach your team how to play in a way that none of your opponents are prepared for and give your players the competitive edge you’ve been looking for!

"...our kids love the freedom to score!"

“Southern NH University Women’s Basketball is coming off our best year in 30+ years.  21-7 overall, NE10 Regular Season Champions,  1st in NCAA Northeast Region, and hosted the NE10.

SNHU runs the Read and React. Our offense was fun to watch!

We play an exciting brand of basketball, and our kids love the freedom to score! We led the league in scoring with 72.5 ppg.

We had two First Team All-Conference players and one 3rd Team All-Conference player.  We had one WBCA All-American Honorable Mention as well.”

— Karen Pinkos | Head Women’s Basketball Coach | Southern New Hampshire University

Customers’ reviews


Well we made our State Tournament with a 25-1 record and won our first 2 games at State. 27-3. We made lots of memories, and for an ol' football coach, I sure love coaching basketball thanks to your offense. Thank you,
T. Strohschein
You see we had a very athletic team but only one of the girls on the team was really a basketball player, all the rest of them were soccer players. Well, after a few years of implementation, we did it. We made it all the way to the State Championship and we won. That was in 2019. In 2020 we made it back to the State Semifinals but that was when Covid hit... I tell you this as a thank you for helping us teach a group of soccer players how to play basketball and win a State Championship.​

If you are questioning R&R, we just went 27 varsity games without having ever called a “play”. I certainly made points of emphasizing certain actions, but my girls learned how to adapt on their own to what the defense threw at them. They’ve learned HOW to play, not plays – and it only will get better as we move forward with a year of experience under most of their belts.
