Simple Youth Basketball Play 11:
"1-4 Wing"







Simple Youth Basketball Play 11 is called "1-4 Wing". This is an excellent play that utilizes multiple screens, a lot of cutting, and constant movement by all five players.

When executed properly, this play creates multiple scoring options and is very difficult to defend!

I hope you find this play to be helpful and informative!

Enjoy and best of luck!

  • If 1 is open, 3 should make the pass to them.

  • If 1 does not get the pass from 3, they should continue through the lane and use the double screen set by 2 and 4 at the low post area.

  • 3 will pass the ball to 4 who will swing it over to 1.

  • As this is happening, each ball handler should be looking for a drive to the basket or an open teammate in the lane area.

  • The players could also run the play again from the other side of the court. As 4 passes to 1, 2 would come up to set the screen to start the play.
