5 Out - Pass and Cut

"Pass and Cut" is the simplest concept of the 5-Out Offense.

Every time you pass, you must cut to the rim.

After the pass, the other 5 players rotate to the closest available spot on the floor.

Phase 1

  • 1 passes to 2
  • 1 cuts hard to the rim, looking for the give-and-go for a layup
Phase 2
12345
  • 2 fills the next open spot
  • 4 replaces 2
  • 1 replaces 4
Phase 3

  • 3 passes to 2
  • 3 cuts to the rim
Phase 4
12345
  • 5 fills the empty spot
  • 3 replaces 5
Phase 5
