#MotionOffenseTips – Flare Screens

By Randy Sherman

Using FastDraw as an educational tool, this video is a tutorial on the fundamentals of a basic element of motion offense – the Flare Screen.

The flare screen is one of the most common screens in four-out motion offense. Setting the screen properly and with excellent timing adds a dangerous element to your offensive attack.

Coaching and teaching points include:

  • When to use the flare
  • Screening angle and posture
  • Setting up the cut
  • Reading the flare screen
  • Maintaining spacing after the flare is set
  • Much more!
