The Drill: Two-Player Screening
Posted Oct 4, 2004
A former assistant with the Seattle Storm and now Lakeside and NW HoopGurlz, Chris Bown has made his mark with individual player development. His latest
column is about a drill that works on setting screens and shooting off screens.
Two-Player Screening Drill
6-8 players, 2 coaches (passers) and 4-5 balls.
The players start in two lines. One line is at the top of the key and one on the wing opposite the coaches. The coaches line up at the wing, free-throw line extended. The balls start in the line at the top of the key. One of the coaches will always have a ball.
Passer (P1) at the top of the key initiates the drill with a pass to the coach on the wing. She steps toward her pass then cuts away to her teammate on the wing. On the pass the wing player (P2) will walk two steps toward the baseline/basket to set her player up for the screen.
P1 runs over and executes a two-foot stop to set her screen for P2. After setting her screen, P1 comes off for the jump shot. Coaches will pass the ball to each player for the shot.
P1 can slip the screen or pop after P1 comes off the screen. P2 can curl fade or catch and shoot.
