I'll teach the kids to beat the press, have some good ideas there. Will definitely have my better ball handlers as my "beat the press" kids.
Sorry I'm late to the party, coach, but I have taught my boys to look forward to being pressed, because we can punish the other team by scoring easy baskets. I'm honest with my team that it will be uncomfortable, but that it is uncomfortable for both sides. Our CYO league doesn't permit backcourt pressure until 6th grade, so maybe my guys were a little older than yours. You had mentioned you will have your "better ball handlers" beat the press. I try to keep my boys from taking the easy (and trappable) route of dribbling like a maniac up the sidelines. The things I always stress are not catching the inbounds pass in a trappable area (below the block or near the sidelines), always working toward the middle rather than the sidelines, and pass, DON'T DRIBBLE, your way out of the press. I am lucky to have a couple of bigger kids who don't fluster who flash from mid-court toward the top of the key to receive a pass from guard who initially got the inbounds pass. The big then turns upcourt and looks for teammates who are flashing into open spaces. The only reason to dribble at this point is to get a better angle for a pass. I also sometimes will call a play where the big flashing to the top of the key receives the inbounds pass directly and the guards both streak up the court on either side looking for a pass from the big. A key is to get rid of the ball before the pressure gets there. One other thing...I permanently assign the inbounds pass to a big (either the 4 or 5). That way there is no confusion on whose responsibility it is and the defense doesn't get as good a chance to set up if we execute the in-bounds quickly.
